He was 17, about to go on full football scholarship to USC. A girlfriend claims he raped her. Brian Banks is advised to take a plea, and goes to prison for five years. But, he knows, he did not do it.
Six years later, Wanetta Gibson admits she lied. She collected 1.5 million in civil awards, and did not want to lose the cash. Banks gets cleared by a court and a project of students who uncover his innocence. He goes through the hell of misrepresentation, five years incarcerated and placed on a sex offenders list, even wore an ankle GPS.
So what of Ms. Gibson. Nowhere to be found–will the state prosecute her? Anyone want to bet on it?
