(energetic folk music) (air whooshing) Silvia Colby. Hi.
Good morning, Silvia. Please get close to the microphone, okay? Silvia, who’s with you? Who is this? That’s my daughter. Yeah, what’s her name? Justina. Justina. Hi Justina. Hi, how old are you? Say I’m three. Three?
Three, three. (crowd laughing) (laughing) All right, Justina, we’re gonna show you a movie. Watch the movie, okay? (laughing) Okay, Miss Justina?
(laughing) That’s mommy. We’ll give you some popcorn and some candy too, to watch the movie, okay?
Popcorn. Okay.
And the popcorn. All right, your mom is charged with going through a red light. Ugh.
On Westminster Street and Barton Street, and we’re gonna see if she did it. So, look up there. Look up there. Okay. The light is red. Oh, boy. That’s me.
Okay, Justina, come up here, come on. You stay there. No, no, you stay there.
Okay. All right, Inspector Caragan gonna get her up here.
Cool. Come here Justina, come here. Do you mind if I pick her up? Huh?
Do you mind if I pick her up?
Oh no, no problem. Come on. (crowd laughing) Hold that. Bang it. (gravel banging) Okay. Now Justina, I’m gonna ask you a question, okay? And you answer me. Is your mommy not guilty or guilty? Guilty. Guilty! (crowd laughing)
(crowd clapping) Okay, Justina, bang that. (crowd laughing) Bang it again, and say guilty. Guilty.
Guilty again. Guilty. Ohh.
She’s a very smart girl. (crowd laughing) I think some day she’s gonna be a judge. Sylvia.
Yeah? How many children do you have? I have two and one coming, three. You do? Mm-hmm.
How many months pregnant are you?
Six. Are you having a boy or a girl? I don’t know, I don’t wanna find out, because I have two girls already. (laughing) Now, if you have a boy, if you have a boy, you’re rooting for a boy. You want a boy? I want a boy. I hope you have a boy, too.
Oh, thank you. Now, I know that it’s tough to get a good boy’s name, but you may wanna consider naming your son, Francesco. Ooh, okay. It’s a great name, everybody wants it.
All right. Only certain people
All right I’ll remember– Can have it.
that. But if you name him Francesco, you may get some consideration in this court, you know? Okay, now your daughter banged the gavel, and she said guilty.
Yeah. And that’s official. Okay, and she’s very honest, but I’m gonna overrule her. I think that we’re gonna dismiss the case. Oh, thank you! (laughing) I think maybe you spend the money on the new baby. (laughing) And on Justina as well. (laughing) Bang it again.
(hammer banging) Say guilty. Guilty. (laughing)
Guilty. Guilty a third time.
Guilty. (laughing) She keeps saying guilty. (guitar strumming)
(air whoosh) Your motor vehicle has been booted. You have, one, two, three, four, you have five red light violations. You were before the court, three months ago, and your motor vehicle had been booted then. Yeah. You were given an extraordinary break. The boot was released, on a payment of $40. That’s almost unheard of, and there was a balance of $460. That you were supposed to pay $75 bi-weekly. (clears throat) And I gave you this break.
Mm-hmm. I’m the one. Well, what happened was–
And then, and then Diana, right? After you paid forty, the city paid $100 to have this boot released. Mm-hmm.
The city paid $100. Mm-hmm.
All right, and I don’t know what you told me, it must have been a pretty good story, I released the boot for $40. You had a $460 balance, and you were supposed to pay. You haven’t paid one penny since then. You didn’t call. You did nothing, and I really get upset, but I get upset when people take advantage of my leniency. And you are a classic example, of somebody with total, totally no responsibility at all.
I do have responsibility.
And I’m not happy about it. What happened was my grandma had passed. I beg your pardon? Don’t give me another sad story. I’m not.
It’s not gonna work. My grandmother passed away, when that happened. I didn’t know she was gonna pass away. I had to go travel to Texas, spend money that I didn’t have, I had to pick up my little brother. Now I take care of my brother, I’m only 22 years old, I gotta take care of my little brother, he’s 16. I just got my first apartment, I’m, just, just give me a second, ’cause I don’t really care. (sigh) (murmurs) Get back over here. The other mic. We’ll start again. Why didn’t you call the court? ‘Cause I have, I just had a lot going on. (sigh) (exhausted sigh) I work full time, I work mostly every single day. I only have one day off. You what? I said I work mostly every single day, I don’t have a day, I only have one day off. What–
I don’t have time. You don’t have time to call the court? That’s not, that’s not what’s on my mind. Calling the court is not on my mind. That wasn’t on my mind. I had other things. You have other things to worry about. I had other things to worry about other than court. (clears throat) So, the fact that you were given an extraordinary break by this court, right? (clears throat) And that’s not your concern, right? So, you thought that, I’ll just ignore it. I wasn’t going to ignore it, I knew I had to come face it, so I’m here to face it. I’m facing it. Listen, number one, you’ve had some problems in your life, based on what you just told me. And I’m sympathetic to those. What I’m not sympathetic to is you have a terrible disposition, right? You have no respect for this court, right? And your terribly disrespectful to the court, as well. I understand, you’ve had a problem in your house. Believe me, I am very sympathetic to that, you got a terrible attitude. You need an attitude readjustment, and I’m not, anyone else who had the same problem, with a good attitude, I might take into consideration, but you don’t have a good attitude. And I gave you a big break the last time, but, so accept my sympathy on the, on your grandmother’s passing away. (clears throat) But you’re not getting a break this time. I’m gonna reinstate the previous judgment. You owe $60 on the boot fee, you didn’t pay, so instead you’re gonna pay that boot fee, plus a hundred dollars today, a hundred and sixty dollars to remove the boot. Balance is four hundred and sixty dollars, seventy-five dollars bi-weekly. If it’s not paid, the boot will go back on the car. See the court. Judge, the last one was not booted. Huh?
