Judge Caprio called a little girl to his stand to deliver her mom’s final verdict after hearing about the tragic year they endured.
Judge Frank Caprio grew to fame for his syndicated show, “Caught in Providence,” which shares footage of some of the most inspiring stories and cases he has handled.
Located in Providence, Rhode Island, he has made internet viewers’ hearts melt and even made headlines in news outlets.
One of his episodes from 2020, “A Tough Year,” features a young mother, Massey English, and her daughter Kaya presented before him. The judge immediately noticed how adorable the toddler was and engaged in conversation.
Caprio then allowed English to explain why she received a parking ticket. According to the mom, she was claiming her daughter’s birth certificate when it happened.
She also revealed that she had to pick up the certificate because her husband, unfortunately, recently died from cancer.
Caprio realized that English had been in his courtroom earlier that year and reasoned that her son broke his arm and was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for five days. She said:
“It’s been a rough year. It’s been a lot for myself and both of my children the last year. There’s a lot that went on.”
Being the understanding and compassionate judge he is, Caprio asked English’s daughter to approach the bench and deliver the final verdict.
The adorable toddler sat on the judge’s lap and waved at her mom before claiming English was not guilty. Caprio then said:
“Wall, Kaya says you’re not guilty. Now I can’t compete with that.”
The mom rejoiced as soon as her daughter pounded the hammer, declaring the final ruling. The video has since amassed nearly three million views and thousands of comments.
Many among the social media users were moved by the judge’s kindness and how he continues to treat violators with humanity.
Recently, a Florida woman pleaded to the court, asking if she could rescue a cat from a crumbling building.
One person pointed out that Caprio remembered the woman and her son’s accident, which means he listens and truly cares for others.
Sadly, not all final verdicts from the court are made from compassion and understanding. Recently, a Florida woman pleaded to the court, asking if she could rescue a cat from a crumbling building.
In June, the Champlain Towers South condominium partially collapsed, driving the decision to demolish what remained. However, Stacy Karron asked if she could save the pets inside, including a cat, Coco.
Sadly, Judge Michael Hanzman denied her request and even felt deceived to know that Karron was not a condominium resident. It turned out that pets were previously saved, and doing another round would be dangerous.
