Fla. Judge Orders Woman to Wear Sign Outside Police Station

Fla. Judge Orders Woman to Wear Sign Outside Police Station

January 13, 2010

ORLANDO, Fla. — An Orlando police officer wanted a unique punishment for the 24-year-old Alabama woman who pushed her palm to his face.

Something to bring awareness to the problem. And what better way than advertising?

Alexandra Espinosa-Amaya wore a sign reading “I battered a police officer. I was wrong. I apologize.” for four hours Tuesday outside the police station.

It was part of a plea agreement on simple battery and resisting an officer without violence charges. The judge also ordered an apology letter, anger management counseling, 50 hours of community service and two years’ probation.

Espinosa-Amaya, a student at Jacksonville State University in Alabama, was arrested after clashing with bouncers when she got thrown out of an Orlando bar in 2008.

    Haha, We have a judge in the area that makes rulings like this all the time, sentenced paint balling drive-byers to paintball their own car, a woman charged with animal neglect to spend a night outside, I really enjoy reading about creative sentencing.

    Two thumbs up to this novel way to make a defendant repent their misdeeds in a very public way. A very public attitude adjustment.

    Great call by the Judge. I wish they posted a picture of her in the paper.
