    Tawanna Brawley's Parents Want Rape Case Reopened

    Mother and step-dad still believe daughter was victimized.


    *Twenty years after her allegations of a racially charged rape became a national flashpoint, Tawana Brawley's mother and stepfather are looking to reopen the case, the New York Daily News reported.


    Glenda Brawley and Ralph King are pressing Gov. Eliot Spitzer and state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to re-examine the November 1987 incident, which a state grand jury ultimately concluded was a hoax.

    "New York State owes my daughter. They owe her the truth," said Glenda Brawley. She reiterated her stance that her daughter was indeed raped by a group of white men who smeared her with feces and scrawled racial epithets on her body.

    A spokesman for Spitzer said his office was not aware of any formal request from the family. The governor's office is not normally involved in investigating crime.

    Brawley was 15 when she went missing for four days from her home in Wappingers Falls, about 75 miles north of New York City. After being found, she made the shocking allegation that she had been abducted and raped by six white law enforcement officials.

    The case quickly made headlines and drew the attention of the Rev. Al Sharpton, who became an outspoken advocate for the teen. But a special state grand jury found evidence Brawley had fabricated her story. A former Dutchess County prosecutor who had been implicated in the case later sued Brawley, Sharpton and other Brawley advisers for defamation, winning a $345,000 judgment against the advisers and a $185,000 judgment against Brawley. Sharpton was held liable for $65,000 in the case.

    Brawley, meanwhile, has changed her name and become a nurse, the Daily News reported.

    Oh puleeze! They better spare themselves the embarrassment. There are at least 4 ppl that I know of that are adults now and would testify that that chick was at a party that night. I don't think even Al Sharpton would touch this one again.
