From Jail To The NFL

From Jail To The NFL

After spending 5 years in jail, falsely accused of rape, Brian Banks signs with a United Football League team.  Based on what we now know, it’s pretty easy to create an alternate universe in which former high school star linebacker Brian Banks goes to a major college, becomes a stud at the NCAA level, and then goes on to make a pretty serious dent in the NFL. Of course, none of that ever happened, because when Banks was 16 years old, he was accused and then convicted of a rape he didn’t commit. He spent five years in prison after pleading no contest to the charge, and spent five more years on probation. It wasn’t until last year, when the woman who accused him of the crime requested that he become her friend on Facebook, that Banks had his way to exoneration. Banks agreed to meet with his false accuser, got her recorded admission that the charges were not real, and finally saw all charges dropped and his freedom regained last week.
