An all-white jury in Kansas just sentenced a black male, Albert N. Wilson, because 3 years ago the now 23 year old, then 20 year old, met a white teen, then 17 years old, in a bar called the Jayhawk Cafe for adults 21 years or older. The two ended up making out with each other after having drinks at the bar and that has landed Wilson in jail for a 12 year sentence.
On April 3, 2019, the Douglas County District Judge Sally Pokorny sentenced Wilson, a college graduate, to just over 12 years in prison for kissing and making out with the then 17 year-old white teen.
DNA test(s) concluded that intercourse hadn’t taken place nor bodily fluids was found on the victim according to a scientist with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, who spoke during the trial. The only thing that was found on the alleged victim’s body was his saliva.
The alleged rape occurred in September 2016 where the victim was examined. Reportedly, swab analysis was done validating there was no sexual intercourse.
The alleged rape wasn’t reported to police until a month later in October 2016.
Many are calling the incident and sentencing an example of injustice to African-Americans.
An example of a comparison is a case involving a white male, Brock Turner, then 22, who was sentenced in June 2016 to a merely 6-months for raping an unconscious woman. Turner ended up only serving 3-months of his 6-month sentence.
Currently, a petition is in place to help support Albert Wilson and the injustice that he is facing. The petition which is online at change.org currently has a little over 26,000 of the 35,000 signatures goal.

How did this 17 yr kid get into the 21 and older bar in the first place? How is he being charged for an act that was never committed? I need answers
This is racism at it’s worse. The punishment for kissing is 12 years?? That’s a crime?! The sentencing judge needs to be removed and sent to jail immediately. He is not performing up to the level required of a judge. And that young man must go free immediately! #StandUpMemphis
Some states have sentencing guidelines that once convicted would have given the judge no choice in the sentence. I therefore am not as outraged by the sentence as I am by the actual conviction.
this is so wrong the judge should be fired from the bench when white men rape black women they only get 6 months who is the judge here. MrJay matterson i Agree with you 100%. its time we Africian Amercians stand up and fight back for our rights now this s--t have to stop
A white boy raped a white girl behind a garbage can and only received 3 months in prison. Why was a 13 yr at bar? His parents needs to sue the Establishment. Then free their son with the money. He has appeals to file! Immediately .
This is pure “BULL***T”.. I guess the world and the Government still has a TON of growing up to do, I Can’t Believe This S**T Is Still Going On In This World…What A Shame, “This Man Is Going To Jail For A Kiss”…RIDICULOUS,APPALLING AND I’M ASHAMED OF OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM…” A KISS”.. REALLY..??
Age of consent in Kansas is 16…
His is wrong and unjust beyond words.
This young man should not get 12 years. The young lady lied about her age so he was unaware. This judgement is wrong and unconstitutional in my opinion.
My daughter was 17 and some KWU guy was 20, I told the police and he said they couldn’t do anything because she was 17 and of legal consenting age. Oh and that was here in Kansas and they actually had sex. WTF.
Why was she in the bar she was not 21 what is going to happen to the bar owner for allowing and serving a minor. It’s not fair that he be charged with rape she had to lie about her age the bar said 21 not 17 so she should be held responsible just as well as the other people she was with
It’s a little weird if they let someone else 17 in a bar but she wasn’t 16 I would understand that if she was 18 it will be fine but she’s 17 he’s 21 she’s in a bar a 21+ bar I’m putting too many things together that shows he didn’t ask for age he just thought she was in his age range because of the place there in time the setting, these things matter the fact that he’s spending up to jail time for making out with someone that is 17 and not 16 or in a bar that’s 21 and plus a little crazy and I think overdoing it.
I believe it is a shame when anyone goes free having committed a rape. Not all white men go free. But, sadly, the rape culture is alive and well, under reported and under prosecuted. However, I think this article misleads. It states no fluids were found other than saliva on the clothing and in another statement it says it was not reported for a month. I believe that this article leaves out far too much. If the incident was not reported for a month, I assume she would have showered many times in the month and no fluids were able to be collected from her body. Just because she only had saliva on her clothing does not mean there was not a rape. I withhold an opinion with the lack of information regarding this case.
This article lacks details. He didn’t get 12 years for kissing her and sexual assault doesn’t have to leave a semen trail.
This is crazy and a total disreguards for people of colour as it relates to their rights as human being.
No hate like southern hate…
Pro Bono Attorneys Needed…..PLEASE help this young Man….From reading this Artical, this young man is being punished for being Black…
A KISS IS NOT RAPE..
