Woman Who Flipped the Bird to a Judge Earning Redemption

Penelope Soto at First Appearance

Penelope Soto at First Appearance

Penelope Soto went viral a few weeks ago, when she flipped off a judge at first appearance and got held in contempt. I discussed why the judge was allowed to do that, but how several things went awry that denied Ms. Soto her due process. Her contempt sentence was subsequently set aside, and she appeared before a different judge for status yesterday, and was congratulated for the progress she was making. None of the stories I’ve seen have identified her attorney or attorneys, but they should be commended for their representation. They got the judge to set aside the contempt, and have gotten her into drug counseling which seems to be helping her out.

  1. Justice done …. in a country where justice is rarely seen and unjust actions taken against people that didn’t terrorize, that didn’t shoot children, that didn’t commit a crime equal to the punishment. The justice system in this country is Subjective not Objective and the punishments prove it. It’s all about the almighty buck. It’s a damn shame
