Montana judge to be censured over rape comments

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Supreme Court today will publicly reprimand a judge who gave a lenient sentence to a former teacher for raping a 14-year-old student.

District Judge G. Todd Baugh of Billings gave Stacey Rambold just 30 days in prison after he suggested the victim also shared responsibility for the 2007 rape.

The girl committed suicide before the case went to trial.

Baugh is scheduled to appear before the court in Helena, where one of the justices will read a censure statement prepared in advance.
