The lead plaintiff in a federal lawsuit that seeks to overturn parts of Georgia's sex-offender registry law is now trying to eliminate her classification as a sex offender.
Wendy Whitaker's status as an offender violates the Constitution's guarantee against cruel and unusual punishment, says her new lawsuit, filed Friday in Columbia County Superior Court.
Whitaker, 29, is on the registry for having consensual oral sex with a classmate three weeks before his 16th birthday. Whitaker had just turned 17. Both were high school sophomores.
