Ex-prosecutor Steve Pagones, who is suing three of Tawana Brawley's former advisors for defamation, took the stand and emphatically denied raping her, saying he's never even met her. Pagones is suing the Rev. Al Sharpton, C. Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox for $395 million for publicly accusing him of assaulting 15-year-old Brawley with a gang of other white men in 1987 in New York City. A grand jury later dismissed her tale of rape as a fabrication and cleared Pagones.
