Genarlow Wilson freed

2007-10-26 14:08:30.490073+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

The Georgia Supreme Court has released Genarlow Wilson after two years in prison (alternate article). He'd previously had charges downgraded from a 10 year felony to a misdemeanor. Genarlow Wilson was initially convicted and sentenced to ten years in jail for having consensual oral sex with a 15 year old when he was 17, has been used on both sides for political manipulations, and arguably saw a Georgia prosecutor apparently distributing child pornography.

The truly unbelievable aspect of this case (unless you live in Georgia) is that the state supreme court was nearly evenly divided on the verdict.

Georgia - reddest of the red, densest of the dense. Despite recent yankeefication of the greater Atlanta area, Georgia at large is still the demesne of the ignorant cracker.
