"Mont. Teacher Rape Sentence Appealed"

From the Associated Press, reported by the New York Times:

State prosecutors said Wednesday they are appealing as "illegal" a 30-day sentence given by a Montana judge to a former teacher for raping a student who later killed herself.

. . .

Defendant Stacey Rambold, 54, received 15 years in prison with all but a month suspended for his months-long relationship with a student at Billings Senior High School in 2007. Victim Cherice Moralez killed herself before the case went to trial.
