Ohio judge again forces 'idiot' sign on defendant
The Associated Press
In addition to sentencing 58-year-old Richard Dameron to 90 days in jail, Cleveland Judge Pinkey Carr ordered him to stand in front of a district police station with a sign when he gets out. Media outlets report that he'll have to stand for three hours a day for a week in June with a sign apologizing to officers. The sign will also say, "I was being an idiot and it will never happen again."
Dameron is convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls.
Carr says that sometimes she has to get creative to get through to people.
