Painesville Municipal Court Judge Michael Cicconetti, well-known for his unusual sentencings, is at it again.
First-time DUI offender Jonathan Tarase, 27 was in court Tuesday morning with the judge, when he was sentenced to 65 days in jail. Cicconetti suspended 60 of the days and Tarase doesn't have to serve his 5 days in jail until April.
But the other part of his sentence between now and then, is that Tarase is also required to be on-call with the Lake County Coroner's Office and hospitals.
Cicconetti is requiring he view the bodies of at least two fatal accident victims before he goes to jail.
In the past, Cicconetti has received both criticism and praise for his unusual sentencings, usually meant to teach the offenders a lesson as opposed to locking them up.
