However, it wasn’t until the year 2000 that the cameras began rolling for Caught in Providence, and Caprio started to become more widely known. The show first aired on local access television in Providence, but it soon moved to ABC6-WLNE.
The show features real people and real court cases. And, although some may consider him the star of the show, Caprio sees nothing frivolous about his role. “I’m not here on the court to be an entertainer,” he has said in the past. “My primary role is to do justice.”
Still, that hasn’t stopped YouTube clips of some of Caught in Providence’s cases from going viral. And one such episode from 2017 particularly caught the public’s attention. It featured a woman who had turned up for court with her two daughters in tow.
