The Drunk Driver

The Idiot Sign Holder
Shena Hardin was told by the judge that she would have to spend two days holding a sign stating, “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.” This sentence was given to hopefully remind other drivers as well as Hardin to have patience for students getting off school buses.
The Hair Cutter
Kaytlen Lopan’s 13-year-old daughter was convicted of cutting the hair off of a 3-year-old child at a local McDonald’s. Initially her daughter was ordered to spend 30 days in the detention center plus 276 hours of community service. However, the sentence would be reduced if the mother cut her daughter’s ponytail off, which she did without hesitation.
The Church Goer
Tyler Alred entered a plea of guilty for manslaughter after crashing his pickup truck and killing a friend. He was sentenced to a list of conditions over the next 10 years in order to stay out of jail. This included attending church regularly for the next ten years.
