Montana judge orders man to write 'boys do not hit girls' — 5,000 times
BILLINGS, Mont. — The Montana judge who said a teen rape victim appeared “older than her chronological age” has sentenced a man convicted of punching his girlfriend to write “Boys do not hit girls” 5,000 times.
District Judge G. Todd Baugh also sentenced 27-year-old Pacer Anthony Ferguson to six months in jail for fracturing the woman's face in three places during an August 2012 argument.
Baugh set off a public furor when he made the comment about the 14-year-old rape victim and sentenced her teacher-rapist to only a month in prison. He ordered Ferguson on Monday to number the list, sign it and mail it to him by May 23.
The Billings Gazette reported that Ferguson also faces eight years in prison for violating the terms of his release.
