Ohio Men Find Judge's Sentence a Real Drag

October 27, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Two Ohio men who threw beer bottles at a woman in a car paid the price: They had to parade through the center of their hometown dressed as women.

Jason Householder, 23, and John Stockum, 21, walked around downtown Coshocton, population 12,000, for an hour wearing dresses, wigs and makeup.

Coshocton County Municipal Judge David Hostetler passed the sentence Oct. 18, telling the men they could either comply with his order or go to jail for 60 days after being convicted of criminal damage. He also fined them $250 each.

Hostetler, who often imposes unorthodox sentences, says he does so because of crowding in the Coshocton County Jail.
