    Former inmate exonerated in rape case joins pro football team

    ...Then he was accused of rape. Fearing a potentially long sentence, he followed the advice of his attorney and pleaded no contest to assaulting a classmate.

    But he maintained his innocence throughout nearly six years of imprisonment, subsequent probation and registration as a sex offender.

    And, according to the California Innocence Project, the woman later admitted that Banks had not kidnapped or raped her during a consensual encounter....


    It's stuff like this that makes some people look sideways at women who claim rape. It appears nothing is going to happen to her for filing a false police report and depriving this kid of several years of life. :maddening:

    She should have to do at least twice the amount of time he did!
