Brian Banks’ accuser Wanetta Gibson sued the Long Beach Unified School District for not protecting her from getting raped and received $750,000. After Bank’s exoneration the school district sued Gibson, who has been ordered to pay a $2.6 million judgement.

Courtney Bisbee was released from Perryville Prison, AZ after serving her full sentence of 11 years; with 18 months parole added.
