(CBS/AP) CLEVELAND - Shena Hardin, the woman caught on
camera driving on a sidewalk to pass a stopped school bus, completed the second
half of her sentence Wednesday of having to stand at a curb holding a sign warning
people about idiots.
Judge Pinkey Carr was unhappy that Hardin, 32, was smoking and texting during Tuesday's punishment and planned to personally supervise the defendant on Wednesday. But Carr later said sent word that she changed her mind. She gave no reason why.
Carr ordered Hardin to stand with a sign reading, "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."
Hardin wore headphones and ignored passers-by Tuesday. The judge told WKYC-TV she felt Hardin wasn't sufficiently holding up the sign and was "missing the point."
