Despicable Judge Blames 14 Year Old Rape Victim & Sentences 54 Year Old Rapist With Only 30 Days in Jail

I'm so glad I don't live in Billings, Montana, because I'm fired up about this story and am seeing red. This story has been in the news for the past few days and it really caught my attention when I saw it posted on my National Association to End Domestic Violence Facebook page.

I can't even stomach this man and the blame he placed on an innocent 14 year old girl (a MINOR!) who was raped by a 54 year old male teacher. The saddest, and most tragic, part of this story is that this young woman was blamed by the Judge and she ended up committing suicide at 16 years old. This man should NOT be on the bench and the people of Billings, Montana need to wake up right now, and get him off the bench pronto.  Yup, here we go again with blaming the female rape victim. Let's point the victim at a 14 year old girl, because yeah she was "in control of the situation." Really??!!!!!

"A Montana judge is under fire for sentencing a 54-year-old former teacher to just 30 days in jail for raping a 14-year-old girl who later committed suicide.
District Judge G. Todd Baugh, in sentencing Stacey Rambold on Monday, said victim Cherice Moralez was "as much in control of the situation" as her teacher, referring to Cherice as a troubled youth "older than her chronological age," the Billings Gazette reports.
Cherice was 16 when she killed herself in 2010 after the case was sent to criminal court.
Baugh stood by his decision Tuesday and again Wednesday." (Source: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/08/28/teacher-rape-montana/2722817/)

My question to this loser Judge Baugh: so would you turn a blind eye if your granddaughter, daughter, or niece was raped at 14 years old by a 54 year old male teacher? 
I'm signing every petition I can to bring awareness to what this despicable judge has done...and he gave the rapist a slap on the hand with only a 30 day jail sentence. The rapist is a pedophile as well so thanks for getting him back on the streets in 30 days so he can rape more young women, Judge Baugh.
Please join me in signing these petitions against Judge Baugh--let's unseat this horrible excuse of a judge who takes the side of men who rape young girls! This woman is a victim and she deserves JUSTICE!
