Brian Banks to Speak at ACSOL Conference

Brian Banks, who was convicted of a crime he did not commit and who experienced five years in prison
as well as the punishment of being required to register as a sex offender, has agreed to speak at this
year’s ACSOL conference on Friday, May 29.  Banks will join his attorney Justin Brooks, leader of the CA
Innocence Project, in a joint presentation about the legal fight that ended in Banks’ removal from the
registry as well as exoneration.

Both Banks and Brooks are featured in the recently released movie, Brian Banks, which highlights the
challenges Banks faced both inside and outside of prison.  The movie will be screened at the conference
prior to their presentation.

As a high school student, Banks was a star football player in Long Beach who was offered a football
scholarship at the University of Southern California (USC).  The USC scholarship was revoked, however,
after Banks was accused of raping a fellow high school student.  Banks was convicted of that offense
despite the lack of physical evidence and sentenced to prison.

Upon his release from prison, Banks was required to register as a sex offender and placed on
parole.  The movie highlights several of the challenges Banks faced while on parole, including
employment and playing football.

Banks achieved his goal of playing for the National Football League (NFL) when he signed with the
Atlanta Falcons on April 3, 2013.  He played four preseason games with that team before being released
from the team.  Banks subsequently spoke to the 2014 NFL draft rookie symposium and was later hired
by the NFL Department of Operations.

    We are honored that Brian Banks has agreed to join this year’s ACSOL conference! As a speaker, he will share the challenges he faced when required to register, including parole conditions, employment and social interactions. He will also share what it feels like after his requirement to register was terminated, a feeling that many are expected to experience next year after the Tiered Registry Law takes effect.