It was booted before, it’s not booted today. Oh, it’s not?
No. She came in today to–
Oh, she came in voluntarily? Yeah, to square this up. I didn’t see what–
Yeah. Inspector Quinn. Yes, judge? Have her wait. Have her wait. (guitar strumming) (crowd murmuring) Have you calmed down?
Mm-hmm. I was waiting for you to escape. I wanted to, but. (laughing) All right. (clears throat) I–
You don’t understand– Was mistakenly informed that there was a new boot on the car, which upset me a great deal, because I figured you just was, there was– No, I don’t have, there’s no boot on the car. That there was complete and total disregard for the court, and that you were not coming back, but I’ve been informed that you came back voluntarily. All right, so you’re here voluntarily, which means you came back with a lot of money, right? No, I just came back to, I have to pay, but I wanted… To I don’t know.
All right, tell me, why did you come in today? Because everything is falling kind of back into place, so I’m ready to pay, like start paying. You came in because you wanted to get on a payment plan? Yes.
Oh, okay. ‘Cause everything is going back to kind of normal now.
All right, and you don’t want the car to get booted again. Yeah.
All right, so ya come in today to say, listen judge, I may appear to have a bad attitude, but I really don’t. Is that what you wanna tell me? Mm, yeah. As a matter of fact, you have a good attitude, right? Yeah.
Right now, you do. (laughing) (chuckles) Yes.
All right. She’s even smiling.
Yes. Tell me, tell me about your grandmother. Okay so, my grandma raised me all the way till I was 12, and then she moved to Texas. She lived there for like eight years, and then… she actually took my little brother with her, so she was raising my brother, as well. Like in Texas. I moved in with my grandma, two years ago, I only lasted two months, ’cause I didn’t like it. I came back to Rhode Island, I didn’t know my grandma was sick. She was, but she didn’t tell me. So, that’s the reason why she wanted me to live with her, but I didn’t know. And then, in January, she just passed away, and then I had to go to, I had to go to Texas to pick up my little brother, I had to pay for his ticket here. And now I have, I’m raising my brother, and I’m only 22. And I have a daughter, and my brother’s 16, and I just got my first apartment, so… Mm-hmm.
That’s the reason why I came today, ’cause everything is falling back to place, and I didn’t want my car to get boot. So, I wanna fix–
How old is your brother? Sixteen. And who do you live with now? I live by myself now. I just got my first apartment. Are you working? I work full-time. I’m a CNA. I work for Pace Organization. You work where?
Pace Organization. Oh. (exhales) I was pretty tough on you. You know? I think I, I think I misread you, I really do, you know? So, I should probably apologize for yelling at you. I don’t usually go and do that, unless I go and get upset. There was something that triggered this, I thought you got booted again. I thought you were paying no, you completely abdicated your responsibility, and when I saw that, I said, you know, I really tried to give her a break. And she violated that, but you didn’t. Okay? So, we’re gonna see what we can do to help you, okay? What kind of a payment plan do you wanna make? The same one was, it’s okay the same one that I had before. The seventy-five every two weeks, ’cause I get paid every two weeks. Okay, here’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna reinstate the $460 balance, I’m gonna order you to pay $25, every two weeks. Okay. If you do that for, 16 weeks, which means if you make eight payments, okay? I’ll dismiss the balance, Okay. Okay?
Thank you. So, not gonna put too much of a burden on you, okay it’s gonna be, you want to, you could pay $45. Pay $25.
Okay. But, I want you to show some responsibility, that you’re living up to what you were supposed to do. So, instead of 460, and I knocked that down, ’cause it was 935 dollars the last time you came in. I knocked it down to $460. I’m gonna knock it down even further this time, but I want you to show me that you can do it, okay? 25 every two weeks. Okay.
All right, and if you do that after eight payments, I’ll dismiss it.
Okay. And you’re gonna come in to see me then, right? Yes. (laughing) I’ll bring my brother. (laughing) (laughing) You gonna bring your brother, too? Mm-hmm, yeah. Bring him in, I’ll have him up here to help me decide the case.
(laughing) Maybe he can help me on your case, how’s that? Yeah. (chuckles) Okay, I’ll be here on August 12. Okay.
Okay? You gonna come down and see me? Yes.
You gonna bring me some coffee? Maybe. (laughing) No coffee and muffin? I mean, it’s gonna be hot, you want a ice coffee? (laughs) No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I’m not asking you to bring me anything. (laughing) At least we got her to smile, now. All right, Diana, good luck to you, right? We’re rooting for you.
Thank you. All right, have a good day.

