Mia Farrow’s Brother Charged With Alleged Child Sex Abuse

John Charles Villiers-Farrow

Annapolis, MD – Police in Anne Arundel County Maryland have arrested John Charles Villiers-Farrow, actress Mia Farrow’s brother, on various charges in connection with child sex abuse allegations.

Multiple media reports indicate that two young men claim that they were sexually molested by Villiers-Farrow, their neighbor, from 2000 to 2009 when they were minors.

According to NBC Channel 4 in Washington, D.C., the charges against Villiers-Farrow, 66, are as follows: “… second- and third-degree sex offenses, two counts of perverted practice, two counts of second-degree child abuse, several counts of sex abuse of a minor, and two counts of second-degree assault. ”

NBC summarizes the alleged acts that led to the criminal charges against Villiers-Farrow;

“Court documents claim that the boys were abused in Villiers-Farrow’s home, and a few times in a nearby camper. The victims told police that Villiers-Farrow would show them pornographic movies. The encounters escalated to touching and then to oral sex, the documents said.”

Villiers-Farrow apparently surrendered to police on Wednesday night and is being held on $250,000 bond.

Law enforcement authorities suspect that there may be additional victims of alleged abuse by Mia Farrow’s brother and have set up a hotline phone number for any others to come forward.

Somewhat ironically perhaps, the Daily Mail of London points out that Villiers-Farrow made headlines in 1992 for blasting filmmaker Woody Allen for entering into a romantic relationship with Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. This turn of events of course led to a very acrimonious custody battle between Allen and Farrow over their other children.

    The pot calling the kettle black and here we are. Thing is the spouse rarely if ever are ignorant of the facts. They just maintain the farce for their own self interests, making them as guilty if not worse for not taking action to prevent the abuse. Lock her up as an accessory to the fact.
