Baugh Asks High Court to Decide His Fate

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The judge in the controversial case of a teacher, who raped a 14-year-old student, will now allow our state's highest court to decide his fate.

On Tuesday, Judge G. Todd Baugh waived his formal proceedings and asked the state Supreme Court to decide his punishment.

In a court filing, the judge says his actions appeared improper and failed to promote public confidence in the courts.

The Montana Judicial Standards Commission filed a complaint against Judge Baugh earlier this month, citing his comments about the victim's age and the one-month sentence given to teacher Stacey Rambold.

Baugh has already said he expects to be publicly reprimanded or censured while others are calling for his removal from the bench.
