In northwest Indiana, a man failed to show up for jury duty. And he was forced to pay.The punishment - embarrassment.

A judge sentenced Michael Leibengood to hold a sign that reads "I failed to appear for jury duty."

Potential jurors showing up at the Lake County Criminal Courts Building Monday got the message loud and clear of what might happen if they, too, failed to perform their civic duty.
