Judge Gives Great Sentence To Teen Who Refused To Pay Cab Driver

Recently, 18-year-old Victoria Bascom, took a 30-mile cab ride from Cleveland to Painesville, Ohio, and then refused to pay the fare. As a result, Judge Michael Cicconetti, came up with a creative sentence of requiring her to walk 30 miles around a fairground--the same number of miles that she rode. A GPS will be used to monitor her movement during the next 48 hours. Bascom was also ordered to do three days of community services and pay United Cab $100 in restitution. Cicconetti has often administered creative punishments after sentences that include a drunk driver to look at car crash victims in the morgue or a man who called a police officer a 'pig' to stand with a sign next to a swine.

Bascom pleaded that she and a friend had left the cab while two other passengers were still inside. Cicconetti initially began his sentencing remarks by saying that Bascom would have to spend 30 days in jail, which left her visibly distressed. In another case, he gave Diamond Gaston, 20, the option of going to jail or being 'pepper sprayed' after she maced an unidentified man at a Burger King.

Gaston chose to be pepper sprayed, yet the man who "got his revenge" on her only used water. Thinking that it would be pepper spray seemed to be painful enough.
