Default Re: Teen gives the judge the finger

A Miami teenager who made national headlines for flipping off a judge was released from jail Friday after she tearfully apologized for her actions.

Penelope Soto, 18, apologized before Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat, saying she was under the influence of Xanax and alcohol when she made the obscene gesture.

Video of the confrontation went viral online.

'I apologize not only to the court and you, but to my family,' Soto told the judge with tears in her eyes, reported.

Rodriguez-Chomat dropped her 30-day jail sentence following her apology.

Soto was appearing in court the first time after she was arrested for drug possession. After her bond was set at $10,000, she made the offensive gesture to Rodriguez-Chomat.

As a result, she was hauled back in front of the judge and given a jail sentence for contempt of court...
