    BEDFORD, Pa. - In exchange for no jail time, a woman and her adult daughter have agreed to stand outside a Pennsylvania courthouse holding signs saying they stole a gift card from a 9-year-old girl on her birthday.
    Fifty-six-year-old Evelyn Border and 35-year-old Tina Griekspoor stood outside the court for 4 1/2 hours Tuesday. They held signs that read: "I stole from a 9-year-old girl on her birthday! Don't steal or this could happen to you!"
    Because the women agreed to hold the signs, Bedford County District Attorney Bill Higgins says he'll ask for probation instead of jail when they plead guilty to the theft.


    Higgins says they swiped a gift card that the girl set on a shelf while a Walmart employee helped her.
    The girl's mother planned to drive by the courthouse to teach her daughter the importance of obeying the law.

    4 1/2 hours seems like chump time. 4 1/2 months of sign holding seems better ... or jail.

    Yep 5 months or the the slammer! If I were that judge they would have been filing tax forms that read "sign holder full time" for the next 5 years.
