Rambold, Baugh

MISSOULA -

A Montana judge grabbed national headlines for the comments he made after sentencing a former Billings teacher to just 31 days in jail.

Stacey Rambold pleaded guilty to raping a student. He violated the terms of his plea agreement, leading to the 31-day sentence.

Judge G Todd Baugh drew outrage when he commented that the student, who later committed suicide, was "Older than her chronological age."

He has since apologized for the comment, but several groups are still asking for him to step down.

Montana's attorney general is asking the state Supreme Court to reconsider the controversial sentence.
