Teen Flips The Bird To Judge, Goes Straight To Jail

Posted: Updated:

After a Miami judge doubled 18-year-old Penelope Soto's bond from $5,000 to $10,000, the teen seemed more than a little bit surprised.

"Are you serious?!" she exclaimed. The judge quickly responded, "I am serious. Adios."

That's when Soto, as she exited the court room, cursed at the judge and flashed him her middle finger. He called her back to verify what she had just said.

Once he did, she got what was likely the shock of her week when he said, "I find you in direct criminal contempt. Thirty days in the county jail."

Soto was originally arrested for illegal possession of anti-anxiety medication.
