This happened to my boyfriend and it is horrible. Of course his case was different, he was 19 and the girl was 16, to be 17 in a month. They actually didn't even have "sex" but just fooled around. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison in California, of which he ended up serving two years. He later received a pardon from the Governator, but it changed him forever. I feel for Genarlow Wilson-it is absolutely outrageous that he is still in prison, or that he even went to begin with.
I signed his petition a while back when I first saw it. I hope that he is out soon and able to put this hideous miscarriage of justice behind him.
