QuizLaw Update …

Genarlow-Wilson.jpgUpdating a story we ran last week, Genarlow Wilson, a 17-year-old boy who was sentenced to ten years of prison for having consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old, had his sentence tossed today. The judge in the case wrote, “If this court or any court cannot recognize the injustice of what has occurred here, then our court system has lost sight of the goal our judicial system has always strived to accomplish … justice being served in a fair and equal manner.”

Wilson had already spent two years in prison for the crime, which had been downgraded to a misdemeanor after his felony conviction. Under the judge’s ruling, Wilson will not have to register as a sex offender, either. The attorney general, who clearly doesn’t know the meaning of “injustice,” has filed an appeal in the hopes of preventing Wilson’s immediate release.

The AG needs a boot up his ass.

If the AG really thinks this is a crime punishable by prison he better pony up some major dough for all of the new institutions that'll be needed to hold all of the "felons" that are out there. Maybe just converting the schools into prisons would do the trick?

He was just released by the Georgia court. Here is the link to the yahoo news article. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071026/ap_on_re_us/teen_sex_case
