A U.S. judge was sorry to see one of the best kids at school facing her in court.

The accused, Arthur Booth, who was arrested after a police chase was distraught to see the judge. He broke down in tears and kept repeating ‘Oh my goodness’ after recognizing the judge as his middle school pal from years gone by. The judge was always wondering what had happened to one of the nicest kids at school.
Judge Mindy Glaze said: “I’m sorry to see you here.” She set bail for $43,000. She also said “I always wondered what happened to you.”
Judge Glaze was also conscious of the time that had elapsed since her time at middle school. She said: “What is sad is how old we’ve become.”
Arthur Booth replied with: “oh my goodness”.
The U.S. judge finished her questioning of Booth by saying: “good luck to you sir, I hope you change your ways and lead a good lawful life one day.”
