BILLINGS (AP) — A former Billings Senior High School teacher who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old student who later committed suicide has been sentenced to 30 days in jail by a judge who said the victim was “older than her chronological age” and “as much in control of the situation” as the teacher.

District Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced Stacey Dean Rambold to 15 years in prison with all but 31 days suspended for sexual intercourse without consent. He gave Rambold credit for one day already served.

            Religious People Tend to Be More Racist, Study Finds

            I in researching The bad judge ( .D Todd Bough ) I found out he was raised in A deeply religious
            Southern Baptist family in the Bible Belt. Hmmm? The rape victim was Hispanic maybe??? just maybe. Well the good news is that most Americans ( well at least the ones that have Gray Matter between there ears ) especially the one under the age of 30 years don't see race.
            I think the Internet is helping people of the world see each other as they truly are and with out the old mined control freaks turning the control knobs.

            @ Libra41--having grown up in MT but now living out of state, I am also not proud of this story.

            Let's put this judge out of work. Sign the petition, please, and pass it on.

            This story made it's way around the country. I've been contacted by people out of state, wondering what in the hell is going on in Montana. Doesn't make me proud.

            The thought that a child was acting older than her "chronological age" is an excuse that has been used by sex offenders for generations. I cannot believe that a judge would use it....This poor mom and family. Shame on that teacher, the judge and if there was a jury.....

            The judge said his reasons are his reasons and his alone. Maybe this judge needs to be investigated. Sad to say but maybe he has a thing for children. There are some pretty sick people out there and some of them are in positions of power. This case makes me sick.

            Please publicize this story more. This story is enough to make every parent literally sick. The judge should be fired immediately!

            Disgraceful how do men like this be come Judges? How do we protect our daughters from men who would prey on them ? The Judge should be fired and the perpetrator should be sentenced to 30 years. Parents rise up against this injustice.

            This judge should be removed by the Governor immediately. And the good folks of Yellowstone County should make sure it happens.

            He had some serious connections somewhere. She was 14, end of story. A thirty day sentence means this judge should be removed from office, as he has no credibility as a judge. Montana has no justice system, only a system that favors the people that have connections. I am so disgusted.

            I am stunned at the antiquated attitude portrayed by the statements of the judge in this case. Even if the child was "older than her chronological age", she was still a CHILD and involved in a relationship with someone in a position of power. Even if it was consensual, she was still a CHILD. As far as I know, 14 is not the age of consent in Montana. This story made me physically ill.
