Brian Banks, a star high school football player, was falsely accused of rape by a female acquaintance. Banks served five years in prison and was required to register as a sex offender. The accuser received a $1.5 million settlement from the school.
Last year, Banks logged onto Facebook and had a friend request from his accuser, Wanetta Gibson!
Private investigator Freddie Parish hid two cameras to record statements by Gibson when she met with Banks in the investigator’s office. “Did he rape you?,” asked Parish. “No,” Gibson said, “he did not rape me.” “All that money they gave us, I mean gave me, I don’t want to have to pay it back, all of it, because that would take a long time,” Gibson said on camera.
A judge overturned Banks’ conviction. One month later, Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE) is charging Los Angeles County prosecutors with unacceptable delay in filing perjury charges against Gibson. A vigorous prosecution of Gibson is critical to restoring the credibility of true rape victims.
