Ex-Teacher Stacey Rambold freed After 30-Day Term for Rape of 14-year-old student.
Judge G. Todd Baugh presiding over the case sentenced former high school teacher Stacey Rambold only 31 days minus the one day he already served because victim Cherice Morales “… seemed older than her chronological age.” Later the judge told CNN that statement was not the best choice of words, adding the crime was “… was not a violent, forcible, beat-the-victim rape, like you see in the movies … but it was nonetheless, a rape and should not have happened.” Prosecutors argued Rambold targeted a troubled young girl and violated his position of trust as a teacher at Billings Senior High School by engaging in a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.
The sentence from Judge G. Tood Baugh has been discovered to be an illegal sentence because it is under the minimum time for the rape case. Future legal proceedings are being scheduled. Judge G. Todd Baugh says he was never made aware of the minimum mandatory sentence of two years.
