5 Browns' Dad Pleads Guilty to Child Sex Abuse
He admits to sodomy on a child under 14 and two charges of sex abuse of a child, all felonies.
Keith Brown, father of the classical piano group The 5 Browns, pleaded guilty Thursday to sexually abusing three of his daughters when they were children, reports the AP.
Brown, 55, has been charged with a first-degree felony count of sodomy on a child under 14 and two second-degree felony counts of sexual abuse of a child.
The charges indicate Brown engaged in sexual conduct with a child under the age of 14 between November 1990 and October 1992. He also sexually abused a child between March 1997 and March 1998, according to the charges.
"We can confirm that Keith Brown has been charged with sexual abuse involving his daughters," a spokesperson tells the AP.
A sentencing is scheduled for March.
If convicted of the sexual abuse charges, Brown could face life in prison.
The group’s three adult sisters — Desirae, 32, Deondra, 30, and Melody, 26 — have consented to the release of their identities.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the sisters called police after recently learning their father, who managed the quintet until 2008, planned to once again manage child musicians.
