Why Is Genarlow Wilson In Prison?
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 Year’s 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.

"convicted him of Aggravated Child Molestation for a voluntary act of oral sex"

Ήθελε, δεν ήθελε θα καταδικαζόταν το αγόρι. Η παρανοϊκότητα του νομικού συστήματος σε όλο του το μεγαλείο

Επιπροσθέτως, από το σχετικό άρθρο της Γουικιπαίδειας:
On December 21, 2006, the New York Times published an editorial[5] condemning the Georgia Supreme Court's decision, noting that Wilson was not a sexual predator, and that his behaviour would have only been a misdemeanor if he had actually had sex with the girl, instead of having had oral sex (due to a loophole in the applicable law's provision intended to prevent exactly this kind of dubious conviction). Oral sex has long had a special criminal status in Georgia law; until 1998, oral sex even between husband and wife was punishable with up to 20 years in prison.
