Anyone who’s watched a movie about the law knows not to tick off a judge.
Florida teenager Penelope Soto was held in contempt of court and sentenced to 30 days in jail for giving Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat the finger. Wait, it gets better.
What led to this well-deserved punishment was a string of giggles, hair-playing, indirect answers and a flippant “adios” from Soto after her hearing for possession of Xanax bars.
Judge Rodriguez-Chomat was having none of it. The adios came after he initially set bail at $5,000. RC brought Soto back before him and raised the bail to $10,000. Soto got pissed and accompanied her middle finger with a “F**k You,” which went over like a lead balloon.
