Bird-flipping girl makes nice with judge so she can get out of jail2/9/2013
Contrition can open so many doors. Sometimes even the one to a jail cell. Penelope Soto, the woman who became the Internet's bad girl of the week for giving the finger to Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat during her bail hearing in Miami-Dade circuit court, had her 30-day contempt-of-court sentence lifted after apologizing repeatedly in a second appearance before him. The old softie even waived bond, and all but absolved Soto of her transgression by noting, "I should not even hold you totally responsible. We live in a society where if you listen to music, every other word is a profanity." Soto admitted she had taken Xanax the day of her hearing and will attend a drug-treatment program. And, presumably, keep that finger holstered. [Source]
