Outrage of the decade — 87 Comments

  1. Thanks Phoenix, I too, am very glad to read that there is a minimum 2 year sentence and that there are SOME judges that are outraged by the complete disregard by the narcissist judge’s initial sentencing.

    It really speaks to the lack of remorse in the pedophile, that he was given an even MORE lenient sentence initially, but he was hauled back into court because he broke the conditions of that sentence. He didn’t disclose a romantic relationship and he visited with children:

    Her 2010 suicide took away the prosecution’s main witness and resulted in a deferred-prosecution agreement that required Rambold to attend a sex-offender treatment program.

    When he was booted from that program — for not disclosing a sexual relationship with an adult woman and having an unauthorized visit with the children of his relatives — the prosecution on the rape charge was revived.

  2. Joyce- I would be willing to bet that the courts and judiciary system would say something similar to this-

    If we reprimanded the judges or removed them from the bench, every single time a sentence was handed down that didn’t make sense or didn’t please the majority of public opinion, we would have very few judges who remain on the bench for very long and fewer yet in the pool to choose from to take their place.

    I can hear it now… Sounds like nails on a chalkboard for many of us. I would also be willing to put prosecutors and public defenders on the list for review when they throw out and barter for such leniency or compromisingly weak punishment agreements. If any or all of them faced reprimands, sanctions or punishment when they turn another one out that recommits- we might see a change. Until then? I’m not holding my breath.

  3. Well, it is a double edged sword with the judges….if public opinion (vigilante justice) always holds sway with the judge’s decision, in theory he is not able to sentence someone properly, BUT if the judge is a fool or worse, a crook, he has impunity to do whatever he wants.

    Like the president can pardon anyone…and as they leave office they are going out of office so there won’t be any repercusions so they pardon whoever has greased their “foundation” Clinton did a bunch of those pardons that were essentially BOUGHT. Almost every president has done the same thing.

    The DA also is immune except where they are elected but the voters have a short memory or just don’t know what he has done “behind closed doors” or the deals with the devil that he has made, The press is the best protection we have from these secret deals but even that is seldom used. That Judge in Montana got enough bad PRESS that the powers that be found a way to resentence that creep. Another town there that refused to prosecute ANY rapes, the press exposed them and now there is a federal investigation iinto that town’s DA office, sheriff etc.

    When Ken Hamilton was caught with a gun, trying to break into my son’s home, there were a bunch of charges that they had evidence on and did not charge him with…they plead him out for only having a gun by a felon. Not the identity theft I gave them evidence of, not the failure to register as a sex offender, attempted breaking and entering, terroristic threatening with a fire arm, etc. embezzlement…and more…he got 5 years with 2 suspended, and only did about 18 months behind bars…when he got out his new parole officer didn’t even know he was a sex offender.

    Yea, I was fried, but I was just glad he went to jail and prison at all.

    • With as many cards stacked against him as that? It would be easy to see vigilante justice used and why. He might no longer be a concern for the state, the DA, or anyone else in the ‘system’ if he was no longer staring at the dirt from the topside. I sometimes wonder if that is actually what some of the officials hope for. “If you take care of it yourself, then I don’t have to.”

      I have also heard tale of defense attorneys who do their job ‘so well’ that they leave loopholes for the prosecutors or subtley build the case for them so their client is put away where they belong. Shrugs. It happens.

  4. I shake my head at the “IN-justice” system in our courts, of course no human attempt at justice is going to be fair because even the best intentioned humans are not perfect, and then we have others who are NOT so well intentioned. Judges take bribes, judges are stoopid, attorneys are good, bad, honest and dishonest…time and money are limited so DAs make deals with the devil. People with money to hire “slick lawyers” get better “service” from the justice system…look at OJ, he got away with murder, but he got too cocky and didn’t get away with the last one.

    I used to think I had the answers to all this, but I realize now I don’t even know all the questions. It is just that some cases that do make the news are sooooo outrageous they make me grind my teeth! LOL

  5. Welllll, guess what? They are going to RESENTENCE this pedophile after that judge blamed the victim and gave him 30 days! About time for sure. He should get a term of YEARS not days in prison. It is about time that this injustice is righted. I’ve been grinding my teeth to the gums over this one and I guess others have been too. That judge should have been tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail.!@

    An ex-teacher from Montana is to be re-sentenced on Friday for raping a 14-year-old student, after a court earlier jailed him for only one month in a judgment that outraged women’s rights activists.

    A prosecutor has recommended that former Billings High School instructor Stacey Rambold instead serve 10 years in prison for the 2007 rape of his pupil, Cherice Moralez, who committed suicide before the case went to trial.

    Rambold pleaded guilty last year to one count of rape and was sentenced by state judge G. Todd Baugh to 15 years in prison, with all but 31 days suspended and credit for one day served. The sentence was later overturned by Montana justices for being unlawfully lenient.

    Baugh was censured by state supreme court justices in July for suggesting Moralez had been “as much in control of the situation” as her then 47-year-old teacher. The judge has said he intends to retire when his term expires at the end of the year.

    Rambold is to be re-sentenced by a different state judge in a hearing in which Yellowstone County Attorney Scott Twito will technically seek a 20-year prison sentence with 10 years suspended, while Rambold’s lawyer will ask for a 15-year term with all but two years suspended.

    Rambold was charged in 2008 with three counts of sexual intercourse without consent with Moralez, but she killed herself in 2010 before the case could go to trial, crippling a prosecution that depended on her testimony.

    In a plea deal later that year, Rambold admitted to a single rape count, and prosecutors agreed to dismiss the case if he completed a sex offender treatment program.

    • Joyce, the only thing that I can say is that I’m glad that I’m not sitting a bench. Life without parole wold be suitable, absolutely.

      Across the boards, and across the States, consequences really need to fit the crimes. Someone where I live was recently sentenced to 18 months in jail (NOT prison) for a drunken hit-and-run that resulted in a death. I was shocked into silence. In this same State, a person can be sent away for 6 years for having 1/2 ounce of weed, but they only have an 18-month debt to Society for drinking alcohol, getting into a vehicle while drunk, driving while intoxicated, and running over a teenager and leaving them for dead? REALLY!?

      I just can’t wrap my head around things, sometimes………

      • Truthy, my grandfather and 2 CLOSE friends were killed by alcohol related crashes and you know…I think it should be the same as first degree murder and life without parole for DRUNK DRIVING resulting in a death. Here in my state a woman got her 3rd arrest for DWI while on probation and she has gotten a slap on the wrist. You know, these people will NOT CHANGE unless they are prosecuted and others can see the results of DWI and that includes drunk driving while on drugs.

        Well, don’t want to get on a stump here but my most violent protests of crime are sexual offenses (especially pedophilia) and drunk driving.

        Personally I would crucify them and leave their bodies hanging for the crows as a warning to the next guy who wants to rape a child or get behind the wheel drunk.

  6. Well, another judge is doing it again, read this article
