Victim's parents outraged by judge's comment

BREATHITT COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A former Kentucky middle school teacher has been sentenced for sexually abusing one of his students, but the victim's family is outraged over the judge's comments.

Judge Frank Fletcher with the Breathitt Circuit Court made a comment concerning dress code, "What is the dress code of some of these students as to how they can present to school in terms of blouses and length of skirts?"

Judge Fletcher later apologized and said he gave Charles Mitchell the maximum sentence after taking a plea deal.

Mitchell is eligible for shock probation.
