Where’s the justice? Teacher gets 30 days in jail for raping a 14-year-old student
Unreal. This sort of thing should never happen.
Check it out:
Stacey Dean Rambold was sentenced to 15 years in prison, but Yellowstone County Judge G. Todd Baugh suspended all but 31 days and credited Rambold for one day already served. Rambold, 54, was convicted of sexual intercourse without consent stemming from a sexual relationship with a student that began in 2008, the Billings Gazette reports. The victim’s mother, Auliea Hanlon, testified Rambold played a major role in her daughter’s suicide shortly before her 17th birthday. She was understandably angry with Rambold’s sentence. Hanlon repeatedly shouted “You people suck!” at the sentencing hearing yesterday, the newspaper reports. Rambold was charged with three counts of sexual intercourse without consent in October 2008 after authorities learned of a sexual relationship between him and student Cherice Morales, then 14. “The girl’s death caused problems for the prosecution, and in July 2010 Rambold entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with the Yellowstone County Attorney’s Office,” the Gazette reports.
