A former teacher who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old student who later killed herself has been sentenced to 30 days in jail by a Billings, Mont., judge.
"[Judge G. Todd Baugh] made a mistake, and I'm disappointed. Thirty-one days — that's outrageous, but the Montana Supreme Court stepped in. Hopefully, they'll make it right," said Auliea Hanlon, the mother of victim Cherice Moralez, on CNN.
