Last week, Montana judge Todd Baugh sentenced high school teacher Stacey Rambold to 30 days in jail for raping his 14-year-old student, who later killed herself. He also made some hideously tone-deaf comments in which he essentially blamed the teenaged rape victim, Cherice Moralez, stating that she was "older than her chronological age." Baugh furthermore completely overlooked the abusive power dynamic inherent in a teacher-student relationship (he said that the victim "was as much in control of the situation as he was" and that "it wasn't forcible, beat-up rape").
