I have been too busy to really join the fray on this case, although I have a couple posts on some of the issues involved. So, I'll just direct readers to Professor Berman's continuing excellent coverage at Sentencing Law and Policy:
As I suggested here, Wilson's case cries out for executive clemency and now I think David McDade should be the one leading the call for clemency for Genarlow Wilson. Without clemency, Wilson will surely be challenging his sentence in a federal habeas action. Wouldn't the people of Georgia be better served by helping Wilson get justice through a release than by having the state defend a sentence in federal court that no one thinks is just?
