Genarlow Wilson Appeal Traps Attorney General Thurbert Baker

Black advocates of Genarlow Wilson are celebrating here in Atlanta as the 17 year old sentenced to ten years in prison for having consensual sex with a white 15 year old had his sentence reduced from ten years to twelve months. The judge that reduced the sentence did something else as well. He changed the conviction to a misdemeanor from a felony.

This is illegal.

I don’t write that because I’m upset that Wilson isn’t stuck with the felony. The only reason I’m writing about this or that the thing ever went to trial in the first place is because this the racist United States of White America and Wilson was black while the 15 year old girl was white. I write that it is illegal because while the AP, the AJC and the rest of the corporate news mill attempt to avoid the story, the real deal here is that the white racist judge’s reduction of the sentence is a Georgia political move isn’t about Genarlow Wilson at all but a design to fuck the black Attorney General Thurbert Baker.

Don’t misunderstand. Thurbert Baker does not appear to be a very progressive politician. But he is black and in the US, no less Georgia, that is more than enough reason to oppose his assent to higher, more powerful political office. This illegal move of reducing the sentence forces Baker to uphold the law and appeal the action. There will be no mass media explanation of what is really happening here. Therefore, the effect will be black public opinion will turn against Baker, the black Attorney General seeking higher political office in this racist pisspot of a state. While Baker understands what the white boy political structure is doing to him, he can’t explicitly talk about it lest he be labeled a conspiracy theorist which would be the end of his political career. Baker did have a letter printed in the AJC today to attempt to offset the racist full court press attempting to hide the real story,

As Attorney General, it is my responsibility to follow the laws of Georgia as they are written, not how some may wish they were written.

Monroe County Superior Court Judge Thomas Wilson’s order struck Genarlow Wilson’s original sentence, and then purportedly went on to sentence Wilson to a misdemeanor. The law in Georgia is clear that while a habeas court may grant habeas relief, there is absolutely no authority for a habeas court to reduce or modify the judgment of the trial court, in this case, the Superior Court of Douglas County.

I have attempted to bring the defense lawyers and Douglas County prosecuting attorneys together in hopes of reaching a resolution. As recently as this past weekend, the Douglas County District Attorney’s office offered Wilson’s attorneys a plea deal that would have allowed Wilson to plead to first-offender treatment, which would mean he would not have a criminal record nor would be subject to registering on the sex offender registry once his sentence has been completed. The plea deal could also result in him receiving a sentence substantially shorter than the 10-year mandatory minimum sentence for which he was originally sentenced, possibly leading to his release based upon time already served. Wilson, through his attorneys, rejected all of those offers.

To be clear, I am not a fan of Thurbert Baker, but in the context of the racist trap set for him by the establishment here in Georgia, I’m his biggest fan in as far I can help get the real story, the complete story, out. We need to know who our enemies are and not be turned against each other and against those who aren’t enemies and could be conditional allies. Political figures like Thurbert Baker. Will be watching this one.

  1. ERICA WILLIAMS Says:

    Race for neither Genarlow or Baker should be an issue in this case or any case for that matter.
    This is a repeat, continual problem with our justice system.
    How can we, the black community, expect justice or fair treatment from “white america” when we can’t get it from our own black law makers, lawyers and politicians?

  2. I agree that race shouldn’t be an issue. But we should have the honesty to admit that it is. In fact, it is the driving issue in this particular case.

    It’s also important to make the distinction between the people as in regular folks and the politicians of Atlanta who often, whether white or black, are not ‘ours’.

    Follow me? Look at Vernon Jones. Look at what Shirley Franklin is doing to ‘our’ homeless population. Look at the votes of David Scott and Sanford Bishop. WIth a few exceptions (Vincent Fort, Tyrone Brooks, Mangham) look at the entire black sector of the General Assembly.

    Being black doesn’t make them ‘our’ law makers, unfortunately. And the only way we are going to get white Amerikkka to agree to justice is by making them do it. Just like always. They never GIVE anything.
