One-Month Rape Sentence awarded to Teacher overturned

Stacey Rambold was a teacher who had raped a 14 year old student. He was given a very light prison sentence of a single month due to the judge’s faulty thinking. The judge thought that the victim was equally to blame for the sexual misdemeanor. 

So he sent Stacey to jail for the unbelievably short period of one month. The ineffective punishment drew tons of criticism from many feminist groups which said that it was very unfair. As for the student who had borne the brunt of the burden, she later on decided to end her life. 

The judge named Baugh who had made a travesty of justice spoke during the trial of how the victim looked way older than her chronological age. He even hinted that she was probably involved in the act as a willing partner. 

The case was reopened and a different judge was allowed to give the verdict. "The district court lacked authority to suspend all but 31 days of Rambold's sentence, and its judgment is therefore reversed," Justice Michael Wheat said in the opinion, joined by five other justices.

According to the new rules, Rambold could face anything from four to 15 years in prison for his act of indiscretion. As for the judge, who decided not to judge at all, he will have disciplinary action taken against him by a committee especially formed for that purpose. 

The judge and the victim’s guardians have refused to comment any further on the matter. Justice delayed is justice denied. The strange rape case showed that the female population of Montana will not stand the steamroller effect of male chauvinism and manmade laws to get in the way of justice and fair play for their sisters. 

Marian Bradley, president of the Montana chapter of the National Organization for Women, said, "It sends a clear message to the judiciary that women in Montana and women across the nation will not stand for the injustice and misconduct that ensued in this case and which in all likelihood have caused the mishandling of rape cases elsewhere."

Every female is also at one time or another, a mother, wife, sister or daughter. Therefore, the goal should be to protect half the human race from the feral designs of the other half. Where human conditions made things intolerable, the law simply had to step in to lend a hand.
