Judge orders Ohio man to hold "I Am a Bully" sign

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio (WKOW) -- An Ohio man has been ordered by a judge to stand at a corner for five hours and hold a sign saying that he is a bully.

Mike Prugh says his neighbor, 62-year-old Edmond Aviv, harassed his family, especially his adopted African-American siblings with disabilities.

Aviv appeared in court many times throughout the years, and that's when Judge Gayle Williams-Byers said enough is enough.  She sentenced Aviv to 15 days in jail and ordered him to make a sign saying he was a bully and stand at a street corner over the weekend.

Prugh hopes this punishment will stop the harassment.

According to Northeast Ohio Media Group, Aviv ignored honking horns and people who stopped to talk with him on Sunday.  Aviv is not happy with the punishment.  He says, "The judge destroyed me" and "This isn't fair at all."
