Justice for Genarlow Wilson

On Monday, a judge finally dismissed the sentence of Genarlow
Wilson--the honor roll student and homecoming king serving ten years
in prison for having consensual oral sex with a 15 year old when he was 17. Immediately after the ruling, Thurbert Baker, Georgia's Attorney General appealed it--leaving Wilson stuck in jail.

We can't let this innocent young man spend another minute in jail. If you're as puzzled as I am by all of this, then here are some steps we all can make to fight for justice for Genarlow.
