Miami woman jailed after flipping off judge

MIAMI (AP) -- A Miami woman has been jailed on contempt charges after flipping off a judge during a drug possession hearing.
Miami television station NBC 6 (http://bit.ly/WNQ60c ) reported that 18-year-old Penelope Soto laughed Monday when Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat asked how much her jewelry was worth as he inquired about her financial assets.
The judge told Soto to be serious and Soto said she was being serious.
He set Soto's bond at $5,000 and said bye-bye. Soto laughed again and replied, "adios." He summoned her back and reset her bond at $10,000.
Soto asked whether the judge was serious and he said, "I am serious. Adios."
Soto flipped him off and blurted an expletive as she walked away.
The judge summoned her again and sentenced her to 30 days in jail.