This young man has a college degree…His life is being destroyed by some racist A-s Judge and the all white racist A-s jury’s….
THE YOUNG WOMEN SHOULD GO TO JAIL.THE YOUNG MAN DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG.JUST HAD A FUN EVENING WITH THIS YOUNG WOMEN.AND GIVE HIM 12YEARS IN JAIL.THIS IS WRONG.INJUSTICE.
That is crazy especially when the age of consent (meaning the age where you are allowed to agree to sexual intercourse) in Kansas is 16…
I do not see anywhere in this article that says female. Everything I read says minor teen.
This is totally ridiculous. This isn’t the first time a white girl goes after a young handsome young man. She has no morals, and needed to teach her daughter not to be running after, and throwing herself after him. Teach your daughter how to be respectful of others.
Why? Leave him tf alone. Y’all f-----g yup his future. Lock that 17yrs old b up wtf
So she obviously had fake ID, borrowed someones ID to get into the bar or the bouncers or security let her in because they know her. If you are in a bar are you going to be able to tell if someone is 17 or even 21 just by looking at them …. Probably not. This case needs to be thrown out and Albert Wilson or the District Attorney needs to sue the bar for letting in a minor and putting the clientele at risk of engaging a minor who broke the law, end of story. Oh and biggest fact of all he didn’t rape her.
This is so a racist action. This young man kissed her and she was in an adult drinking establishment. I would not have stopped and asked for ID in such s place.
He did not rape her he kissed her. And all the rest show this. Community service if anything should have been the punishment.
First, we don’t know if the teen is male or female. Secondly, you seem overly eager to blame the minor, asserting facts not at all in evidence. Where does it say the minor threw themself at the man? That she/he has no morals? That he/she has a mother at all? That the minor’s mother didn’t teach the minor to have respect? For him to get such a long sentence says there is more to this story than what is in this article. And what is up with the bar serving an underaged boy or girl? They should lose their liquor license.
The whole thing is warped, not impressed,
The judge is the one that should be put in jail. Maybe local media can put on enough pressure to get her removed from the bench. Keep up the protests, yell and scream until you can’t anymore, stomp, bang, march and make as much noise as you can, because law enforcement and the “justice” system cannot hear, will not hear the truth. They are so full of themselves and the power they think they have over everyone, especially minorities, that they will listen to no one. And…….change their mind and act like a human being…….NEVER.
For those of you saying it is because he was in the south, Kansas is not a southern state but that is neither here nor there. This sentence is ridiculous, he shouldn’t have been sent to jail or prison. Sounds like the judge I a bleeding heart liberal and supports the “Me Too” movement so the woman had to be telling the truth.
This judge should be given a life sentence for abusing his power. This Kid did nothing wrong, but because he’s black his life is now ruined and he’s destined to be a statistic once out of prison. This is an unbelievable bunch of b------t and needs to be addressed by our nations top leaders. What kind of people sit back and allow this man to receive 12 f-----g years for saliva on a 17 year old woman who thought it’d be cool to get into a 21 up club, but couldn’t handle her alcohol and was embarrassed the next day after realizing what had happened and who might have seen it. To save face she cries rape. Happens everyday in this country, and it makes me sick. I’m White, and this man is black, and I don’t give 2 s---s about someone’s color or ethnic background, right is right, wrong is wrong, and this is nothing but wrong. I hate the judge and the 12 white jurors because the represent what won’t die in this country, ignorant, racist, white trash, mother f-----s. God will judge all of you one at a time, and if you think it’s getting hot outside now that summers on its way, woowee, do you guys and gals have a hell of a time coming for your eternity. If they’ve published the judges name, good. If they haven’t whatvthe f--k are y’all afraid of? He should have to defend his 12 year sentence, but he won’t because he’s the worst kind of piece of s--t there is. I hope I meet him one day.
After reading the headline, I thought “If this is a true story, I’ll bet that the girl was white”. ‘Nuff said…
Miscarriage of justice!
How the f*** shes a victim? They only kiss and she lied about her age.
Typical of what is done to black males. Obviously no tape.
How was the girl punished.. Did she get the same amount of jail time?
Well, it wasn’t like she was so much younger than he was in the first place! 2nd, they were both in a nightclub they shouldn’t have been in because they were under 21! He probably had recently turned 20, so just a few months or less then a year as a teenager hisself! Clearly, the sentence he received had everything to do with his blackness, as opposed to the age difference. And a 12 year sentence when the exam proved no rape had occurred! Straight up racist b*llsh*t!
