I'm Ahamed, and I've worked in document control for a long time. He adores writing and has done freelance and blog work all over the web.
These judgments are amusing, honorable, and frequently touching. And this article explains some interesting judge Caprio cases. Continue to read.
Developing Stopping Skills
This case was brief, but it was very entertaining. Deborah went to court believing she had been ticketed for two red-light offenses. She devised an irrational argument after realizing she had received a third ticket for the identical offense before the other two. Deborah remarked that if she had known about the earliest ticket, she would have purchased it.
She would not have gone through two more lights if she could. "These two things would have happened to me if I had gotten the ticket in April," he continued, "because I would have realized I had to quit." The look of bewilderment on Judge Caprio's face is priceless. He dismantles her reasoning and offers to show the video footage after absorbing her lapse in logic. When Deborah refuses, he laughs one last time before demanding that she pay the fines. "All right, all right, pay the clerk," Caprio responded.
The Clause of Graduation
On a traffic camera, a young driver is recorded running a red light. Despite the fact that Judge Caprio immediately dissects the defendants' claim that the signal was yellow, he nevertheless gets to know the accused's appearance. When the court learns that the defendant is a high school student who wants to go to college, he decides to overlook the infraction on one condition: the kid must complete a college degree.
Caprio's encouragement of the students is touching. Even though things get a little out of hand when the student claims to know the judge's grandson, Caprio's good nature shines through in this situation.
The Best Policy is to Be Honest.
After asking a few questions, Judge Caprio invites the man's family to the front of the courtroom, where he was charged with traveling 10 miles per hour over the 25 miles per hour speed limit. 'Well, I didn't feel like we were driving too far over the limit, not too far,' her mother explained.
Metallic, the defendant's son, is then asked to say whether his father is guilty or innocent. What do you think if Menelik doesn't hesitate to do the right thing and offers the most accurate verdict, guilty or not guilty? His son admitted to being guilty. Everyone bursts out laughing as the child accuses his father. Judge Caprio, fortunately for the prisoner, decides to dismiss the speeding charge. He also praises both men for their honesty at the conclusion of the case. "Just be careful down there," the judge said, "and you have a very honest young man as well."
Allow Me To Make a Stronger Case For You
Another driver was ticketed for barely making it past a red light. A box truck, she claimed, was blocking her view of the signal changing. According to Leonardo DiCaprio, "Tonight was unmistakably red. That isn't exactly your point. I'll demonstrate it to you once again." It's a good thing that one isn't going anywhere. Let's take another look at it.
Judge Caprio suddenly checked the video footage and promptly dismissed her claim. He does, however, provide her with a better defense based on traffic law. Finally, as Caprio puts it, "Normally, we take around two-tenths of a second. He was three-tenths of a second behind. I increased the three tenths by a factor of three "However, his offer appears to have gone over the defendant's head, and she continues to try to win the case using her original reasoning.
Despite the fact that Caprio criticizes her for not listening, he rejects the accusation. Given that the defendant's case may have cost him $85, this motorist was fortunate that the judge had a strong defense. The case is dismissed based on three-tenths of a second.
Ticket that is ridiculously close
On Cushing Street, one second, no parking, eight to ten correct. Were you there? This case will be therapeutic for everyone who has ever received a parking penalty for arriving a little too early. Sarah arrived at his house, which did not allow parking until 10:00 a.m. A ticket was issued for her car at 9:59 and fifty-eight seconds after she parked at 9:58.
Carpio makes it clear right away that he finds this vilification absurd. This is the city, or this is inspector Quinn, who she has wronged, but before dismissing the case, he mocks Sarah's bad choices and threatens her with jail time for the little violation. "Inspector Quinn, what does justice demand in this case?" the Carpio court asked. This is a prison. Caprio has Sarah and the rest of the courtroom in stitches by the time she leaves. "I think 959 is close enough to ten matters dismissed," Carpio concludes.
Dismissed Right Away
Jose Barrientos, wearing a helmet, appears in court to contest a parking violation. Barrientos explains that his son was bringing him up from the hospital following recent brain surgery, but they were given a parking violation when traffic police noticed that he had parked up next to a fire hydrant. Judge Caprio dismisses the case without hesitation after hearing the reason. What makes this decision even more touching is that the judge takes a moment to inquire about Jose's well-being. In this brief exchange, Caprio demonstrates that he genuinely cares about the people that visit his courtroom.
That's why I'm wearing a helmet, according to Caprio, so perhaps I'll be fine by October. Caprio: All right, we're pulling for you. Best wishes.
Breakfast Is Your Sentence
After hearing her mother's argument, a young girl named Denise is called to the stand to judge her mother's case. Jenice is tasked by Caprio with deciding whether her mother will face a fine or will be allowed off the hook. So you've decided to charge $50. When the court asks if the girl has had breakfast after she chose to charge her mother $50, the girl shakes her head.
If her mother takes her out to lunch, the court says the matter will be dismissed. So, let's say I strike a deal with your mother. When you leave, she buys you breakfast. I'm going to dismiss them.
There Are Way Too Many Lights
To win, you don't always need a complex defense. In one case, a man is accused of running a red light. He acknowledges culpability and says he was perplexed because the crossroads where he turned in our area had crazy lights. Rather than dismissing the man's point, I was perplexed. When Caprio examines it more closely, he agrees that there are too many lights, and he criticizes the traffic controllers in charge of that crossing.
Caprio dismisses the case after ensuring that the defendant understands the issue. This decision demonstrates that Caprio is attentive to arguments, even if he prefers to frame them differently.
A Veteran's Message
As soon as Judge Caprio reads the charges for a parking ticket, the defendant pleads guilty and asks to explain. He explains that he is a veteran who parked on the sidewalk of a VA hospital while receiving medical treatment. He goes on to say that parking is a constant problem there and asks the judge to consider a lighter sentence for himself and other veterans who receive care nearby.
"Other veterans and I believe the fine is excessively hefty for a first-time crime in that area," he said. Caprio reacts with a moving statement in which he thanks soldiers for their service. 'Whether it's in battle, active service in the flower in the nation, or here, it makes no difference, they've sacrificed a period of time of their wife to serve this country,' Caprio added. He concludes by dismissing the lawsuit, as well as any fees owed. Finally said Caprio ' Disposing in this case what I'm going to say to you sir is thank you for your service in the matter is dismissed'.
A Bereaved Mother
Andrea Rogers was filled with emotion when she entered the Cap Rios courthouse with tickets costing up to $400 in the middle of the proceedings. Andrea tells Elevation One that she went to Social Security because her check had been cut after her son died last year. Rodgers claims she amassed the tickets while evicted and caring for her son's affairs after his death.
When Leonardo DiCaprio learns about the story, he lowers her penalty to $50. When Andrea admits that would leave her with only $5, he immediately reverses his decision and dismisses all of her tickets. I'm not going to just leave you with $5. I'm not going anywhere. Everything is going to be thrown out.
Caprio's extraordinary act of compassion drew widespread notice and demonstrated how a little kindness can make a great difference in someone's life.
