BILLINGS, Mont. – According to Montana District Judge G. Todd Baugh, working in a fast food chain is not a real job.

According to prosecutors, Brandon Daniel Turell, 21, and a co-defendant used a stolen BB gun to shoot out the windows of 100 vehicles in December 2012.

When Baugh asked Turell what he was doing to repay his victims, Turell responded that he had been working at Burger King, where he said he was making $9.50 an hour.

Upon hearing of Turell’s employment, Baugh replied, “Why can’t you get a real job?”

Baugh is separately facing public censure and suspension for noting that a 14-year-old who had been the victim of a rape appeared “older than her chronological age.”
