A Montana judge told a 21-year-old man convicted in a vandalism spree to replace his fast-food job with a “real job” so he can more quickly pay restitution.
The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/T727m2) District Judge G. Todd Baugh (baw) sentenced Brandon Daniel Turell to 10 years, with five suspended, and ordered him to pay over $13,000 in restitution. Baugh is separately facing public censure and suspension for saying a 14-year-old rape victim appeared “older than her chronological age.”
Prosecutors said Turell and a co-defendant used a stolen BB gun to shoot out the windows of about 100 vehicles in December 2012.
Baugh asked Turell what he was doing to repay his victims. Turell said he had been working at Burger King, to which Baugh responded: “Why can’t you get a real job?”
