Today's subject is a resident of FloriDUH. Her name is Penelope Soto, who in court to be tried on a drug charge. The judge is one Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat.
During the hearing, Soto flipped her hair, dodged the judge's questions, laughed at the judge, and generally acted like the poster child for retroactive abortion rights. Chomat socked her with the maximum fine, $5,000.
Soto kept talking smack to the judge. He hit her with another $5,000.
When the judge told her he was serious about the fines, she flipped him off.
The judge, cool as a cucumber, gave her thirty days in the slammer for contempt of court. And that has to be served separate from the jail time for the drug charges.
So, if you are upset with a judge, vote them out. Flipping them off, where it becomes part of the public record, is not advised.
