T-shirt punishment for these offenders

WAUSEON, Ohio (AP) - September 9, 2009

He's ordering neon green T-shirts for some offenders doing community service.

Those shirts say "I'm a thief."

Judge Jeff Robinson in Fulton County says that very public punishment can act as a deterrent.

The Toledo Blade reports he's mostly ordered the shirts for convicted shoplifters.

At least one defendant wanted to pay a stiffer fine instead.
