OUTRAGE: Convicted Rapist Gets 30 Days in Prison Following Suicide of Victim
A former High School teacher has received just 30 days in jail following his conviction in the rape of 14 year old Cherice Morales. Morales committed suicide in 2010, two years after accusing 54 year old Stacey Dean Rambold of at least three sexual encounters.
The judge said 14-year-old Morales was “older than her chronological age” and Rambold’s lawyer asked the judge to “consider how he’s been punished to this point.”
Morales’ mother believes that the encounters were a direct effect to her child’s suicide and stormed from the courtroom following the sentencing, but not before leaving them with a few passing words. “You people suck”, was said to be her parting phrase after Montana Judge G. Todd Baugh handed down a 15 year sentence, with all but 31 days suspended from it.
