Montana Judge’s Critics to Bring Complaint to State

Critics of a Montana judge who handed down a 30-day sentence to a former teacher who raped a student say they will file a formal complaint calling for the judge’s removal.

Representatives of Montana National Organization for Women and the activist group Ultraviolet said they would file the complaint against Judge G. Todd Baugh on Tuesday with the state Judicial Standards Commission in Helena.

Baugh said last month that the 14-year-old victim was “older than her chronological age” and suggested she bore some responsibility in the case.

If the commission decides Baugh’s actions were biased or otherwise inappropriate, it can forward the complaint to the Supreme Court.

Court officials say judicial complaints reached the state’s high court just six times in the last 25 years. Only twice were judges removed.
