    She was probably dumb enough to not even know a judge could do that.

    She should have gotten 60 days, not 30, the idiot.

    Court cases have actually defended a person's right to swear at a cop since it's not against the law to curse. cop or no.

    The chick in this case was being an idiot. I suspect, though unlikely since she was in a jail jumpsuit, she was on something with the way she was acting.

    I'm not sure it's lesson learned, but it's going to be a fun 30 days for her.

    This girl is 18, and in court for drug possession. Obviously, her life isn't going well. She's afraid, so she overcompensates and acts like a complete bitch in court.

    So the judge decides he doesn't like being disrespected, and throws his weight around by increasing her fine and giving her jail time. Which will just make her more afraid, more defensive, and more likely to end up back in that courtroom. It's no wonder our society and legal system produce so many repeat offenders with judges like this and a general population like the commenters on the article.

    The judge should have given her community service. Interacting with and helping others might do her some good.

    Eh, I think a dose of reality will do her a lot of good.

    I completely agree.

    When I was watching it I was thinking, "you idiot, I suppose that worked on your mom, your teachers, your workmates at the fast food place.. but ffs this is court." Feeling sorry for the dumb.
