Genarlow Wilson to attend Morehouse College

By CHANDLER BROWN
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 01/10/08

Genarlow Wilson will be heading to college courtesy of the Tom Joyner Foundation.

Wilson, the Douglasville teen who spent two years in prison for having consensual sex with a teenager, will attend Atlanta's Morehouse College this spring, courtesy of the Tom Joyner Foundation, an educational non-profit founded by the nationally syndicated radio personality. The foundation posted the announcement on its Web site Thursday morning.

The 10-year-old foundation is paying for Wilson's tuition, books and on-campus housing. The amount of the scholarship was not made public.

Wilson was freed from prison Oct. 26 after the Georgia Supreme Court ruled that his 10-year sentence for having consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old girl was "cruel and unusual punishment."

Wilson, who was 17 at the time of the incident, was convicted of felony aggravated child molestation. At the time, state law mandated a minimum 10-year sentence for the crime.

The Legislature eventually changed the law to make such cases a misdemeanor when they involved teenagers close in age.

B.J. Bernstein, Wilson's attorney who helped secure his release, said Wilson showed up at her office this week wearing a Morehouse ID badge around his neck.

"To see him replace the old prison ID badge with a badge from a prestigious [historically black college] was why Genarlow's mother and I fought so hard," Bernstein said. "This special moment in Genarlow's life became a reality because of the Tom Joyner Foundation."
