An Ohio man had to sit on a street corner with a sign declaring he is a bully as part of his sentence for harassing a neighbour and her disabled children.

A judge ordered 62-year-old Edmond Aviv to display the sign for five hours.

The sign says: "I am a bully. I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in."

It was reported that Aviv arrived at the street corner just before 9am on Sunday, placing the hand-lettered sign next to him as he sat in a chair.

Court records show Aviv pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge.
