Student Released in Georgia Teen Sex Case

Genarlow Wilson, a high-school student sentenced to 10 years in prison for engaging in consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old girl, was released from prison on Friday after serving two years of his term. In a 4-3 decision, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled Wilson's sentence "cruel and unusual punishment."
