Remember Stacey Rambold? Shouldn’t be hard. The former Montana high-school teacher was in the news just about a month ago for receiving an absurdly short sentence after he admitted to raping a 14-year-old who later committed suicide. Prosecutors are still appealing that 30-day term, but in the meantime, Rambold is scheduled to go free today, much to the chagrin of pretty much everybody but himself.
