Charges dropped after she "tearfully apologized". In the shocker of the century, she admitted she had been drunk and on Xanax.
Now that we know she isn't going to spend 30 days in jail and be a felon, this judge scaring the living crap out of her is probably the best thing that has ever happened to this girl.
MIAMI (AP) — A Miami woman has apologized for flipping off a judge, who then dropped contempt charges and vacated her 30-day jail term. Soto tearfully apologized to the judge, who said the episode should be a lesson in how to properly treat people.
Wait, so contempt is a felony? That is the only fucked up part of this entire story.
I agree!! All the judge had to do was raise his voice and instruct her on how to behave. No matter how much of disrespectful, moron that girl was, once a judge raises his voice at her, she'd get the message to behave. You will always have people who come to court with a flippant/"You Can't F@#K With Me" kind of attitude because they have been influenced by movies and/or music videos. A REAL LIFE judge raising his/her voice with a warning should put an end to the attitude.
In 1998, the Judge Jorge Rodgriguez-Chomat got into a fight with a fellow state legislature during a debate over tuition vouchers. This judge punched/attacked Carlos Valdes after he was critical of J.Rodriguez-Chomat for sending his kids to private school. This judge probably has a rep of being thin-skinned and kind of a troll to the perps who stand in front of him.
When Penelope Soto, 18, flipped off a Miami-Dade judge and cursed at him, she caught his wrath and was sent to jail for 30 days. But it turns out; 15 years ago another person felt the judges Best
Yeah and I don't get why I don't get to drive a car in the Daytona 500. No wait, actually I do. Why don't you?
