FL Teen Jailed For Flipping Off Judge [VIDEO]

Penelope Soto

Sometimes people – like this Florida teen – just need to learn their lessons the hard way.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has her story:

Audio clip:

Eighteen-year-old Penelope Soto giggling her way though a hearing after being arrested for possessing Xanax bars.

(Judge Rodriguez-Chomat) “It’s not a joke, you know.  We’re not in a club now.”

Bond initially set at $5,000.

(Judge Rodriguez-Chomat // Soto) “Bye, bye.” // “Adios!”

Not the attitude the judge was expecting, though.

(Judge Rodriguez-Chomat) “Come back, ma’am.  Come back.”

Miami Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat.

(Judge Rodriguez-Chomat // Soto) “Count One will be $10,000.” // “Are you serious?” // “I am serious.  Adios!”

At this point, Soto flips the judge the bird and has a few choice words.

(Judge Rodriguez-Chomat // Soto) “Did you say ((expletive)) me?  Did you say that?” // “Yes, sir!”

Soto’s punishment:

(Judge Rodriguez-Chomat) “Thirty days in the county jail.”

…For criminal contempt.  And after she serves that, she’ll face the same judge, again.
