Montana Judge Who Sentenced Former Teacher To 30 Days For Raping Teen To Retire

Claims it has nothing to do with the criticism he faced for the sentence


BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana judge who drew condemnation over his comments in a teacher-student rape case says he plans to retire at the end of the year.

District Judge Todd Baugh said Tuesday his decision had nothing to do with criticism over his courtroom assertion that the 14-year-old rape victim appeared "older than her chronological age."
