During Tuesday's Morning Rush, we told you in the news about an 18 year old who flipped off a judge during a drug possession hearing.
Penelope Soto laughed Monday when Miami Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat asked how much her jewelry was worth, as he inquired about her financial assets.
The judge told Soto ``we're not in a club, be serious about it.'' 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 to the podium and reset bond at $10,000.
Soto asked, ``Are you serious?'' The judge replied, ``I am serious. Adios.''
Soto gave him "the bird" and blurted an expletive as she walked away.
The judge then sentenced her to 30 days in jail.
