Glad to see an end to this story.
That girl's legal now. He should look her up for some victory knob.
My legislators are assholes.
it's pretty stupid. he should never have been charged to begin with. when i was 17 i went out with a 14 year old for a while, but that's not illegal here. it's not like he's one of those 30 year old men they're hunting down on dateline nbc.
I recall reading (or hearing on the news) that if he would've had sexual intercourse with the girl instead of oral sex he would not be in this situation. So somehow, according to the way the laws were written, oral sex was a worse offense than sex.
So, how long before he sells his life story to "Law & Order???"
Oral sex is, or at least was, illegal in Georgia - maybe squirrelcar can confirm or refute this. I hated it for this kid, he really did nothing wrong. It was stupidity that locked him up and a lack of common sense on the side of the judicial or law enforcement personnel.
Bout time! Too bad two years of his life was stolen from him though.
Good to see some justice.
I really felt bad for the guy.
Exactly. Don't hate the guy for gettin' some nookie. We all need nookie. As long as it isn't 30yr. old guy hittin' on 12 yr old girl perv nookie.
Sodomy, which included oral sex, used to be illegal--in a bunch of states (including Alabama). Actually still is in the Army--technically I can't have any sex 'cept missionary, but whatever. Not anymore in GA, though, not for a while.
Anyways, the deal was that he was accused of rape. But the sex was determined to be consensual, so that was dropped. Unfortunately, on the same tapethat showed him having the consensual sex, he also receieved a blowjob. And the law was weird in that getting a blowjob from an underage female was considered aggravated child molestation. And yet the sex...wasn't. Just a twisted way the laws were set up.
So he was convicted of aggravated child molestation, which was one of GA's "7 Deadly Sins," these seven laws that had automatic ten year sentences as part of this anti-crime push a while back.
So yeah, weird, and a lot of bullshit. Fucking a drunk 14 year old when you're 17 at a party, with a bunch of other guys getting in on the fun, is skeezy, definitely. And even if she consents, maybe it should be a little illegal. Depending on the circumstances, I suppose. But I just don't see how it can be 10 years, no parole, no appeal. That's crazy.
Yes. Pretty much the entire southern US. I thought the laws had been changed recently, so that is a positive.
I understand the purpose for the laws, but laws this binding with no further legal recourse can be very detrimental.
Glad to see it is finally at an end.
Btw, people need to stick to normal names. I glanced at the title and saw "General Wilson"
Me>...who is that?
Restored a little bit of my faith in the justice system. Is he getting a total pardon or will he be a free man whose name is on the sex offender list?
That's what i was just wondering. If he's gonna be listed, sucks for him. Can you imagine the "what are you in for" discusions he had?
I was very happy when I heard this on the news. I'm glad that true justice finally won out.
So when I was 18 I dated a 15 old, so that in the US would get me a ticket to jail?
Hopefully he was kept away from the general population.
It's not the dating part it's the sexual relations part specificly Sodomy. If you had fucked that chick in many(most) of the stes of the US you could be charged with any number of sex based crimes. it's a state by state thing which imo is stupid as hell.
Well, I dind´t slept with her, but if I did, not harm would come to me since it would be consesual. Heck I see dozens of couples of diferent ages. Portugal is far more relaxed when comes to that kind of law.
Here 16 year old girls prefer dating 20+ guys over guys their age. It´s an unwritten law.
