Judge Sentences Woman to Walk 30 Miles for Not Paying Cab Fare

30 days in prison or walk 30 miles in 48 hours? We’ll take 30 miles for $400, Alex!
An Ohio judge sentenced Victoria Bascom to walk 30 miles in consequence of failure to pay her cab fare.
She argues that because she wasn’t the last person in the cab, she assumed the remaining passengers would cover the cost. That wasn’t the case.

Judge Cicconeti asked her what she would have done if she didn’t have a cab. She responded, “Walk.” He said that he thinks it’s only appropriate that she walks the 30 miles, then.
The court will record her mileage progress with a GPS. Furthermore she has to serve three days of community service AND still pay the cab the fare that she owed.

Victoria’s sentence isn’t the first odd punishment. Judge Cicconetti once sentenced a woman to mace herself because she maced someone in a Burger King. He has absolutely no problem with his decisions. He told an Ohio news station that he would never do anything illegal. He more so wants to do what he thinks will prevent a person from coming back into the courts again.
