District Judge G. Todd Baugh of Yellowstone County, Montana sentenced a teacher with just 30 days for raping a 14 year old student who later committed suicide
What is worse is in his sentencing statement the judge said the teenager was “as much in control of the situation” as her 49-year-old teacher, adding the girl was “older than her chronological age.”
Teachers need to know that they cannot use their position of power and influence to target the students that they are entrusted with.
Judges need to know that they are responsible to public safety and not as an enabler of predators!

Letter to
District Court Commissioners and Administrators Yellowstone County, Montana 13th District Court
We demand the resignation of District Judge G. Todd Baugh.

This representative of Yellowstone County, Montana sentenced a teacher with just 30 days for raping a 14 year old student who later committed suicide
What is worse is in his sentencing statement the judge said the teenager was “as much in control of the situation” as her 49-year-old teacher, adding the girl was “older than her chronological age.”
Teachers need to know that they cannot use their position of power and influence to target the students that they are entrusted with.
Judges need to know that they are responsible to public safety and not as an enabler of predators!

Regardless this judge's subjective interpretation of this girl's age, sex with a minor is illegal statutory rape and should be subject at the very least to the 2 year minimum of proper state law!! Such disregard for the protection of minors and rape victims only perpetuate such violations with emboldened predators seeing the price of just a slap on the wrist for violating young girls and students.