    She must have always ignore every situation by showing her crock tears. Zero responsibility totally, that's what feminist head get privilege. Cry every time put her in jail if there's more important things to do to ignore going jail.

  • Jiku singha Post author

    What a drama queen, pathetic child just 22 think 35, but cry like 18 and think everything is a joke.

  • M Cahill Post author

    What's most impressive is the judges constant expression of humanity. There's an obvious concern not only for the law he upholds but twords individuals who display humility. As most will tell you very rarely do find judge's who posses A solomonesqe qualities.

  • Guy Dviri Post author

    this man compassion breaks my heart.

  • Compscilaw Post author

    I've watched nearly every one of these at least twice. This one is my favourite. They should actually separate out the second case so I can watch it over and over.

  • Craig T Post author

    Mad respect to anyone that can make a mistake, go off the rails, then realize what is happening, and own up to being wrong. Most just try to justify their actions, even though it can cause more pain on someone already suffering. God please Bless this young lady, watch over her and her brother and child, send a angel to guide and comfort them, and may they suffer no more. For this I pray to you my Lord thru your Son Jesus Christ, for the kingdom, power and glory are yours forever and ever. Amen
    God Bless

    Wow! It takes a great man to admit his mistake, on TV and YouTube. Too bad I live on the west coast or I would run a red (in a safe place, of course!) in Providence to go in front of this judge. Or maybe I'd just be in the audience. 🙂 God bless you, Judge Caprio!

    What a gentleman the judge was ! Alot for a 21 year old to handle .But she needed to be more respectful to the judge because his is her friend ! And he showed her compassion !

  • mizbootie Post author

    I liked this episode for 2 reasons. It was good to know Judge Caprio goes off when people are disrespectful. I was finding it hard to believe he was compassionate ALL the time. Turns out he does know where the book is and how to throw it at someone. But then, to have Inspector Quinn discreetly correct him (good on ya, Quinn!) and then Judge Caprio says, I was wrong, AND shows even more compassion… that was everything.

  • Ric Lopez Post author

    Judge Caprio you are amazing. You sir are a real disciple of Jesus Christ, with love in your heart for his children. I only wish there were more like you. You were born to do this very thing, Judge. I dont want to be presumption but I'm sure heaven will be filled with people like you.

    So Cool…

  • Joseph Dobrozsi Post author

    Wow I have a new found respect for this judge it's obvious this girl is struggling and she needed help and he apologized for being out of line and judging her wrongfully. I have struggled in the past and have yet to hear from others an apology for the way they treated me wrong when they judged me and well I hope there are more good people like the Judge here who is humble enough to admit they where wrong. I know their out there but their just so few and far between.

    If you're broke and have a car, dont park your cars where you are not supposed to and stop running red lights. I tired of paying for you and your freaking kids for crying out loud. People from R.I. are full of excuses. Cant play that in NYC. Judge Caprio doesnt work here.

    Not the smartest move, how do you come to court to pay some fine with a LV bag even if it's fake?! This woman is from ghana for sure

  • rodney perry Post author

    I never thought I'd see the Judge go off on anyone like that…..but he manned up and apologized. He was under the impression that she had disregarded the court entirely, until Inspector Quinn filled him in on information he didnt have. Great episode!]

  • Isa Reyes Post author

    At least she owns up to her mistake and wants to fix it I admire for her strenght and taking the responsibility of not only taking care of her child but her l6 old brother as well

    you are a good judge and kind and always happy

  • Radha Sen Post author

    If only we had one judge like that in my country….
    Fair and just with a heart full of compassion…
    The most remarkable thing about Judge Caprio is he makes an assessment of the humans first before he judges their petty crimes…
    That's how it should be for justice to be rightly served.
    Long live Judge Caprio.🌹🌹
