Brian Banks is the name of a man who at the age of 16 and still in high school had his whole life derailed over a false accusation of rape. After being tried as an adult he was thrown in jail for over five years, had to become a registered sex offender, lost all his friends, lost out on a promising sports career, and now has to wear a GPS tracker strapped to his ankle at all times. The woman who accused him was awarded $1.5 million dollars, spent it all, and is now on welfare. She has openly admitted it was all a lie, saying she just wanted attention from her friends. Despite this, she has received no punishment for her misdeeds.
Brian would like to create a documentary telling his story and hopefully open up discussion on how unfairly men are treated in these situations. As of this posting his Kickstarter project is only at $23,296 of its $40,000 goal. It only has 9 days to meet the deadline. I know it's a touchy subject and might not be appropriate for Giant Bomb, but it's a real world problem I think a lot more people should be aware of.
If you have a minute, please check out the Kickstarter page and consider backing the project.
