An Ohio man ordered to spend five hours on a street corner with a sign declaring he is a bully has branded his sentence unfair, and said the judge who gave it to him has ruined his life.
The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that 62-year-old Edmond Aviv for the most part ignored honking horns and people who stopped to talk to him in the town of South Euclid.
But Aviv was not happy with his punishment, saying: "The judge destroyed me," and "This isn't fair at all."
The judge ordered that the sign should read: "I AM A BULLY."
Aviv had pleaded no contest to a misdemeanour disorderly conduct charge after a neighbour said he had bullied her and her disabled children for the past 15 years.
A court probation officer monitored Aviv during his punishment.
