Rarely do I cut and paste enything, but this is ludicrous Why Is Genarlow Wilson In Prison?? Sign online petition UPDATE See video of Genarlow's attorney talking about the case on FOX News DaySide (scroll down to 'As Seen on DaySide') Could this happen to your child? Your brother? Your friend? Genarlow Wilson sits in prison despite being a good son, a good athlete and high school student with a 3.2 GPA He never had any criminal trouble. On the day he was to sit for the SAT, at seventeen years old, his life changed forever. He was arrested. In Douglas County he was accused of inappropriate sexual acts at a News Yearâs Eve party. A jury acquitted him of the allegation of Rape but convicted him of Aggravated Child Molestation for a voluntary act of oral sex with another teenager. He was 17 and she was 15. Along with the label âchild molesterâ which would require him throughout his life to be on a sexual offender registry, Genarlow received a sentence of eleven years â a mandatory 10 years in prison and one 1 year on probation. Strangely, in Georgia two teens can have intercourse and it is a misdemeanor but if they engage in oral sex, it is a felony which mandates a minimum of 10 years in prison. If two teens engaged in heavy petting, that could be felony Child Molestation. ABC Chief Legal Correspondent Chris Cuomo interviewed Genarlow in prison on PrimeTime Live. You were able to hear from Genarlow yourself and realize the grave injustice of his ten year prison sentence. There is an online poll and message board at the ABC website. The January 2006 issue of Atlanta Magazine provides a full account of the injustice and problem with Georgia law.
