Program administrators terminated Rambold after he missed meetings, had unsupervised visits with minors and began having sex with a woman. A civil lawsuit Hanlon filed against the school district revealed that school officials in 2004 ordered Rambold not to touch or spend time alone with female students. The district settled the case for $91,000. Baugh said he didn’t think the actions that got Rambold kicked out of the treatment program warranted years in prison. Rambold’s attorney said his client was now in a new program. Read more: www.nydailynews.com...
Baugh told a reporter he believes the 30-day jail sentence was appropriate given the nature of the case. He likened the hearing Monday to a probation violation in which a defendant is re-sentenced for violating terms of a suspended sentence.
As he did Monday in court, Baugh said Wednesday he believes the violations of the deferred prosecution agreement between Rambold and state prosecutors were not serious enough to warrant a lengthy prison term.
While the case was pending, and a few weeks before her 17th birthday, Morales took her own life.
The girl's death caused problems for the prosecution, and in July 2010 Rambold entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with the Yellowstone County Attorney's Office.
The agreement called for prosecutors to put the case on hold for three years. The charges would be dismissed, the agreement stated, if Rambold completed a sex offender treatment program and complied with other conditions. (Emphasis added0
Before Baugh handed down the flimsy sentence, Hanlon had testified that Rambold’s statutory rape of Morales was a “major factor” in the girl’s later suicide. The distraught mother pleaded with the judge for a harsh sentence.
A doctor who is treating Rambold also testified, assuring the judge that the convict poses a low risk to society.

It's not a matter of you or me or the judge, the law states she is 2yrs under permissable age, there is nothing to debate, this guy is a rapist, and the poor young girl now come and gone, never to be part of this life again.
that is just too far over the line... casterate him. and dump him in the desert, something will remove him in time... as if anyone cares, this judge should be removed from his duty with immediate effect... so get OUT Judge..

Only in your mind. I'd bet money on the fact that if you were to poll 20 people on the street you'd get almost a 100% agreement that anyone like this guy deserves the worst that can befall him that our legal system allows.
