A Montana judge appears intent on trying to undo his lenient sentence for a teacher who raped a student as prosecutors pressed the state Supreme Court stop him.
The office of Montana District Judge G. Todd Baugh said Friday he plans an afternoon resentencing hearing for rapist Stacey Rambold.
Baugh stoked a furor when he sent the former Billings Senior High teacher to prison for just 30 days and suggested the 14-year-old victim shared responsibility in the case.
The judge now says a two-year prison sentence appears mandatory.
But both the prosecution and defense say it's too late for Baugh to turn back the clock, and the case must go through an appeal.
An emergency petition from the state Attorney General's Office to block the resentencing is pending Friday before the Supreme Court.
