Let’s go back to the year 2008 when prosecutors charged former Senior High teacher Stacey Rambold with three counts of sexual intercourse without consent after learning of his relationship with at the time 14-year-old student Cherice Moralez. The case was still pending in February 2010 when Moralez committed suicide just before her 17th birthday. And now after five years this whole thing started Stacey Dean Rambold was ordered by a Montana Judge to, get this, only 30 days in jail!
Stacey Rambold was born in 1959. Stacey currently lives in Billings, Montana, from 1996 to 2002 he lived in Laurel, MT. The once 49-year-old was said to had groomed a troubled 14-year-old high school freshman, Morales.
The outraged was felt by Cherice’s mother at court when somehow Rambold escaped an initial 10 year sentence that prosecutors had asked for! Auliea Hanlon, the girl’s mother, shouted “You people suck!” as she stormed out of the courtroom! Chereice’s mom had begged for justice, testifying Rambold’s sexual relationship with her daughter, was a “major factor” in the girl’s suicide.
Then to the shock of her mother the judge who is 66-years-old claimed Moralez was “as much in control of the situation” as her 49-year-old teacher. He added the girl was “older than her chronological age.”
Another shocking detail in the case is that Rambold cut a deal since star witness will not be there; with prosecutors telling him to complete a 3-year sex offender treatment program but the obviously sick man was kicked out for receiving unsupervised visits with minors and because he began having sex with a woman.
But judge Baugh said he didn’t think the actions that got Rambold kicked out of the treatment program warranted years in prison!
According to the 54-year-old attorneys, said the teacher has lost his job, his license, his house and his wife.
Publications say Montana District Court Judge G. Todd Baugh is running for a fifth term overseeing cases in Montana’s 13th Judicial District.
