Farrow's brother jailed in sex case

Mia Farrow's brother of has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually abusing two boys in his neighborhood in Maryland.

Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Laura Kiessling sentenced John Villers-Farrow to 25 years in prison with 15 years suspended.

In July, Villers-Farrow entered an Alford plea, which allows a defendant to maintain his innocence while admitting prosecutors have enough evidence to convict. The 67-year-old businessman, husband and father was indicted after two men accused him of sexually abusing them between 2000 and 2008 when they were children.

Prosecutors say Villers-Farrow began abusing one boy when he was nine-years-old and the second when he was eight.

Villers-Farrow apologised to the victims, who were not in court.
