Genarlow Wilson is Free!
Villagers, we asked you earlier this year to tell us why Genarlow Wilson was still in prison. We thought that the Georgia prosecutors were fools for fighting against freedom for Genarlow Wilson.
So we are proud to beat the drums with the news that the young brother is free.
The Supreme Court set him free today. Here is a copy of the court order along with a video showing Genarlow Wilson leaving prison.
To be clear, the brother is no angel. Group sex with a 15-year old isn't something to be proud about. However, a 10-year jail sentence is cruel and unusual punishment. We knew that all along. The Georgia Supreme Court agreed with us today.
What are your thoughts on this case?
