Judge Sentences Man To Wear “I Was Being An Idiot” Sign

CLEVELAND (March 6, 2013)—Cleveland Judge Pinkey Carr, who earlier ordered a woman to wear an "idiot" sign in public for driving around a school bus, is now calling for the public shaming of a man convicted of threatening police officers.

In addition to sentencing Richard Dameron, 58, to 90 days in jail, Carr ordered the man to stand in front of a district police station with a sign when he gets out.

Media outlets reported that Dameron will 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 was convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls.

Carr said sometimes she has to get creative to get through to people.
