(funky upbeat music) Victor Cueva. You can sit down, sir. Thank you. Good morning, sir. Good morning, Judge. Mr. Cueva, you are charged with a school zone violation. Beg your pardon? You are charged with a school zone violation. Which means that you were exceeding the speed limit in a school zone. I don’t drive that fast, Judge. I’m 96 years old, and I drive slowly, and I only drive when I have to. I was going to the blood work for my boy. He’s handicapped. You were taking your son to the doctor’s office? Yeah, I take him for blood work. Mm-hm. Every two weeks, ’cause he’s got cancer. You are a good man. You are a good man. You really are what America is all about. Here you are in your 90s, and you’re still taking care of your family. That’s just a wonderful thing for you. Well, how old is your son? 63. Yeah. Daddy’s still taking of him, right? I only drive when I have to. You see that young man over there? That’s my son. Now, he’s looking at me saying, “Dad, when you’re in your 90s, “you’re gonna be driving me around.” (courtroom laughs) You’re setting a bad example for my kid. No. You’re putting a lot of pressure on me. (laughing) Listen, sir. I wish you all the best. I wish the best for your son. And I wish you good health. And your case is dismissed. Good luck to you and God bless you. Thank you. Savannah Lospien. Losepien. Okay, you have…
It’s an odd last name. We have two people here for one parking ticket. I just brought my mom with me, but, it’s my parking ticket. This is your mom? Yeah. You’re still taking care of her? Unfortunately, yes. No, what you do mean unfortunately? (laughing)
Well, I live in her house. I live with her, so. You better get used to it. See the gentleman, 91, what was he 91 years old? Uh, yeah.
96, your honor. David was just telling me about him, 96. 96 years old. I know. I know. That’ll be me. You’re gonna be driving her around at 96 years. No. (laughing) Let’s hope not. If I have to, I would. Are you both missing work today? Do you work? I’m going to work after here, she’s not working right now. All right, so you’re missing work, she’s not working, she’s taking overtime for a $30 ticket. So this better be a good story. I will tell you what happened. My boyfriend had court– Oh, oh. So he had asked me to show up for him, to be there, to bring him home and stuff. So, where I parked, it was on Brown Street, which it says here on my ticket. It was for the Superior Court and there was no sign that said no parking or anything like that, it was like a residential street. I just parked in front of someone’s house, because I figured I wasn’t gonna be in court that long. Do you like her boyfriend? No. You don’t like him? (courtroom laughing) Not at all. Never did and never will. What do you think I should do about that? Leave him. (laughing) Long story. Long story. I think I asked a very sensitive question. Oh yeah. I know she doesn’t like my boyfriend, but– Oh I was gonna ask you, I was gonna ask if she knows that you don’t like her boyfriend. Oh she knows.
I know. I know she doesn’t. But I feel as though I’m old enough to pick who I date. But it is awkward when your mother doesn’t like your boyfriend, because it’s not so enjoyable, I guess. How long have you been going with this guy? It’ll be two years June 8th. Oh, two years. Wanna say anything else? He was living with us, I just threw him out yesterday. Oh. Never wanna see him again. Never. He will never live with us again. He is no good. I’m gonna stop right here. (laughing) I coulda killed him, I’ll be honest with you. I coulda killed him, but I kept saying if I go to jail, she’ll be left alone. Imagine that. She loves you so much that she won’t kill him. Yeah, I know she means well, so I’m not gonna argue with her, but. I don’t know, I don’t know anything about what’s going on, but as a general rule, as a general rule, I think you should listen to your parents. As a general rule. Mm-hm. My son’s in the back now, right? Are you looking for a new boyfriend? He looks just like you. Why don’t you wave to him? Give him a wave. (laughing) This could be the beginning of something big. (laughing) All right, well, you’re a good sport. And you’re right, you’re on Brown Street, it’s up on the east side, near the Superior Court, next to Brown University. It’s a hill. And there’s one parking sign at the bottom of the hill. There’s not proper notice. There should be three signs on that street, there’s only one. And most people would not see that sign. Oh I didn’t see it. Yeah, I’m sure you didn’t. All right, the matter is dismissed. Good luck to both of you. Thank you very much.
Thank you. Good luck. If you were paying attention, a very important question was asked by Savannah regarding her mother’s profound disdain for her boyfriend. What do you think I should do about that? What should you do about that? Well let’s review the facts, and Savannah, please let me know if I get any of them wrong. The reason you got the ticket is because your boyfriend wanted you to pick him up at Superior Court. I’m going out on a limb here and assuming that he wasn’t at court in a professional capacity, such as a trial lawyer, right? Thought so. And despite you selflessly showing up for him, he wouldn’t come to court with you today? Hmm. Now adding to that insult, your mother threw him out of her house and says she wanted to kill him. I suspect she had good reason, Savannah. Judge Caprio was right, it’s always a good idea to listen to your parents. In this case, it might be a great idea. Totally your call. But you asked our opinion, and now you have it. Good luck. Come on, how cool was that? If you’d like to see more cases like this one, tune in to Caught In Providence every weekday. Excuse me?
