A driver who served time in jail for killing a man in a drunk-driving accident in Harris County will now have to advertise his crime by wearing a sign in public.
Harris County Court-at-Law Judge Michael R. Fields has ordered Michael Giacona, 39, to wear the sign, which states “I killed Aaron Coy Pennywell while driving drunk,” during four consecutive Saturdays as part of his two-year probated sentence.
The judge also ordered Giacona to wear an alcohol monitoring device on his ankle, and to prominently display a framed photograph of the victim’s destroyed car in his living room.
