Judge Frank Caprio knows that his job isn’t just about upholding the law, but about being fair and just when examining one’s circumstances.
Even when drivers are in the wrong and violate the rules of the road, he takes into consideration the fact that we are all human, and that we all make mistakes!
Drivers who end up in his courtroom don’t always experience their desired outcome, but many have known his kindness.
This time, as seen on Caught in Providence, a mom shows up in court with her two daughters because she failed to pay a $100 parking ticket and the subsequent fines.
When she stands before Judge Caprio, she tries defending her decision to park on the sidewalk, but he’s more interested in her 6-year-old daughter, who he even calls her up to the bench, asking her questions about herself and what she wants to be when she’s older.
The most surprising moment during the trial comes when the little girl tells him that she’s hungry after spending the morning in court, Judge Caprio makes a deal with the mom to buy her daughter breakfast and he dismisses them.
