Montana rapist to go free after 31 days in jail

OutFront Update: Stacey Rambold, the Montana rapist whose teenage victim later committed suicide, has been freed from prison after 31 days.

After serving just 31 days in prison, convicted rapist Stacey Rambold is scheduled to walk out of prison a free man on Thursday.

The 54-year-old former teacher pleaded guilty to raping his 14-year-old student who then killed herself.
The case has drawn national outrage after a Montana judge suspended Rambold's entire 15-year sentence with the exception of just one month.
