BILLINGS - Convicted rapist Stacey Rambold rushed past media as he left the Probation and Parole Office in Billings Thursday afternoon.
This media frenzy comes after serving his 30 day sentence at the Montana Prison in Deer Lodge.
During his meeting with his probation officer, Rambold learned of the 59 conditions he must follow for the next 15 years of his life. "He does have certain conditions that are exclusive to sex offenders that he will have to follow," said Probation and Parole Supervisor Chris Evans. "He will be supervised by a sex offender specialist by the Department of Corrections. That's a probation officer that has specialized training and experience in working with sex offenders."
Some of those conditions include completing sex offender treatment, which he has failed in the past. Rambold cannot contact minors and he cannot supervise any children.
The Probation and Parole office is now in the process of deciding what level of supervision Rambold will fall under. That decision can take weeks but for now, Evans says Rambold will be under close watch. "There are six different levels of supervision that we use, depending on where he comes out," Evans said. "The officer has the discretion to see him or supervise more often than not."
Rambold's sentence of 31 days in prison and 15 years probation comes after Rambold violated his probation and then entered a plea agreement this past April. He pleaded guilty to one Felony count of sexual intercourse without consent.
Since then, District Judge Todd Baugh has taken criticism from across the country and the Montana Supreme court has stopped the judge from increasing Rambold's prison sentence to two years. That decision is now up to the Supreme Court.
"I haven't seen justice yet," said Auliea Hanlon, mother of Rambold's Victim Cherice Moralez. "30 days isn't justice. We'll see what happens. And apparently with the courts, anything can happen." Rambold raped the then 14-year-old Senior High student Cherice Moralez in 2007. She committed suicide 3 years later.
Rambold has already registered as a sex offender with the state of Montana. Detectives with the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office say he has three days to register with the county.
Judge Baugh has not said if he plans to run for re-election when his term expires next year.
