Brian Banks’ False Rape Accuser Ordered to pay $2.6M
No debt in the universe goes unpaid. Now Wanetta Gibson is going to find that out the hard way.
Wanetta Gibson accused Banks in 2002 when the two attended Long Beach (Calif.) Poly High, where Banks was a star prep prospect. Banks was convicted of rape, lost his USC scholarship and landed in jail, and Gibson sued the Long Beach Unified School District for being unsafe and won a $1.5 million judgment.
Gibson later confessed that she lied and Banks was released in 2012. Gibson must repay a $750,000 settlement to the LBUSD plus attorney fees, interest and more than $1 million in punitive damages.
Ms. Gibson basically ruined this man’s life so it’s the least she deserves. She took advantage of the system and now the system is going to take advantage of her.
