(CNN) — A mother in Montana is outraged that a high school teacher who admitted raping her 14-year-old daughter received only a month in prison, while her daughter took her own life.

“I think this sentence is a joke, a travesty,” the mother, Auliea Hanlon, told CNN on Tuesday night, a day after the sentencing.

“People will lose faith in our justice system. I have.”

Hanlon said she was particularly upset that the sentencing judge, G. Todd Baugh, said her daughter “seemed older than her chronological age” and was “as much in control of the situation” as the teacher.

Baugh later acknowledged to CNN that “that was not the best choice of words.”
