An Ohio woman sentenced to stand at the curb with an embarrassing sign for driving on the sidewalk past a stopped school bus has served out the second half of her two-hour punishment.

But the judge that gave her the sentence doesn't feel the woman gets the point of her punishment.

Judge Pinky Carr, unhappy that Shena Hardin was smoking and texting during Tuesday's hour, had planned to personally supervise the defendant Wednesday.

But Judge Carr sent word that she had changed her mind. Court spokesman Ed Ferenc says Carr gave no reason.

The judge had ordered Hardin to stand with a sign reading, "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."

Hardin wore headphones and ignored passers-by Tuesday. The judge felt Hardin wasn't sufficiently holding up the sign and was "missing the point."
