Penelope Soto, an eighteen year old Florida woman, was in Miami Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat's courtroom Monday, facing charges of drug possession for Xanax.
Judge Rodriguez-Chomat was preparing to release her on a $5,000 bond when the laughing young woman sarcastically said "Adios" before walking away from the bench.
The judge didn't appreciate her flippant attitude and increased her bail to $10,000.
"Are you serious?" Soto gasped, when she heard the sentence. Judge Rodriguez-Chomat affirmed that he was serious.
As the young woman walked away, she raised her middle finger, and directed an obscenity at the judge.
Judge Rodriguez-Chomat then called the girl back to face him one more time, where he immediately charged her with contempt of court, and sentenced her to 30 days in jail.
