Judge Orders Man to Wear Massive Sign Reading ‘I am a thief’

Greg Davenport, of Liberty Township, Ohio, pleaded no contest to a theft charge after attempting to steal a 52-inch television from a Wal-Mart in December.

The judge gave him a choice: spend 30 days in prison or wear a large sign outside the supermarket for eight hours a day over ten days of his choosing.

‘Maybe you can get to their inner side,’ said police chief Richard Tisone.

‘Maybe they’re a little embarrassed by the fact they have to hold a sign up, so it might affect some of these individuals, so I’m all for it.’

Davenport, 44, said wearing a sign is better than sitting a jail cell, and he isn’t embarrassed anyway.

‘I stole, I got punished. That’s it,’ he told FOX News.
