Montana Judge Apologizes for Comments in Teen’s Rape
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana judge has apologized but says he has no plans to resign after his remarks about a 14-year-old rape victim sparked criticism and protests. District Judge G. Todd Baugh says he deserves to be chastised for his comments. But he says he stands by his decision to send a former teacher to jail for 30 days for having sex with the girl, who later killed herself. Protesters plan a rally today outside the Yellowstone County courthouse in Billings to demand that Baugh resign.
