Montana teacher serves 1 month sentence for raping student, 14 year old Cherice Moralez who later committed suicide.
Although Stacey Dean Rambold is on probation for the next 14 years and 11 months, he’s technically still a free man. Is that exactly fair? Should a ravisher become a free individual after only serving 31 days behind bars?
Stacey Rambold’s only restrictions include not going to places where children congregate and not having a cell phone with photo, video or internet capabilities. Cherice Morales was raped in 2008 before committing suicide and also before trial.
Her mother says… “I hope I don’t see him, that would be horrible,” she said “I didn’t see him for the first six years. I didn’t see him until the courtroom.” But she says that someday she hopes she will be able to forgive him. “I could be miserable for the rest of my life,” she said, “but that wouldn’t do my other kids any good.”
The judge who gave Stacey Rambold the okay to be released from prison after 31 days later apologized for making a smart remark to the Moralez family. People are shocked and angry with the judges (Baugh) remarks and are working hard to get him out of office for his foolish behavior. Protestors claim “Baugh isn’t worthy of serving a high position to be a judge in the courtroom if he is now releasing convicts!”
They’re not giving up. The family, friends, and even outsiders want JUSTICE for Cherice Moralez, and won’t give up until justice is served. Halon (the mother) said…
“The pain of my daughter’s death hasn’t faded. I think we just get use to it so we don’t cry everyday,” she said, but the tears still came.
