The Law Is An Ass-3

"A former high school football star given 10 yers in prison for having consensual oral sex with another teenager was freed Friday by Georgia's highest court, which ruled that his sentence amounted to cruel and ususual punishment. ... In its 4-3 decision, the Georgia Supreme Court noted that state lawmakers has scrapped the law that required a minimum 10-year prison term. His sentence was denounced even by members of the jury that convicted him", Houston Chronicle, 27 October.

10 years for a 17-year old being fellated by a 15-year old? This is outrageous. It shows that Georgia has too many police and prosecutors that they could waste time on such nonsense. That the ruling reducing his sentence was 4-3 is also disgusting.
