State asks for new trial for Stacey Rambold

BILLINGS - The state of Montana is asking for the District Court to vacate the sentence of Stacey Rambold.

Late Friday, the Montana Attorney Generals office filed a brief with the Montana Supreme Court asking the court to vacate the sentence imposed last summer.

That sentence -- by Judge G. Todd Baugh -- included 31 days of prison, setting off a fire storm of protest.

The argument filed Friday says the judge should have sentenced Rambold to at least 4 years in prison.

The Supreme Court must now decide if Baugh's original sentence will stand, or if the case should be sent back for resentencing.

In 2008, Rambold was charged with three counts of sexual intercourse without consent.

The victim, Cherise Morales, committed suicide February 2010.
