Sex offender Leroy Schad of Kansas is under a court order to keep large signs on his car that read, "Sex Offender In This Car." He has a similar sign on his house.

The 72-year-old, who has lived in the town since 1971, was originally charged with four counts of taking indecent liberties with a 9-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy in 2005.

In March last year, he was allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child, and the original charges were dismissed.

District Judge Ron Svaty ordered him to position the signs as part of his punishment as well as house arrest and five years probation.

Schad is now appealing the order which forced him to post the signs a few months ago.

He said: "I know that I deserve something for that, but I don't think I deserve what I got."
