2/17/2011 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The father of classical piano group "The 5 Browns" just pled guilty to sexually abusing his three daughters back when they were children -- and now faces up to life in prison.

5 Browns

His daughters -- now aged 26, 30, 32 -- decided to call the police on their father after learning he planned to manage other child musicians.

55-year-old Keith Scott Brown was charged with one count of first-degree felony sodomy upon a child, and two counts of second-degree felony sexual abuse of a child.

According to court documents, the abuse lasted sporadically from 1990-1998.

Sentencing is scheduled for March -- and he faces anywhere between ten years to life in prison.

Awesome, he'll get sent to a jail with other sick people like him, and nothing will happen, he'll live the rest of his days in a cell, but comfortably knowing he'll never really pay for the trauma/horror he caused by raping his own children.

legal system is disgusting, this guy should be stoned to death, yes, that includes every sexual predator.

I don't care if they're Mormon, Catholic, or Venusians... any man who preys on children (their own or others) Needs to have every piece of their junk cut off and stuffed in their mouths while being hung from the highest tree.

Period...end of story...and where was MOM when all of this was going on? THREE daughters and she didn't have clue? I call Bull ****.

Child abuse happens across all walks of life. To say that it's more prevalent among Mormons is absolutely wrong! It's a religion that values family more than most. A monster can pop up anywhere. Life in prison seems appropriate.

Nasty, sleezy mofo. If Mike Vick can pull 2 yrs in prison for fighting some freaking-ass DOGS this man should get the death penalty, for our children's sake! Peace.

Hate to know Mormons, because I know several and they seem wonderful BUT ... EVERYTHING GOES TO THE BISHOP.

I have no doubt the bishop 'counseled' them while told them to continue to play 'happy moral family' to the world. Very patriarchal, sexist organization.

Another "good" family that we should all aspire to be like shows it's true colors. Just goes to show religion has nothing to do with being a good person.
