Brian Banks, Man Falsely Accused of Rape, Signs with a Pro Football Team | criminology economic theory | Scoop.it

Brian Banks was a high school football star, when false rape allegations destroyed his entire life.  He was sent to prison for five years, and only released from a California prison after his accuser confessed that she made the whole thing up.

It’s unfortunate that Mr. Banks was wrongly accused for a crime that he didn’t commit – complete injustice for Banks and his family, to say the least. I’m left to wonder if the accuser will serve any time in jail for her false accusations. I think she should. Mr. Banks wasted invaluable time in prison for something he didn’t do as have many other falsely accused men. I hope Mr. Banks is able to pick up where he left off and succeed in his future athletic endeavors. He deserves a break.
