public humiliation in this case might work. Besides being the laughing stock with the sandwich board stating he's a liar and a fraud, he will also
become known for his crime and, therefore, he will no longer be able to do what he was doing without major risk of being spotted as "that moron with
the sandwich board"
I was once working in a teen drug and alcohol abuse facility (ripping up the concrete floor while in college - me and two older dudes who broke every
rule that facility had while we were there). There was always one or two kids wearing signs that said things like "I got caught sneaking a joint"
or "I stole so I could get high"
This was an internal punishment that the home seemed to think would work. The kids we spoke too generally said that the risk of being caught and
wearing that sign in front of your friends was a major factor in their not doing things. Not because they didn't want everyone to know they were
doing drugs, or drinking etc. Rather, they didn't want anyone to know they were dumb enough to get caught.
