Tawana Brawley cornered

Tawana Brawley, whose  rape deception 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions -- and made Rev. Al Sharpton nationally known— finally has been slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her.
“For at least 25 years, she has been living a major lie,” said former Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones, who was falsely accused of raping Brawley in 1987 and finally tracked her down. “To me, this has always been about responsibility and accountability,’’ added the former ADA, who won the $190,000 defamation lawsuit against Brawley, 40, now a nurse in Virginia, more than a decade ago.  The New York Post, which helped track her down, has the full story here.
