Wanetta Gibson falsely accused Brian Banks of rape! She should be in jail and be made to pay restitution.

By Al Rava, NCFM Secretary

Last Thursday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark C. Kim overturned the decade-old forcible rape conviction against Brian Banks after his accuser Wanetta Gibson admitted she falsely accused Banks of the crime.  At the time of the false accusation, Banks was a 17-year-old football star at Long Beach Poly High School, who had verbally committed to playing for USC, and Gibson was a 15-year-old classmate.  Gibson said Banks raped her on school grounds, Banks said the sex was consensual.

Banks, represented by a public defender, agreed to a plea deal serving five years behind bars instead of risking a prison term of 41 years to life.  Only 17 at the time of the plea deal with little or no knowledge about the criminal justice system, Banks was not allowed to speak with his parents when offered the plea deal.

Recently, Wanetta Gibson reached out to Banks on Facebook, arranged a meeting where she admitted that she fabricated the rape accusation. Banks was accompanied at the meeting by a private investigator who recorded Gibson’s admission.

Shortly after Banks’ plea deal, Gibson’s mother, on behalf of her minor daughter, sued the Long Beach Unified School District for maintaining an unsafe environment.  The lawsuit resulted in Gibson receiving a $1.5-million settlement.

Unfortunately, Los Angeles County prosecutors do not plan to charge Gibson, now 24, for perjuring herself by making false accusations, because prosecutors claim it would be hard to prove their case. Perhaps because the private investigator’s recording would not be admissible in a criminal or civil case against Gibson.

The Long Beach Police Department has not opened an “official investigation” into Gibson’s false accusation, although it is communicating with prosecutors about Gibson’s actions.

During a recent interview with a San Diego radio station, Banks talked of visiting Sea World yesterday with his attorney’s family and how great it felt to be able to wear shorts in public.  He was able to wear shorts because his rape conviction had required him to register as a sex offender and wear an ankle monitor

Gibson admitted to falsely accusing Banks.  Regardless of whether the incriminating tape recording is admissible in a criminal or civil action, she should be charged with appropriate crimes. Charging her with perjury, filing a false police report, and whatever else applies at least establishes a criminal record.

Banks deserves some justice. Gibson deserves to be held accountable. Society deserves protection from such women.  It is inconceivable that no effort will be made to recover Gibson’s ill-gotten gains. Whoever in the District Attorney’s Office decided not to prosecute Gibson should be fired.

    I forgot to mention one more thing. If you have never read the book Picking Cotton, you should check it out at your library. It is about an innocent man who went to prison over a rape charge because of a mistaken identity. It is an amazing read, not only because the actual criminal ends up in the same ward as him but also how Ronald Cotton forgives his accuser and they now speak all over the country about this sort of thing.

    While I was at military tech school, there was a girl whose boyfriend saw me and this guy talking to her, and she claimed that we choked her and did all this crazy sexual harassment so that he wouldn’t try to fight us apparently. I got 2 days of insane punishment ala prison boot camp style for doing absolutely nothing but chatting with a random girl for 2 minutes. Now, this is nothing like serving 5 years in prison, but still this hit home for me and you can only imagine how many countless others this has happened to. Women like this need to understand that there are consequences, you can’t lie and victimize innocent men in order to massage your ego and bank. Shouldn’t they be charged with fraud?

      So what did you do to make her pay? Nothing I bet. Then you want to whine on here about injustice.
      Some bitch pulled a stunt like that on me she would regret it. And I would be a thousand miles away when it happened.

    Obama is the feminist-in-chief.

    What does a weirdo like Barrack Obama think of such cases? Or is he only a "pro-women " president?

    She needs to be held legally accountable to show women that if you wreck someones life, you need to suffer the consequences..same as men do..now that would be real "equality"

    This is the prime reason why when this actually DOES happen girls are not believed. I was drugged and raped 15 years ago and never told anyone. I knew that if I did they would say I was lying anyway. I would like to personally kick this slut in the vag for perpetrating this lie.

  12. Mad Dog Mike64806 on May 31, 2012 at 6:03 PM

    What I want to know is how and why is it neccessary to protect women and girls by completly destroying men and boys? women need to be held to a greater standard of accountability and responsibility, in our ever changing society. I think this lying bitch should do 10 to 25 years in prison for fraud and perjury.

File a Federal Complaint

If you have specific instances of discrimination against male domestic violence victims by any government-funded DV program anywhere in the U.S., please send all evidence you have to the following federal agencies as a complaint, and state that this violates United States Code, Title 42, Section 3789d(c)(1). Give them as much evidence as you can. They are supposed to investigate it. After several months you may get a letter back saying there is "insufficient evidence" and that they need more information such as dates and times of the discrimination, names of the programs and contact info, names and contact info of witnesses, documents or records, and a detailed chronological narrative. So, re regarding evidence, the more the better. You can send the complaints by email, mail, or both.
