    I was thinking the same thing. However the kid is 18. He agreed to it.

    Seems like a win/win. The store got free labor; the kid learned a lesson; and a lawyer for the kid would have cost his parents more than six hours of work.

    Judge orders thief to walk streets wearing confession sign for SIX years - Odds & Tidbits - People Forum

    Judge orders thief to walk streets wearing confession sign for SIX years
    A man who stole money from victims of crime has been ordered to stand on a busy city street with a sign saying he is a thief - every weekend for the next six years.


    Daniel Mireles has been walking back and forth on Westheimer in Houston - in front of the Galleria shopping centre with a sign saying he is a thief.


    In large capital letters, his sign reads: 'I am a thief. I stole $250,000 from the Harris County crime victim's fund. Daniel Mireles

    he also has to have a sign on his house :thup:

    Who was the judge in Tennessee that made the drunk driver carry a nice big framed photo of his victim everywhere he went? Anyone remember? It was a few years back.

    I love alternative sentencing.

    I do too. And think of the $$ saved by doing these kind of things.

    It should be done more often imo.
