FL woman's attitude with a judge lands her behind bars

Posted: Updated:

A Florida woman's attitude toward a judge in Miami lands her behind bars.  

Penelope Soto is charged with illegal possession of Xanax. When they were done discussing bond, a sarcastic "adios" apparently rubbed the judge the wrong way, so he ordered Soto to come back.

Then she did the unthinkable, she showed him the middle finger.

Judge: "Count 1 will be 10,000."

Soto: (shocked) "Are you serious?"

Judge: "I am serious. Adios!"

Soto: (BLEEP)

Judge: "Come back again."

Judge: "I believe I heard you saying to..."

Soto: "Yes I did. I'm not going to the..."

Judge: "I believe you... Did you say (BLEEP)?"

Soto: "Actually I did..."

Judge: "Did you say that?"

Soto: "Yes sir, I did."

Judge: "Oh you did say that? I find you in direct criminal contempt. 30 days in the county jail."

Soto: "Okay, that's fine."

She was immediately taken back to jail where she'll call home until March.
