MIAMI (AP) - A Miami woman was jailed on contempt charges after flipping off a judge during a drug possession hearing.
Miami television station NBC 6 (http://bit.ly/WNQ60c ) reports 18-year-old Penelope Soto laughed Monday when Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat asked how much her jewelry was worth as he inquired about her financial assets.
The judge told Soto "we're not in a club, be serious about it." Soto said she was being serious.
He set Soto's bond at $5,000 and said, "bye-bye." Soto laughed again and replied, "Adios." He summoned her back to the podium and reset bond at $10,000.
Soto asked, "Are you serious?" The judge replied, "I am serious. Adios."
Soto flipped him off and blurted an expletive as she walked away.
The judge then sentenced her to 30 days in jail.
