Man ordered to hold sign that says 'I am a bully'


SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio (AP) -- A judge near Cleveland has ordered a man convicted of harassing a neighbor to stand on a street corner with a sign that says "I am a bully."

The judge says 62-year-old Edmond Aviv of South Euclid (YOO'-klehd) must stand with the sign for five hours on Sunday.

Court records say Aviv has feuded with his neighbor for the last 15 years. He recently pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.

The Plain Dealer newspaper ( ) in Cleveland reports that court and police records say Aviv has called his neighbor a slur and harassed her disabled children over the years.

His attorney declined to comment.

A municipal court judge also ordered the man to serve 15 days in jail and undergo anger management classes and counseling.
