Judge G. Todd Baugh handed Stacey Rambold a 30-day sentence after he was convicted of repeatedly raping one of his teen students, Cherice Morales, who committed suicide shy of her 17th birthday.

A 30-day sentence for the repeated rape of a minor is an injustice- it is a tarnish on the judicial system and reflects a deeply institutionalized rape culture that cannot be tolerated. We are asking the Judge to TAKE RAPE SERIOUSLY and give Rambold a 20-year sentence, as initially sought by Cherice's family.

If you'd like to contact Judge Baugh directly, his phone number is listed on the Yellowstone County Judicial Court District website: http://www.co.yellowstone.mt.gov/clerk_court/district.asp

      New Hearing Ordered in Montana Rape Case

      A former teacher sent to prison for 30 days for raping a student is set to return to court Friday because the sentence may have been illegal, but the move has failed to quiet criticisms of the judge overseeing the case. District Judge G. Todd Baugh said Tuesday that state law appears to...

      This is for every victim that was blamed, disbelieved, harassed, or denied justice. This is a disgusting display of ignorance on this judges behalf and nobody that willfully ignorant should be in a position of power!

      Judge Baugh is either senile or unable to understand the consequences of his decisions. He only apologized for his illegal remarks in court because the people kept the eye of the world on this poor excuse of a "Judge".

      Because I was once in that same position. A judge stated that I looked older than I was. The case involved my pediatrician and a family friend. The Dr. was not convicted after raping me in his office when I was 13 years old! I attempted suicide during the trial and because of what the judge said. He also attempted suicide. He went on to have a very long and prosperous career and I have suffered emotionally since. The laws need to be upheld! If someone's criminal acts cause a victims suicide then they should be charged with manslaughter! The victim is not the one on trial. By not prosecuting these pedophiles the courts are allowing them to continue harming children.

      Baugh should be raped himself and sentence his sodomisers to 3 days because obviously he is old enough and looking at the way he passes sentences, he wants it bad.
