Brian Banks

The story of Brian Banks is a sad one to be frank. He was a solid High School linebacker, who had plans to attend USC, when he was accused of rape by the woman below, Wanetta Gibson.

Thanks to some terrible advice by his attorney and the prosecutor ignoring all the facts in the case, Banks spend several years in jail. Once released, Gibson reached out to Banks and admitted that she had lied, so she and her mother could sue the school district for $1.5 million.

Gibson and her mother blew through all the money. They are now broke and have went into hiding. Banks has been pursuing his NFL dream since that time. He had a couple of looks last year, but nothing concrete, but the Atlanta Falcons will give him a shot this year.

Good luck to him.
