Larry Bass to walk outside Pike County Courthouse

PETERSBURG, Ind. - A convicted sex offender who bought alcohol for a minor will admit his crime in a very public way Friday.

Larry Bass, 27, of Pike County in southern Indiana, was convicted of child molestation in 2010 and was sentenced to five years.

But after his release from prison, he was arrested for buying vodka for a 14-year-old.

As part of his punishment, Bass will have to walk Friday outside of the Pike County Courthouse wearing a sandwich-style fluorescent sign reading, "Registered Sex Offender Who Bought Alcohol for Kids."

Bass will have to carry the sign for an hour.
