Let the punishment fit...

Thinking outside the box, or the wheel:
Fed up with all of the cars parked along the street in her quiet neighborhood, an 89-year-old grandmother in Germany started slashing their tires. Altogether some 50 tires were vandalized before a neighbor spotted and reported the nefarious nana. The granny, Heidi Kohl, eventually confessed and was fined, but the story doesn't end there.

When she told authorities she wouldn't be able to pay, they decided to have her work off her debt. They instead sentenced her to hard time knitting sweaters for her victims... she has since moved to a retirement home.
As the article mentions, if the people are happy, who are we to question the judgment of the authorities? It certainly is original.

And she'll have plenty of time to pay her fee.
