MIAMI, Fla. (WSVN) - A Florida woman's attitude toward a judge in Miami landed her behind bars for a month.

Penelope Soto, 18, appeared in Miami Dade Circuit Court on a possession of xanax charge.

Judge Jorge Rodriguez Chomat initially set Soto's bail at $5,000, but her sassy retort drove him to up the bail to $10,000.

Soto then flipped the bird and cussed at the judge. Judge Chomat called the young lady back to the defendant's podium, told her she was being held in criminal contempt of court, and sentenced her to 30 days in county jail.
