and she offered to help him clear his record, court records state.
But she refused to repeat the story to prosecutors because she feared she would have to return a $1.5 million payment from a civil suit brought by her mother against Long Beach schools.
During a second meeting that was secretly videotaped, she told Banks,
“’I will go through with helping you,
but it’s like at the same time all
that money they gave us, I mean gave me, I don’t want to have to pay it back,’”
according to Freddie Parish, a defense investigator who was at the meeting.It was uncertain whether Gibson will have to return the money and unlikely she would be prosecuted for making the false accusation so long ago, when she was 15.
So long ago? it was only ten years ago. Statute of limitations? Oh please! If you admit to the crime the Statute of Limitations does not apply.
The man served 5 years and 2 months in PRISON!
SHE got $1,500,000.00 to spend in the prime of her youth.
