Of course, Jabba Sharpton allowed his part of the judgement to be paid by Johnny Cochran... And, they both left poor Tawana to fend for herself.
Now pay up, Tawana
’87 smear victim is looking to collect
Start watching your pennies, Tawana.
Twenty-five years after a teenage Tawana Brawley falsely dragged his name through the mud as a gang-raping, kidnapping racist, it’s payback time for Steven Pagones, a former Dutchess County prosecutor whom she still owes $429,000, including interest, on a 1998 defamation judgment.
“In all these years, she’s never told the truth about this hoax or paid me a cent,” he said yesterday.
“Now I’m going to seek anything I’m entitled to under the law,” Pagones said in response to a Sunday Post exclusive that revealed Brawley is working under a new name, Tawana Gutierrez, as a licensed practical nurse in a Richmond, Va., nursing home.
“I’m going to serve papers seeking to garnish her wages within the next couple of weeks,” he said. “This is all about accountability.”
That garnishment could well cost Brawley, a single mom of a grade-school-age daughter, up to a couple of hundred dollars a week.
Licensed practical nurses in the Richmond area earn an average of around $700 a week after tax, and under Virginia law, creditors with court orders can garnish up to 25 percent, which would translate to a loss of $175 a week.....With interest, her debt is now $429,000.....
