The clip was filmed on US TV show ‘Caught In Providence’, in which real people have their cases heard in Providence Municipal Court in Rhode Island.
The little boy who was sat on the judge’s lap was told: “I have a situation where your dad is charged with parking on a street up on the east side.
“I have three choices: I can fine him $90, I can charge him $30 or I can do nothing.
“What do you think I should do?”
The little boy pondered for a few seconds then said: “$30.”
Well, that told him.
