Woman who gave judge finger back in court
MIAMI (WHDH) -- A defendant, who was caught on camera flipping the bird to a judge, was back in court.
Penelope Soto was in drug court, Wednesday morning, and this time, she was subdued and acted very different from the first time she was in bond court.
On Monday, Soto faced a judge after she was charged with possession of Xnax bars.
When Soto learned her bond amount, she flipped off the judge and cursed him out too.
Judge: "You said [expletive] me?"
Soto: "Yes, sir, I did."
The judge then laid down the law for being in contempt of court.
Judge: "You did say that? I find you in direct criminal contempt. Thirty days in the county jail."
Soto: "OK, that's fine."
The judge in drug court said he will give Soto pretrial release after she serves the contempt of court charge of 30 days in jail.
