CLEVELAND (AP) — The same Cleveland judge who made a woman wear an "idiot" sign in public for driving around a school bus is calling for the public shaming of a man convicted of threatening police officers.

In addition to sentencing 58-year-old Richard Dameron to 90 days in jail for threatening officers in 911 calls, Cleveland Judge Pinkey Carr ordered him to stand in front of a district police station with a sign when he gets out.

Media outlets reported that he'll have to stand for three hours a day for a week in June with a sign apologizing to officers, noting that "I was being an idiot and it will never happen again."

Carr says that sometimes she has to get creative to get through to people.
