A Montana judge previously sparked outrage when he sentenced a former teacher to 30 days in jail for the rape of a 14-year-old girl. Now, according to NBC News, this same judge is in the news with another curious sentencing.
District Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced Pace Anthony Ferguson to a writing exercise after Ferguson physically assaulted and punched his girlfriend, causing her face to be fractured in three places. First, he sentenced Ferguson to the maximum of 6 months in jail and ordered him to pay $3800 in medical bills. No surprise.
Next he ordered him to do an exercise that was reminiscient of elementary school. He ordered him to write “Boys do not hit girls” 5000 times.
The Chief Deputy who prosecuted the case was asked what she thought of the sentencing. She replied, “We’ll continue to prosecute domestic violence cases no matter the outcome. We’ll continue to fight that fight because that’s why we’re here… for the protection of the community”.
It certainly makes you wonder about that judge and whether that represents a way of thinking in Montana.
For pic o’ day, I thought that this picture was filled with curious things. The police seem to be paying litttle attention and the horse seems uneffected. The “other horse” seems completely out of place. A pic o’ with its own imaginery story:
