Penelope Soto, the girl who flipped off a judge in a Miami court earlier this month, is receiving a round of applause from another judge for passing all of her drug tests and regularly attending narcotics anonymous. When Penelope appeared in court on February 25 she had a different attitude and appearance to match.
“The girl who flipped off a judge” was originally in court for being accused of being in possession of Xanex bars. Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat (the judge Penelope flipped off) became upset with Penelope for laughing and “not taking it seriously.” When she went to leave she called “adios” to the judge. He called her back and raised her bail to $10,000. Penelope’s attitude quickly went from playful to pissed. She walked away and flipped off the judge saying “F*** YOU!” He called her back again and sentenced her to 30 days in jail.
Fortunately for Penelope she did not actually end up serving the 30 days, but only served 5 after a tearful apology she made to the judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat.
A more polished Penelope stood before a different judge just a few days ago and announced her plans to continue working part time and go back to school. The judge gave her another round of applause for this.
What do you think of Penelope now? Do you think she deserves a round of applause after flipping off a judge only a few weeks ago? Let us know in the comments below.
