In 2002, Wanetta Gibson told authorities that Brian Banks, a talented Long Beach football player who was given a football scholarship to USC, raped her and because of that, Brian spent 6 years in jail, had to register as a sex offender, and lost his football career. Brian always maintained his innocence and a man in private investigator careers, Freddie Parish, always believed him. Freddie had the idea to get Wanetta to confess that this whole story was made up and that Brian was always truly innocent.
She agreed to an interview with both Brian and Freddie and was asked the hard questions.
Parish: “Did he rape you?”
Gibson: “No, he did not rape me.”
Parish: “Did he kidnap you?”
With that video, Brian was able to have his name cleared and get a second shot at football.
