Man’s victim confesses he never raped her after he served 6 years. After spending six years falsely imprisoned due to a rape charge, a high school football star experienced a breakthrough when the girl confessed that the rape never occurred. Overwhelmed with emotion, he broke down as the case was ultimately dismissed.
The girl, Wanetta Gibson, disclosed that she had fabricated the rape allegation only after being secretly recorded expressing her true motive – to sue her school district for financial gain. Her admission revealed that she had wrongfully accused an innocent man, resulting in six years of unjust imprisonment, all in pursuit of a $1.5 million payout from the district.
Wanetta Gibson falsely accused her former schoolmate, Brian Banks, of sexual assault when they were teenagers. However, when Banks had gotten out of jail, Gibson contacted Banks via Facebook and admitted to fabricating the story. This was recorded by a private investigator when they met. This admission sparked an investigation by the California Innocence Project (CIP), leading to Banks’ exoneration.
This revelation underscores the serious repercussions of false accusations and the devastating impact they can have on individuals’ lives.
