A former high school teacher in Montana who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old student who later killed herself has been sentenced to 30 days in jail by a judge who said the victim was "older than her chronological age" and "as much in control of the situation" as the teacher.

The Billings Gazette reports District Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced 54-year-old Stacey Dean Rambold to 15 years in prison, with all but 31 days suspended. He also gave Rambold credit for one day already served.

The girl's mother repeatedly screamed, "You people suck!" and stormed out of the courtroom Monday.

Rambold reached a deferred prosecution agreement after the girl's death, but prosecutors revived the case when they learned he had been terminated from a sex offender treatment program.
