LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Long Beach Unified School District has won a $2.6 million judgment against a woman who falsely accused a former high school football star of rape that landed him in jail.

The Long Beach Press-Telegram reports the default judgment recoups a $750,000 settlement paid to Wanetta Gibson and also includes attorneys’ fees, interest and $1 million in punitive damages.

Gibson’s whereabouts aren’t known. The ruling allows the school district to get the money through her future wages and property.

Gibson was 15 when she accused Brian Banks of attacking her on campus. He insisted the sexual contact with Gibson was consensual, but pleaded no contest to forcible rape and spent more than five years in prison.

He was exonerated last year and has signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons.

    She needs to be made an example of so some of these “gold digging hood hooches” chasing after athletes and celebrates may think twice

    How about taking what money can be recovered and give it to the man and also sentence her to double the amount of time this man has spent in jail for her deceitful lies. She needs to pay for ruining someone’s life which he can never recover especially being incarcerated. It will send a stern message to anyone else who thinks about committing this atrocity.
