Guilford County District Court judge Mark Cummings made defendant Joshua Hill a poster boy for domestic violence, ordering him to stand in front of the county courthouse in High Point for seven days holding a sign as part of his punishment. The judge ordered Hill to hold the sign after Hill admitted to violating his probation last week. In 2014, Hill pleaded guilty to assault on a female and criminal trespassing.
