SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio, April 11 (UPI) -- An Ohio judge came up with a unique punishment for a 62-year-old man who was found guilty of harassing his neighbors over the course of a 15-year feud.

As a punishment, Edmond Aviv will be forced to stand outside on Sunday for five hours with a sign that reads: "I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in."

South Euclid Municipal Court Judge Gayle Williams-Byers came up with the sentence.

In addition to the sign, Aviv was also sentenced to 15 days in jail, seven months on probation, 100 hours of community service, anger management classes and personal counseling.

Aviv allegedly did some awful things to his neighbors, the Prughs, who adopted two black children with developmental disabilities.

“He would do things like shine a spotlight at their house at three in the morning so the family couldn’t sleep. Then he would play loud music. He also shoveled dog feces onto the car of the one son who is a caretaker to the disabled children. He did this every day,” Williams-Byers told Fox 8.

Aviv also allegedly called one of the Prughs a "monkey momma.”

“I believe I fashioned a sentence that responds to him, to his behavior, to his ideology, to what he thought of his neighbors and their now blended family,” Williams-Byers said.
