Legal Sanity Returns to Georgia

At least in one case. The Georgia Supreme Court has finally managed to get a young man out of prison for the crime of having oral sex when he was 17 and the girl was 15. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and has already served 3 years. The state legislature changed the law after that case to make it a misdemeanor, but it took the state high court declaring a 10 year sentence to be cruel and unusual to get this guy out of jail.
