The man accused of bullying his neighbor for the past 15 years is standing at an intersection here with a sign that says he bullied disabled children following a judge’s order.
Edmond Aviv, 62, started serving part of his court sentence at 9 a.m. on Sunday.
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.
