Emotional court room school reunion for judge and alleged burglar

Things got a bit teary.

NewsTV / YouTube

A JUDGE AND a man appearing before her court have had an emotional reunion upon realising they were middle school classmates.

This happened when Arthur Booth, who had been arrested earlier in the week on a range of charges, including an alleged burglary, appeared before the Miami court of Judge Mindy S. Glazer.

The two had attended Nautilus Middle School – a fact that Judge Glazer points out to Booth.

Upon realising the two had been classmates Booth breaks down in tears repeating “oh my goodness!”, with Glazer expressing her sympathies for how things have worked out for him.

According to NBC, the incident happened last Thursday with the report of the incident only being released today.

Speaking in court, Glazer says, “I am sorry to see you there, I always wondered what happened to you sir.”

This was the nicest kid in middle school, he was the best kid in middle school. I used to play football with him, all the kids, and look what has happened.
