Remember the touching but rather surreal video of a judge recognising a defendant as an old school friend last month? Well, lightning has only gone and struck twice.
Miami Judge Mindy Glazer presided over the bond hearing of her childhood classmate, Arthur Booth, in a video that went super-viral across the internet and touched the hearts of pretty much everyone who watched it.
Now, just one month on, she has found herself in the presence of yet another person from her past, albeit her more recent past, after recognising defendant Alon Glenn from a cruise she had enjoyed just a week before.
Judge Glazer starts the proceedings with, “Did you have a nice cruise?”, but an emotional Glenn is initially lost for words…
I wonder if it will happen a third time?
