Suspect weeps after realizing judge is ex-classmate

A Miami-Dade judge and a burglary suspect had a one-of-a-kind reunion in bond court, as the man broke down in tears, while the judge offered him some supportive advice.

Circuit Court Judge Mindy Glazer never expected a middle school reunion would occur while on the job.

"Mr. Booth, I have a question for you," she asked 49-year-old Arthur Booth.

"Yes, ma'am?" he responded.

"Did you go to Nautilus for middle school?"

"Oh, my goodness," said Booth, as he covered his mouth in shock.

Booth, now a suspected burglar, was reunited with his middle school classmate decades later in the court of law. When realizing who his judge was, he broke down in tears.

"Sorry to see you there," said the judge. "Mr. Booth, I hope you're able to change your ways, good luck to you."

Booth's bond was set at $43,000
