10 Years for That?

Young man in consensual sex case leaves prison
Georgia court ordered Wilson released, ruled 10-year sentence was cruel

I don't condone the actions of this young man who participated in consensual sex acts in a hotel room with 15-year-old and a 17-year-old young ladies. Nor do I condone the actions of those young ladies nor anyone else participating in that party.

But, giving a 17-year-old young man a 10-year sentence for having consensual sex with another teen is outrageous. That sentence was put in place to punish adults who prey on children. That is hardly the case with this young man.

I'm glad he's been released. I pray he will be able to put his past behind him and make a fresh start.
