A 49-year-old guy named Arthur Booth was arrested in Florida last year for burglary. And a video from his arraignment was in the news, because it turned out his judge went to MIDDLE SCHOOL with him.
Her name is Mindy Glazer, and he got pretty emotional when she recognized him. Then he broke down in tears while she talked about how he was the nicest kid in school.
That was about ten months ago, and he’s been locked up since then. But he just got out of jail this past Tuesday after he agreed to enter a drug treatment program.
And when he walked out, Mindy was there waiting to give him a big hug. He told the local news that she’s been an inspiration for him. And he knows this is his chance to turn his life around, so he’s not going to screw it up.
