Genarlow Wilson, honor student and football star, had consensual sex with a fellow teenager. What happened to him next was a crime.
When he was a senior in high school, he received oral sex from a 10th grader. He was 17. She was 15. Everyone, including the girl and the prosecution, agreed she initiated the act. But because of an archaic Georgia law, it was a misdemeanor for teenagers less than three years apart to have sexual intercourse, but a felony for the same kids to have oral sex.
Now he’s sitting in prison. He got ten years. Been there for two. And there’s not much anyone can do about it, although some are trying.
