The father of sibling classical music group The 5 Browns has been sentenced to serve a minimum of 10 years for sexually abusing three of his daughters when they were kids.
Keith Scott Brown, 55, pleaded guilty to three felonies in February (11) over his treatment of Desirae, now 32, Deondra, now 30, and 26-year-old Melody, who front the piano-playing group.
On Thursday (31Mar11), Utah Judge David Mortensen sentenced the patriarch to 15 years to life for two counts of sexual abuse, and 10 years to life for sodomy on a child under 14.
He told Brown, "I do believe you are a paedophile. I do believe you are a danger to society. I think it's obvious a home should be a refuge and a safe place, and that a parent should be a protector."
The punishments will all run concurrently and Brown will be locked up for at least 10 years in a state prison as part of a plea deal.
