Montana Court Overturns One-Month Rape Sentence
(Billings, MT) -- Montana's supreme court is overturning the one month sentence of the former teacher convicted of raping a 14-year-old student. A lower court came under widespread criticism when it sentenced Stacey Rambold to just one month in jail for the 2007 rape of the student, who committed suicide before the case went to trial. The state's high court ruled today that the sentencing violates a state law that requires a minimum four years in prison when the victim is younger than 16 years old.
