People's Court judge Marilyn Milian deserves to let loose once in a while -- and she did just that on a recent beach vacation with her family. Ditching her traditional judicial robes and sunbathing topless in a pair of bikini bottoms, the outspoken 52-year-old showed just how comfortable she is in her own skin.
Per the New York Post, Milian was vacationing in the Caribbean with her husband, Florida Judge John Schlesinger. They were accompanied by their three daughters, Cristina, Alexandra, and Sofia.
A former Florida state circuit court judge, Milian took over The People's Court in 2001. She is the first female judge to preside over the long-running show, and the first Latina to host a nationally syndicated TV court program. Last September marked her 12th season on the show's bench, making her one of the longest-serving judges in People's Court history.
"I was always a little too responsible," she told the New York Times in 2008 of becoming a lawyer at 23. "While my friends were dancing on tables, I was prosecuting first-degree murder cases."
