Judge Has an Impromptu Reunion With Her Old Middle School Classmate
This is sweet, it's touching, it's sad, it's powerful. It's pretty much everything all at once making us feel a whole jumbled mess of emotions.
In a courtroom in Florida, Judge Mindy Glazer thought it was going to be just like any other day at work until one of her old classmates from middle school ended up in front of her.
"Did you go to Nautilus...for middle school," she asked. As soon as he realized that the judge presiding over his court bond hearing was his former classmate, he couldn't contain his emotions. "Oh my goodness," he exclaimed, putting his hand over his face in disbelief.
"Oh my goodness," he repeated before putting his head down.
"I'm sorry to see you there. I always wondered what happened to you, sir," she said. "This is the nicest kid in middle school...he was the best kid in middle school. I used to play football with him - and look what happened. I am so sorry to see you there."
Still, knowing the judge didn't see to help his case at all. She told him she hoped he'd come out of this ok and lead a lawful life. According to NBC Miami, his bail was set at $43,000.
