Teen Girl Shocked When Judge Gives Her A Dose Of Reality (Video)

A Miami teen attended a bond hearing and was in a sassy mood. As the judge asked her questions, she was giddy, giggling, disrespectful and refused to answer the judge's questions directly. Things escalated, and the girl even swore at the judge and gave him the middle finger. By the time she appeared before the judge again, she was in tears.

Penelope Soto, 18, was attending her bond hearing after she'd been charged with possession of prescription pills. The teen acted as though she wasn't taking the hearing seriously, and the judge was getting visibly annoyed.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat displayed a lot of patience. He set her bail for the standard amount of $5,000. When the girl twirled around and shouted, "Adios!" the judge called her back. He upped the bail to $10,000 for her disrespectful behavior.

Soto was shocked, but this still didn't help her wise up. She flashed her middle finger at the judge and said, "F--k you!' as she walked away.

The judge called her back again, this time holding her in criminal contempt of court. He sentenced her to 30 days in jail. Soto's jaw dropped.

When Soto faced the judge again, she was in tears. She apologized to him, the court and even her family for her disrespectful behavior. She was visibly terrified.

Judge Rodriguez-Chomat, displaying the wisdom of Solomon, assured her that he was no monster.

"We live in a society where we listen to music and every other word is a profanity," the judge explained to Soto. "We live in a society where young people like you feel like it's perfectly okay to call all kind of names to their teachers, professors, their friends, and they feel that's okay... and we live in a society where police officers in particular are abused on a daily basis, mostly by young people, who believe that it is okay to call police men all kinds of names.”

“That's totally unacceptable," the judge concluded.

The judge felt Soto learned her lesson. Showing he is truly a good guy, he dropped the contempt charges and vacated her 30-day jail term.
