LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE(CBS) — A 17-year-old boy was forced to stand on a street corner Wednesday, holding a sign that read, “My name is Justin. I am a thief.”

The La Cañada Sun reports the boy’s mother was punishing him for stealing a skateboard at school.

La Cañada High School officials reportedly told the mother of the incident, but did not involve police.

The boy, identified only as Justin, told the Sun, “It’s my fifteen minutes of shame.”

Justin’s mother supervised from a nearby shopping center as he held the sign for 15 minutes near the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Angeles Crest Highway.
