After apologizing Friday for flipping the bird to a judge earlier this week, 18-year-old Penelope Soto saw her $10,000 bond and remaining jail sentence vacated.
But Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jeffrey Rosinek also ordered Soto to attend drug addiction counseling.
The judge also ordered Soto to attend drug addiction counseling.
Soto had appeared before Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat earlier this week on a Xanax possession charge. During the hearing, Soto had giggled and stroked her hair when questioned by the judge.
Never miss a local story.
After the judge initially setting her bond at $5,000 and saying “bye-bye” to Soto, she replied with a laugh and an “adios.”
Irritated, he reset her bond at $10,000.
To that, Soto offered up the rude gesture and an expletive.
That time, Rodriguez-Chomat issued a 30-day sentence for contempt of court.
Soto wasn’t laughing Friday when she apologized to the judge.
