    A controversial Montana judge is making headlines again for telling a defendant who works in the fast-food industry to ‘get a real job’ so he can pay restitution.

    A controversial Montana judge is making headlines again for telling a defendant who works in the fast-food industry to ‘get a real job’ so he can pay restitution.

    District Judge G. Todd Baugh also handed 21-year-old Brandon Daniel Turell a 10-year sentence with five years suspended.

    The crime committed by Turell is vandalism.

    Prosecutors said he used a stolen BB gun to shoot up the windows of about a hundred cars.

    In addition to the jail time, Turell has been ordered to pay over 13 thousand dollars in victim compensation.

    When Judge Baugh asked Turell how he planned to come up with the money, the defendant offered that he currently worked at Burger King and made 9.50 an hour.

    To that the judge responded, "Why can't you get a real job?"

    Baugh is already facing suspension for his ruling in a separate case involving the rape of a 14-year-old girl.

    He gave the perpetrator what amounted to a 1-month sentence because he believed the girl contributed to the assault by ‘looking older than her chronological age’.

    Baugh begins his brief suspension on December 1st and does not plan to run for reelection afterwards.
