Rude Girl Flips Off Judge, Gets 30 Days in Lockup
Left on her own without legal representation, this girl (who was awaiting arraignment for a first arrest) was in over her head. It probably also didn’t help that she didn’t get the sobering reality of being physically present in court to knock some sense into her, since this is a video arraignment taking place from jail, where she is nervous and surrounded by other inmates. Oh, and it doesn’t help that this judge is clearly some kind of jerk.
So it is (sadly) without much surprise that the girl winds up getting sentenced to 30 days in jail for being in contempt of court after (discretely) flipping off the judge when he doubled her bond to $10,000. 30 days in county jail and it all started by having a couple of Xanax. Great. Good job, justice system.
