Judge to supervise Ohio woman holding 'idiot' sign

CLEVELAND (AP) — A Cleveland judge who sentenced a woman to hold an embarrassing sign in public plans to personally supervise the second day of the punishment after being unsatisfied with the woman's demeanor the first day.

Shena Hardin was caught driving on a sidewalk to pass a school bus unloading children in September.

Judge Pinkey Carr had ordered her to spend part of two mornings holding a sign that says, "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."

Hardin puffed on a cigarette, wore headphones and ignored passers-by while standing with the sign on a street corner Tuesday. The judge tells WKYC-TV she feels Hardin wasn't sufficiently holding up the sign and was "missing the point."

The judge plans to supervise Hardin on Wednesday.
