'5 Browns' Dad Pleads Guilty to Abusing Daughters

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.

Very sorry you suffered. I completely understand. I am not Mormon, but I am smart. I empathize with you and know we live with memories of child abuse forever. It is a life sentence. Keep on being positive and keep on healing, my friend:)

Put very well, so many do not take the time to understand the simple dynamics, they see it as complex. The abuse cycle/batterers syndrome can drag you down a lifetime of pain, unless you seek help to stop the cycle you learn. so sad:( Yuo are smart as well!

What about the mother? She's worse than the father if she knew and how could she not? Why did these girls stay with the father after they became adults?

Why would a "Statute of Limitation" be in question when a father molested his THREE daughters? Americans! You want the creep to continue roaming around your children. Oh, you must don't have any. You wonder why he felt so comfortable doing it to 3 and not just one. Prosecute the mother as well. His first weekend in prison should be a hole-in-one. Religion does not matter...hang him high.

it's so sad looking in their eyes, knowing the dark secret they all kept. i have a daughter and i don't know how anyone could do that to someone they're supposed to cherish. lock him up and throw away the key. loser.

It truly doesn't matter what religion you "claim" There are so many pukes out there that obviously have a problem, thinking it ok to touch children in horrific ways. They need to start building insane institutions again. Then they need to give these creeps a one way ticket to reside in the building till they die. I truly do not think it is curable. You get busted once messing with anybodys child, YOU'RE DONE lock them away. This incest & molestation crap is literally destroying thousands of lives. The kids that are in it now, and the adults that dealt with it years ago are still messed up too. Someone big & powerful needs to step in & say enough is enough! If you do this "discusting act" You will be sent away. period!!

It doesn't matter what religious affiation these people are, as these types of crimes occur in families of every religion around the world. But for those who claim that this happens often in the Mormon culture, you're wrong. You're just trying to bash a religion you don't believe in. And just so you know, after a crime like this is reported to a mormon leader (or bishop), the leader advises the victim to report the crime to the authorities (and helps them do so) to let the justice system do it's job.

Society has no use for people who molest children. Off with his head or off with his d*ck, if you ask me, and I don't give a sh*t which.
