Woman who lied about rape asks for 'bygones to be bygones'

A Los Angeles teenager convicted of rape in 2002 has been cleared after his "victim" admitted lying.

Brian Banks was sentenced to ten years in prison for raping Wanetta Gibson when he was 16 years-old. He entered a 'no contest plea' and served five years.

Soon after he was released in 2007, Ms Gibson contacted him on facebook with the words "let bygones be bygones". She admitted he was innocent but was concerned she would have to pay back the $1.5m the school gave her in damages at the time.

She got $1.5m? She should give it all to Banks and still pay it back.
 
+Boony McHugh #2 and

or perhaps she should go to jail for the same amount of time what he served... that would be probably better then suing her for money... so she could see what he had to go through.... and all the time of his life lost!

I hope he will use this experience to teach others about injustice - perhaps be a speaker in schools or make a movie about it
