Have 30 days for criminal contempt, bitch!
Penelope Soto, 18, was arrested on drug possession charges. After being smart with the judge throughout her entire hearing, she was slapped with a $5,000 fine.

Judge held me in contempt of court
For givin' him the finger and things of that sort
Anything to say before you're dismissed?
Just one: you saw my blinker bitch
That pic looks like a mix between the scream mask and a blow-up doll.
She probably deserved it, but contempt of court is the biggest bullshit charge of all. I don't get to put people in jail who are rude to me.
She probably makes that face a lot.
She definitely seemed stoned
Criminal contempt is different from the standard run-of-the-mill contempt, apparently...
I'm nowhere near as anti-law enforcement as a good chunk of this board seems to be, but what is the justification for the state spending money to keep someone in jail for 30 days for giving a judge the finger? What greater sense of justice is served besides the judge's individual sense of honor?
I've always wanted to be threatened for contempt of court and reply with "contempt implies respect bitch"
Um, that seems a bit excessive ...
cut off her finger and send her on her way.
I have the power!!!!!!
Don't know for sure, but when they do this don't they usually say let them out after a few days.
She's a dumb, ditzy, disrespectful kid but i dont think what she did warranted himcalling her back and doubling it.
30 days in lock-up would probably do her some good.
you mean the mask from scream?
Yeah, judge seemed to be looking to fuck with her.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
Yeah, the scream mask. The mask from scream.
She's an idiot and was probably high but that judge is an absolute POS obviously looking to pick a fight with his derisive "bye bye". Sad that so much power is given to people like this.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
The Judge is a prick and the girl was shmacked.
Balls to the wall
Meh. 30 days was excessive but I can't feel too sorry for her. You can't flip off anyone in a legal position of authority and expect not to have the book thrown at you. A few days in jail would have been fine by me.
30 days in jail will straighten that bitch right out. It's not an expenditure...it's an investment.
No problem with this. I know of a few judges in some of our local jurisdictions who likely would've gone for a cool 60 days.
She wasn't fined anything. This was obviously a bail review / arraignment. He increased the bail from $5k to $10k. She'll serve less than 10 days on the contempt charge.
So the judge is exempt from acting like an adult simply because he's a judge but the 18 year old Xanax user should be held to a higher standard? Being a cop or judge doesn't give one free reign to be a douche.
My take....F the judge, he's worthless. Who cares what she did. Didn't impact anyone or matter
It's the same thing as a bball player showing up a ref, they're gonna hammer you. Having said that, 1 day would have been fine.
