Penelope Soto, 19, flips off a judge and gets her bond raised from $5,000 to $10,000, and 30 days in jail for contempt of court.

Penelope Soto, a Florida woman, was jailed on Monday February 4, 2013 after flipping off a judge and directing an expletive toward the judge during her court hearing.

Soto, 18, appeared in bond court for a drug possession hearing for alleged possession of Xanax bars. She laughed when the court asked her about her possessions and the value of her jewelry, and whether she was under the influence.

The judge told Soto, “We’re not in a club, be serious about it.” Soto said she was being serious and that she apologized.

The judge initially ordered Soto to be held on $5,000 bond. There was silence, and Soto appeared to be waiting for the judge to dismiss her. The judge smirked “Bye, bye” and Soto smile, and apparently not to be outdone, replied to the judge, “Adios.”

The judge summoned her back to the bench and increased her bond to $10,000.

Soto replied, “Are you serious?”

The judge replied, “I am serious. Adios.”

Soto then looked shocked, flipped him off the judge, and blurted an expletive as she walked away. The judge asked her to return to the bench again, and asked to confirm the expletive that she then admitted she said. She returned to the bench and said, “Wassup.” The judge, now appearing irritated, ordered her held in contempt of court and sentenced her to 30 days in jail.

Xanax (Alprazolam) is classified as a schedule IV controlled substance by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Xanax is often used with other recreational drugs to relieve the panic or distress of “bad trip” reactions to psychedelic drugs, such as LSD. It is also used in an attempt to help sleep following the drug-induced agitation and insomnia in the “comedown” stages of stimulant use, such as amphetamine. Xanax may also be used in conjunction with other depressant drugs, such as alcohol, marijuana, heroin or other opiates with hope that it will enhance the psychological effect of the co-abused drugs.
