“Here we are — six, seven years later, still waiting for justice,” she said, according to video of the sentencing from CNN affiliate KTVQ. “He knew what he was doing. He knew what was going to happen to her.”

Stacey Dean Rambold was accused of raping Cherice Moralez, a freshman in his business class at Billings Senior High, in 2007.
Moralez committed suicide in 2010, before the case went to trial and before she reached her 17th birthday.
The 55-year-old teacher pleaded guilty to sexual intercourse without consent; last year Judge G. Todd Baugh handed Rambold a 15-year sentence with all but 31 days suspended.
