California Exonoree and NFL Free Agent

Falsely accused and sent to prison for a rape he did not commit, Brian left behind a football scholarship to USC and his NFL aspirations. Proven innocent & fully exonerated 10 years later, Brian’s story (soon to be made into a Hollywood movie) is one of perseverance and the ultimate comeback.
