WATCH: Former Classmates Reunite As Judge & Defendant
This is truly heartbreaking to watch.
Imagine seeing your old classmate 20-30 years after graduating. Most people would be feel with joy and happy to run into them. However, for Judge Mindy Glazer and Arthur Booth it wasn’t.
In an emotional video, you see what happens when the two reunite.
Shuffling papers, Miami-Dade County Judge Mindy Glazer said, “I have a question for you — did you go to Nautilus (middle school)?”
Booth clapped his hand to his face. “Oh my goodness!” he said with a smile that soon turned to tears.
“I’m sorry to see you here. I always wondered what happened to you,” Glazer said as Booth cried.
This was the nicest kid in middle school. He was the best kid,” Glazer said, reminiscing on their time at the Miami Beach school. “I used to play football with him, all the kids, and look what has happened.”
As Booth, overwhelmed with emotion, shouted “Oh my goodness!” seven times, Glazer said she hoped he turns his life around.
“Good luck to you sir,” she said. “I hope you are able to come out of this okay and just lead a lawful life.”
Glazer set his bond at $43,000, drawing their brief interaction to a close. Booth remains in jail.
The video is truly heartbreaking to watch. It’s also sad to see a man that had so much potential fail to reach it. A relative of Arthur stated, he was a loving father and grandfather but got caught up in drug abuse and has been to jail before.
