5 Browns father jailed for abuse

Keith Brown, the father of the piano group The 5 Browns, has been sentenced to at least 10 years in a Utah prison

The father of the piano group The 5 Browns has been sentenced to at least 10 years in a Utah prison for sexually abusing his three daughters when they were children.

Keith Brown pleaded guilty in February to one count of sodomy and two counts of sexual abuse.

Fourth District Judge David Mortensen sentenced the 55-year-old to 10 years to life on the first count, and 15 years to life for each of the others. The sentences will run concurrently, but Brown will have to serve at least 10 years under the plea agreement.

Brown's daughters and sons make up The 5 Browns, whose albums have topped classical music charts.

The daughters, now adults, reported the abuse last year.
