UPDATE: I've just learned that the prosecution in this case has filed an appeal blocking Mr. Wilson's release. Someone please tell me where the justice is in doing such a thing.
I am so happy to see that common sesne has prevailed in this case. What a tragedy that this kid had to endure two years in a Georgia state prison for simply being a teenager. Read the Genarlow Wilson story HERE
ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- A judge in Monroe County, Georgia, ruled Monday that a 21-year-old should be released from a 10-year prison sentence he has been serving for a consensual sexual encounter he had as a teenager.
Monroe Superior Court Judge Thomas H. Wilson voided the sentence against Genarlow Wilson, who has been imprisoned for more than two years after his conviction for a sex act with a 15-year-old girl.
He was 17 at the time.
