The father of The 5 Browns music group has been sentenced to 10 years to life behind bars for sexually abusing his daughters, RadarOnline.com can report.
Keith Brown, 55, pled guilty to one count of sodomy on a child and two counts of sexual abuse after assaulting his children for eight long years.
The daughters, who are now adults, reported the abuse – which began in 1990 – to authorities in 2010 after learning of their father’s plans to mentor other children.
Judge David Mortensen sentenced Brown at Utah court house saying: “I think it’s obvious a home should be a refuge and a safe place, and that a parent should be a protector.”
He also branded Brown a pedophile and a danger to society, but admitted he had been given a more lenient sentence “through the consent of your victims”.
The five strong piano performance group consists of two brothers and their three sisters. All of the females were abused.
They were on tour the day their father was sentenced.
