SOUTH EUCLID, OH (WOIO) -

After harassing and intimidating his neighbor, Sandra Prugh, and her adopted, disabled African-American children, an Ohio man has been handed down an interesting sentence.

Edmond Aviv, 62, was accused of bedeviling his neighbor and her family for more than 10 years.

In March Aviv pled no contest to fourth degree disorderly conduct.  He was found guilty.

South Euclid Municipal Judge Court Judge Gayle Williams-Byers ordered Aviv to tote a sign which reads "I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in."

Judge Williams-Byers instructed Aviv to tote the sign, which must be "large enough for a normal person to see the sign from 25 feet away" on the heavily traveled intersection of Trebisky and Monticello on Sunday, April 13.

The judge also sentenced Aviv to 15 days in jail, seven months' probation, 100 hours of community service, anger management classes and mental-health counseling.

Aviv was also ordered to publish a letter of apology to Prugh in a local newspaper.

Aviv will be holding his sign for the public to see until 2 p.m. on Sunday at the corner of Trebisky Road and Monticello Boulevard in South Euclid.