There really nothing to say its f-k up. Look at the WORLD and childs by black and white couples.
Seriously! TheSouth does it again! Not all southerners fall in this category, but since trump supports this type of behavior they are coming out of the woodwork! Ignorance prevails!!!
Facts: 21 bar. Whose in the wrong? The dumb a-s girl! He’s a college graduate! No body fluids folks! Just salvia from kissing. Screw up productive citizens life for the roots of southern hatred!
Kansas is not the South! This just goes to show you that regional stereotyping isn’t always so smart.
“but since trump supports this kind of behavior…..”
dear god are you f-----g kidding me? where the hell are you getting these accusations from. and you want to talk about ignorance prevailing???
I think what happened to this man is absolute b------t and they should give him another chance at trial and have him released. this sentencing is 100% an act of racism, and i stand by the african american community strongly. but i am a trump supporter. trump is not a racist, the media makes him out to be. you should see all the things he does for the african american community behind the scenes that the media doesn’t show. the fact you need to bring trump into this and say he supports this b------t is the absolute definition of ignorance.
How is it rape if no one had intercourse with her and she was somewhere she shouldnt have been. Her parents are who should be looked at because she would of not been kissing no one if she was at home and not lying about her age
The case is absurd. The “judge” is not at all fair, and should lose his license to practice. This case should have never gone to trial. You would never believe this could happem today. What happened to a jury of your peers. ALL WHITE JURY! REALLY!
I’ll bet this isn’t the first black guy the white girl has kissed, or has been with in a sexual way. I’ll bet her parents has taught her to stay away from black people, and her parents are probably well known in the community and they’re making a big issue to teach other black guys a lesson, so of course they’re gonna say he raped her. The parents sound very influential to high caliber working people, like police and judges that will let them have their way, when they can’t stop what she really like in a man. Color shouldn’t matter, but it does in parts of this country, smh. What’s gonna happen when she give them a black grand child. She does what she want, because she’s a grown woman with her own choices in life.
This is so wrong, and where does this ever end. No woman deserves to be raped, kissed, handled disrespectfully by any person, but this lady was 17 and clearly knew she was not supposed to be in a location where you must be 21. This is terrible for all men who are criticized by women that judge us for asking your age. This is the reason right here! A woman at a location where she should NOT be and the guy getting in trouble because she is a minor. She gets off with nothing and this mans life is ruined. 😡 This judge unfortunately is racist too….
I’m sure there are white girls in this city that’s been with a black guy who’s had intercourse and even have children with a black guy. I don’t think there is a state in this country that don’t have a child with a black person. How many slaves has had children by slave owners, and especially been raped by them across the map. I think this is an isolated case of someone who’s parent/ parents is supremacist and want him to pay the price for putting his lips on their white daughter that enjoyed it.
Is this real?He needs support.The judge is a fake.His family needed a better lawyer.Praying he keeps his head and courage up.He will get through this,with Gods help.
The judge needs to be fired
They set you up, playa
He has a strong case that can easily sue the county & district attorney for false imprisonment. A good civil lawyer with strong jurisdiction law background is needed. Its injustice to give 12 years on this Bull crap….I have so many questions about this SMH 🙊
Exactly why I take the turnpike through Kansas and admire God’s lands from afar NEVER stop just keep passing through.
This is just absurd. Why did she file rape charge, let’s see someone in the bar saw her and decided to tell daddy. So outrageous the way laws can be bent based on the color of your skin!
Say it isn’t so! 12 years? So his sentence for not raping a white gal who he consentually engaged in is longer than a white man raping a woman. How did this happen?
Where is the damn lying b---h who was underage in the over 21 club? Did she give evidence? Did she cry rape? And why? Who defended him? Were the jury all KKK members? I WANT ANSWERS.
Knowing the History of Amerikkka he should have known better. The crime doesn’t fit the punishment, but it never does in Amerikkka for black citizens. The kid was smart enough to graduate college he should have saw the red flags and left that white girl at the bar, especially in the south the white female is forbidden fruit. I’m sure he has been groomed by his parents since birth to stay away from white girls at college. So we all as BLACK Amerikkkans know the inherent risk that comes with interracial dating. He assumed the risk. There is no jury of your peers that the white court will allow to judge your case. I feel sorry but he was played with his own life.
How is it considered rape when there was no signs of intercourse. Black men y’all need to leave these white women alone. Who was his lawyer. I bet he had a public defender
How the hell do you rape someone when there was no signs of intercourse.
