More than twenty years later, Tawana Brawley began paying back the man she accused of kidnapping and raping her. Tawana Brawley has paid just over $3,700 to former county prosecutor Steven Pagones, the New York Post reported. Pagones won a claim against her and her advisers, including the Rev. Al Sharpton, after Pagones was named as an attacker.
Brawley went missing from her home in Wappingers Falls, New York when she was 15. After she was found, she claimed she had been abducted and sexually assaulted by white men, including at least one police officer, who smeared her with feces and scrawled racial epithets on her body.
The case quickly made headlines and drew the attention of Sharpton, who became an outspoken advocate for the teen. -- CBS NEWS.
