Brian Banks Interview

The former high school football star who was falsely accused of rape talks about his arrest and being faced with the decision of either taking a plea deal or going to trial, the latter of which could have resulted in life in prison. With his lawyer telling him they would lose because he was black and the jury would be white, Brian Banks decided to take the deal. His lawyer told him that after undergoing a 90-day observation at Chino State Prison, he would be reevaluated and she was sure the judge would release him. The judge didn't and instead gave him the maximum sentence of six years. The interview ends with Banks talking about his exoneration in 2012, after his accuser, Wanetta Gibson, confessed that she had lied. Related Article: Brian Banks: History vs. Hollywood
