This is sad and disgusting.

The patriarch of a prominent family musical group has been charged with sexually abusing his three daughters in a stunning revelation that was followed four days later by the father careening his Porsche off a 300-foot enbankment into an icy stream. Keith Brown, whose daughters are part of The 5 Browns, survived the crash and faces one first-degree felony count of sodomy on a child and two second-degree felony counts of sexual abuse of a child, according to Fourth District Court records obtained Wednesday. The 5 Browns are a classical piano group from Utah that features the three sisters and their two brothers.

The records filed Feb. 10 in the abuse case don’t identify any victim by name or indicate the relationship between Keith Brown and the alleged victims. However, Kimball Thomson, a spokesman for The 5 Browns, said the charges involve Brown’s daughters and group members Desirae, 32, Deondra, 30, and Melody, 26. He declined to release further information on the women.

“We can confirm that Keith Brown has been charged with sexual abuse involving his daughters,” Thomson said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. The AP does not generally identify people who say they were sexually assaulted, but the Brown women have chosen to be identified and are cooperating with police, Thomson said.

Attorney Steven Shapiro, who represents 55-year-old Keith Brown, said he would not comment on the charges until Brown makes an initial court appearance set for Thursday in Provo.Court documents state the allegations stem from separate occasions between November 1990 and October 1992, November 1990 and November 1992 and March 1997 and March 1998 in Utah County.

There are no statutes of limitation in Utah that prevent prosecutors from filing such sex crime charges. Thomson said the Brown children severed their professional relationship with Keith Brown in October of 2008. He was once the manager of The 5 Browns but now has no connection, Thomson said.

Keith Brown and Lisa Brown, 54, the mother of the group members, were hospitalized after the Valentine’s Day crash that mangled the Porsche beyond recognition in Little Cottonwood Canyon on the east side of the Salt Lake valley. The Lone Peak Police Department, which investigated the sex abuse allegations, referred all questions about the case to the Utah County attorney’s office. A telephone message left for Deputy County Attorney David Sturgill was not immediately returned.

If convicted, Keith Brown could face a sentence of up to life in prison on the first-degree felony and up to 15 years each on the second-degree felonies. The children had visited their parents at hospitals and were hopeful for speedy recoveries, Thomson said. Their performance schedule would not be affected by the developments, he said.

SMH. Sounds like dude was a lil shook about the charges and wanted to take matters into his own hands.

    Anyone who’s done his/her research knows that most child stars have endured sexual abuse at the hands of their fathers. After the families cut a deal, the industry folk take over. This is par for the course. A prerequisite, if you will.

    Ive seen these kids in concert. They are fantastic. So sorry to hear this news..this doesn’t surprise me ..especially coming out of the state of Utah!

  • Mabel

    Nothing is ever as it seems.

    Utah, this is an occultist state that houses Penacostal (sp) and Mormal religions. Most of the fathers sexual abuse their kids to cause trauma, once you cause trama and split the childs brain into alters you can do whatever you want with them. Beyonce, Jessica Simpson, the Jacksons, Britney, etc were all sexual abused as children… why do you think their behaviour on stage at a young age was sexual. Creating multiple personalities allows you to control.

    • foreallydoe

      I agree that repetitive childhood trauma can be an effective mind control agent but why did you put those names out there? We all know about the Jackson’s physical abuse but I’ve never heard of sexual abuse (actually I have but the story is too wierd to repeat). Are you just making as sumptions?

    • Kennyisdumb!

      Kenny your an idiot! Freeking IDIOT! I feel so stupid for wasting my time reading your 3rd grade post about Utah! Do the world a favor and NEVER post again!!! EVER!! IDIOT!

  • notsomuch

    Desirae, Deondra, and Melody Brown – they straight up have black names.

  • jazzy

    Why would you say such awful things about those young ladies, how do you know they were abused?

  • Jessica

      I do feel bad for what the girls (now women) had to endure at the hands of their father, but I am glad that they are finally got the courage to take action aganist their “father”

  • Coco

    this has NOTHING to do with mormons and being in utah. IF YOU HAVE STUDIED the churches religion on a positive note and KNOW good mormon members…. you would know that this is a HUGE deal. HE WILL NOT BE JUDGED LIGHTLY! Mormons are about families and THIS MAKES EVERYONE SICK TO THEIR STOMACH! It’s wrong to put blame on a religion and culture you no nothing about. I hope this man gets the max. And i hope his girls can be strengthen and over come and LIVE a happy life. Our hearts brake for them.
