Tuguno reiterates his admiration

During their conversation, Tuguno reiterated his admiration for the judge and further noted that he tried to contact him on several occasions without success.

Impressed and honoured by the sincere admiration and the gifts offered, Caprio suggested that the goats be given to local families who could not afford to feed themselves, to which Tuguno agreed.

“I have had a lot of experiences in life but I have never been offered a goat. It is of great importance because my ancestors were goat herders," Caprio said.

Caprio is an American lawyer and politician whose judicial work is televised in the TV show titled Caught in Providence.

The 82-year-old judge, known for his straightforwardness, compassion, and humour, is so popular, explaining why his YouTube channel has over 2.04 million subscribers.

"I may be adding just a little bit more understanding toward the United States system of government and how it works, that we are a decent peace-loving people, and not how we're being portrayed in other parts of the world," Caprio once said.

Rulings going viral

The judge has had numerous rulings go viral and has amassed nearly two billion views on YouTube.

Recently, how he compassionately handled a 96-year-old man warmed people's hearts.

Victor Coella came before Caprio's court after being ticketed for speeding in a school zone, and he said he was not going to pay the fine but would instead appear in court.

Coella defended himself, saying, "I don't drive that fast, Judge. I'm 96-years-old and I drive slowly, and I only drive when I have to."

The elderly man then explained that he was going to the blood work for his 63-year-old son, who was handicapped.

"Yeah, I take him for blood work every two weeks because he's got cancer," he said.

When Frank heard this, he felt sorry for him. So he went ahead to tell the old man that he was amazed that he still takes care of his child even in his old age.

The judge said he was a very good man and dismissed his case.
