A judge in Coshocton (I think Hostetler) has been doing this for years. It's a great idea for minor crimes as hopefully the embarrassment will deter the criminal from being a repeat offender.

I'm sure. If that was the case I think they would have fought it a little harder.

So, they decided to use them anyway, Alisha? Nice upstanding people. Are you related to them?

The story has seven sentences. How could you not read "they swiped a gift card that the girl set on a shelf while a Walmart employee helped her"?

I applaud the prosecutor, but they didn't really seem that ashamed. A certain type just has no clue of social correctness. They could have been put to work raking leaves from the streets.

I read up on this..Everyone is writing the same stupid thing...Read the interviews that the women gave. Lets just start giving everyone signs for adultery, d.u.i.s, ect..It would never stop. Everyone would be out on the street holding a sign.
