Child Sex Abuse Charges Filed Against Mia Farrow’s Brother

Submitted by on November 16, 2012 – 10:00 am Comments

Recently, Mia Farrow’s younger brother John Charles Villiers-Farrow was arrested over child sex abuse allegations. Maryland police took the 66-year-old into custody for reportedly sexually abusing several children over a number of years. Turns out, two men have come forward and claimed that John had sexually abused them between 2000 and 2008, when they were young boys. Villiers-Farrow is currently in jail on $250,000 bail. He faces charges for child abuse, sex abuse of a minor, assault and perverted practice. Anne Arundel County police first began investigating the brother of Mia Farrow in August after receiving a tip that he was abusing children in the area.

This is not the first time he’s been in the public eye. In 1992, Villers-Farrow famously told PEOPLE magazine that Woody Allen, who had once been married to Farrow and fathered three of their children, would have serious legal trouble because of his relationship with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. Villers-Farrow at that time was quoted as syaing: ‘(He’s) going to be indicted and he’s going to be ruined. I think when all of it comes out, he’s going to jail.’ Farrow’s brother was referred to at the time as ‘a sometime screenwriter and boat salesman outside Annapolis’. Guess its Woody Allen who is having the last laugh.

For the uninitiated, Mia Farrow and Allen parted after Farrow discovered a sexual relationship between Allen and her adopted daughter Soon-Yi. During the subsequent custody battle involving Farrow’s and Allen’s three children, Farrow filed charges that Allen had molested their daughter Dylan, then seven years old. Allen has adamantly denied the charges. A doctor concluded that Dylan “either invented the story under the stress of living in a volatile and unhealthy home or that it was planted in her mind by her mother” because of the inconsistent presentation of the story by Dylan.

Farrow has been estranged from Soon-Yi since Soon-Yi’s 1997 marriage to Allen. As of Nov 2012, Mia Farrow has thirteen living children and nine grandchildren. As far as the charges against her brother are concerned, anyone with additional information or anyone who may have also been a victim is asked to contact Detective Josh Williams of the Child Abuse Unit at 410-222-3484.
