BELLE, MO (KMOV.com) – A judge in Belle, Missouri is giving residents a chance to choose public humiliation instead of jail time.

The new policy allows offenders to spend two hours standing in the “Corner of Shame” downtown while holding a sign describing their offense.

Offenders are still required to pay their fines, but are able to avoid a contempt charge.
