Tawana Brawley Served With Court Papers

Tawana Brawley

In 1987 at the age of 15, Tawana Brawley made national headlines when she accused six White men, some of whom were police officers, of raping her. Backed by Al Sharpton and attorneys  Alton H. Maddox and C. Vernon Mason, the media frenzy surrounding the case was intense and racial tensions were at an all time high in New York City.

But, Brawley was found to have concocted the story, some say, in fear of the consequences she would have received from her parents after running away.

Now one of her accusers is seeking payback in the form of $190,000 he won in a defamation lawsuit against Brawley.
