Outcry from the public has convinced Montana District Judge G. Todd Baugh to order a new sentencing hearing for the former Billings teacher who was previously sentenced to a mere 30 days in prison for raping a student. But does he have the authority to do so?
Montanan's are some of the nicest people in the country, right? I like to believe that is a true statement based on the people I've met, however, us Montanans have a bit of explaining to do. According to Business Insider, Montana ranks in the top 10 for most corrupt states.
It's no secret that Montanan's love beer. We have a staggering 32 licensed breweries in the state, all delivering delicious hoppy goodness. But how do we stand in beer consumption across the country? Very close to the top of the keg.
National women's rights group UltraViolet joined growing calls for a Montana judge to be removed from the bench today after he sentenced a 49-year-old teacher to only 30 days in jail after he raped a 14-year-old student. The group is one of the first national groups to join the campaign, and gathered more than 20,000 signatures in just the first hour of launching their petition. You can see UltraViolet's petition here:
Firefighters from all over the country are helping to fight the fires near Lolo, Montana that have destroyed homes and are still threatening many structures. Watch a video inside to see just how close the fire is to the town.
The fires are still unpredictable and growing in the Miner Paradise Complex Fire. Officials are encouraging all Park County residents to sign up for Emergency Notifications with their cell phones. All landlines in the area are automatically signed up for the alerts.
It turns out it is a buyers market! This $59,500,000 home that sits atop a solid granite foundation on a 24 acre island on Flathead Lake is discounted from $78,000,000 and is still the most expensive in the state!
