'I sneak boys in at 3am and disrespect my parents': Girl, 15, forced to stand by side of the road with humiliating sign
However, Jasmine also admitted that the unorthodox discipline had led her to rethink her behaviour - and her parents have warned her that if she does not mend her ways, they will consider making her hold a sign outside her own school, or even shave her head.
While most passing motorists seemed to approve of Jasmine's fate, one stopped to make sure she was OK, saying: 'The way she looks right now, I don't want her to hurt herself.'
Police investigated the incident, but found no evidence that Mike and Melinda were doing anything illegal.
Mike added that while the punishment might seem brutal, it was motivated by compassion.
'This is all about love,' he told WESH. 'I took my day off of work. I missed out on $300 or $400 today to do this. You know what I mean, to come and do this. I love this kid.'
He added that Jasmine needed to be straightened out before getting into more serious trouble, saying: 'This is the beginning of what she's doing to eventually wind up in prison.'
The teenager unsurprisingly took a different view of her punishment, insisting: 'That's not love.'
