The Tawana Brawley rape allegations in the late 1980s left an entire
community on the brink of civil war and now, Fox Nation takes a closer
look at one of the most racially-charged legal sagas in American history.
Scandalous: The Mysterious Story of Tawana Brawley makes its debut today
on the brand new, subscribers-only streaming network, and features
exclusive interviews with those central to the case.
The New York teen's rape claims -- in which she said she was allegedly
raped in the woods by multiple white men around this day 31 years ago in
Wappingers Falls, New York, and then left wrapped in a feces-covered
plastic bag with racial slurs written on her body -- helped springboard
the careers of civil rights activists such as Al Sharpton.
But after an extensive investigation filled with twists and turns, a grand
jury found the allegations to be nothing more than an elaborate hoax.
We should have been upset by the fact that for a year or more this girl
and her advisers had an entire community feeling like at any moment we
were going to have some sort of civil war, Jonna Spilbor, a Dutchess
County attorney, says in the special.
Despite this conclusion, the lives and reputations of some were tarnished
irreparably. Still, some remain loyal to Brawley and her legal team,
convinced at the very least something happened to the teenager in 1987.

Tawana Brawley, Michael Hardy, an attorney who has represented Sharpton,
tells Fox Nation in the special. The grand jury report, it is what it is.

Scandalous: The Mysterious Story of Tawana Brawley covers the entire
story, from events leading up to the alleged incident to the defamation
suit filed against Brawley and her attorneys by former Dutchess County
prosecutor Steven Pagones -- who had been falsely accused of raping the
It will feature interviews with major players in the incident, including
Attorney General Robert Abrams, who led the investigation -- and goes into
detail about some of the repercussions Brawley has faced.
Her father lost his job, her aunt lost her job with the state, they lived
on I-95 for a few months, retired New York Police Department detective
Graham Weatherspoon says in the special. They were living out of their
car driving up and down I-95. It was so bad that even their credit cards
had been shut down.
Abrams, who says the allegations Brawley made were not corroborated by
any of the facts, credits a meticulous investigation for bringing the
light to what really happened that year just north of New York City.
In the end, the case inflamed racial tensions at a crucial time in our
nations history and highlighted the importance of thoroughness in the
justice system. To go further in-depth, click here to watch Scandalous:
