WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tawana Brawley is living in Virginia under a new name, still owing money to a New York lawyer she accused of raping her 25 years ago, the New York Post reports.

The Post reported Sunday that the 40-year-old Brawley lives in Hopewell, Va., has a young daughter and works as a nurse in Richmond, Va.

Brawley was 15 and living in Wappingers Falls, N.Y. when she said six white law enforcement officials abducted and raped her. Brawley is black.

The allegations spurred a national racial controversy before a grand jury decided they were false.

The Post says Brawley never paid a $190,000 defamation judgment owed to one man she accused.

She told the newspaper she doesn't want to talk to anyone about the episode.

There was no answer Sunday at a possible phone number for her.
