Raw: Woman Curses at Judge, Flips Bird

39 posts in this topic

MIAMI (AP) — A Miami woman has been jailed on contempt charges after flipping off a judge during a drug possession hearing.

Miami television station NBC 6 (http://bit.ly/WNQ60c ) reported that 18-year-old Penelope Soto laughed Monday when Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat asked how much her jewelry was worth as he inquired about her financial assets.

The judge told Soto to be serious and 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 and reset her bond at $10,000.

Soto asked whether the judge was serious and he said, "I am serious. Adios." http://bigstory.ap.org/article/miami-woman-jailed-after-flipping-judge

I witnessed a woman call the judge a nazi, while I was in court once.

It was a first appearance - all you're there for is to either procure a court appointed attorney or to sign a waiver to retain your own.

When it was her turn, she started blabbing out this story to proclaim her innocence. The Judge calmly explained to her that they wanted to know was whether she wanted a court appointed attorney or would be retaining her own. He explained it several times and the woman kept getting madder and madder.

She eventually called him a Nazi and tried to storm out of the court room. The judge ended up not sentencing her to contempt, but he did make her stand in front of the court room and apologize to everyone.

She was in court for failing to put her child into school and/or homeschooling with proper the proper licensing.

30 days in jail? c'mon judgy... you gotta have thicker skin than that.

also, bond is a precautionary measure... not a punitive one... raising her bond because she pissed you off is out of line.

While I understand that judges have to keep control of their courtrooms, judges have a LOT of unsupervised (for lack of a better term at the moment) power.

The bond thing was vindictive.

The 30 days in county was justified for her actions, but probably too much time... 15 would be more appropriate IMO...

Moral of the story, be serious and don't piss off the judge.

While she was disrespectful, I agree with you.

He was showing off b/c he didn't like her attitude.

Contempt of Court is a automatic 30 days. There's no lesser term.

edit: just looked that up. Apparently it's up to 30 days, but I've literally never seen a judge give less than 30 for contempt.

OK, so then... don't piss off the judge I guess or you'll spend a month in an orange jumpsuit.

The bond thing was just vindictive though...

    • I am a 3 percenter. I am white, married, no children, no debt. I have a pension for the rest of my life, and we have a couple retirement accounts to also use at some point. I own the home I live in, I built and own 50% of the house my in-laws live in and we have our place in Mexico.  If you think for one fugging second that anything Trump does effects my life from one day to the next, you are sadly mistaken.  That being said, I'm also a compassionate human being who cares about the quality of life for other human beings. I've been places and seen both the best and worst of how people live all over the world. The GOP has proven time and again over the past 40 years they couldn't give a sh!t less about blue collar, middle America. The working class for the GOP are nothing but the mules who lug their riches to the bank. The backs of the working class bore not only the labor that made assholes like Trump rich, but they are also the backs the GOP stand on to keep their feet from touching the bullsh!t they spew. While racism has always had its place in politics, the GOP has become very overt in their racism and have added that to the mix as well.  Sad part is, many naive, uneducated people who live in this country and who have been the forced labor in the GOP camp for the last 40 years are supporting such a regime. Why? Because they have no nuance for anything but the very basic and will believe the simpleton idea of "building a wall" before they'll try to educate themselves and become literate with the entire immigration reform issue. They'll buy into the anti-Muslim rhetoric and believe they are the terrorists despite the fact they should more afraid of the teenage white kid down the street who spends most of his time playing video games in the basement and reads Nazi blogs on his lunch hour in the high school cafeteria.      
    • @Mr. Scot   I am happy for the good, and sad for the bad, but, I do know you will do alright. Just keep your eye on the prize, and all will be well. You may be losing this family, so you've got that going for you.   Keep Pounding my friend. Keep Pounding.
