Judge To Reconsider Rapist’s 30-Day Sentence
- The Montana judge who sentenced a teacher to only 30 days of a 15-year sentence in prison for the statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl (who later killed herself) has decided his sentence is “illegal” because it is less than the mandatory two-year minimum. Judge Todd Baugh, who said the 14-year-old victim was “in as much control of the situation” as her 49-year-old rapist because children aren’t children when sex is involved now, or something, has called for a new hearing this Friday. Let’s hope that creepy teacher gets a sentence he deserves. [Jezebel]
