Montana Rapist to Get New Hearing

A Montana judge has ordered a new sentencing hearing for convicted rapist Stacey Dean Rambold, saying his initial sentence does not meet the 2-year mandatory minimum, and may be illegal. Judge G. Todd Baugh made headlines last week when he suspended all but 31 days of Rambold’s 15-year sentence for the rape of a 14-year-old student and sparked outrage with statements that the victim, who later committed suicide, was “older than her chronological age” and “as much in control of the situation” as her teacher.
