The father of five siblings who make up internationally renowned piano group The 5 Browns has been accused of sex abuse by his own daughters.
Keith Brown was charged on February 10 with one first-degree count of sodomy on a child, and two second-degree counts of sexual abuse of a child, Salt Lake City court records show.
Just days later his Porsche plunged off a 300ft embankment as he returned from a ski resort on Valentine's Day with his wife Lisa.
Brown, 55, was driving, and wife Lisa, 54, the mother of the children, was in the passenger seat. The couple had been driving home from a ski resort when the accident occurred.
They were both knocked unconscious, but Brown woke up and managed to dial 911. The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but police said speed was a factor.
Court documents state the allegations stem from separate occasions between November 1990 and October 1992, November 1990 and November 1992 and March 1997 and March 1998 in Utah County.
Mr Thomson said the Brown women severed their professional relationship with Keith Brown in October of 2008. He was once the manager of The 5 Browns but now has no connection to the group...

If you go to the UK site, lots of pictures -- including not much of what's left of the Porsche Keith Brown was driving when he crashed.
From Mormonwiki: The 5 Browns -- Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae -- are the sons and daughters of Keith and Lisa Brown from Utah. Keith and Lisa Brown were trying to raise five good people....The Sunday London Telegraph and Entertainment Weekly called them
five young Mormons who all play scorching piano..."

Perverts are everywhere.
They are great pianists. It’s awful that they had to endure such abuse.
Reminds me of the Jackson 5. Even Mr Brown would have to go some way to out-asshatting the Jackson patriarch...
While his chosen religion, mormonism, may not be directly responsible for his crimes
the leaders and tenets of mormonism are still to blame for allowing it and covering up his awful sexual abuse...
His entitlement attitude may have come from his teaching that he is a mormon priest and therefore above any accountability of lower males...
Wow, another anti-Mormon post !
It’s really smart to smear a whole religion because of what one member does.
Don’t you have an article about a Mormon tearing the wings off of flies, or torturing kittens, or something ?
Hopefully you’re not snipping the salacious parts.
On the other hand, you’re probably snipping any parts that AREN’T salacious.
Tell us, do you go around to all the RC priest abuse stories & accuse the poster of being "anti-Catholic"?
Or how about all the educator sex abuse stories...are those posters "anti-education?"
Or is it just Mormon perps that you wind up serving as their advocate?
That took what, one post?
I don’t see where Catholicism has anything at all to do with this article.
Is it mentioned somewhere? I can’t find it.
(And it's not-so-smart to rush in, not say a word about the victims involved, and become the advocate-defender of a child sexual incest pervert -- as you've done)
Interesting that your shoot-the-messenger approach = that what you find negative in the world is bearers of bad news -- not the instigator-perps who committed the acts of abuse which were bound to find the light of day.
Your silence about these perps is quite telling re: your immoral character that you are more provoked by the news-bearers than by the sex abusers.
Your blind anti-Mormonisn rants never ceases to amaze me. I am sure there has never been a case of a Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Hindu, Shinto, etc., etc, etc. father who has ever committed sexual abuse. But in your mind this horrid person did this because his religion tells him it’s okay and has given him an entitlement mentality.
Give it a rest.
Be vewy vewy amazed..

Mind read much ???
committed sexual abuse.
Well at least you appear to admit that what the mormon priest did was sexual abuse...
Surely the concept of analogy isn't lost upon you.
I was simply saying that I don't usually see Catholics rush in to defend Catholic priest sex-abusers; but when it comes to the rush of Lds perp articles, we see both Mormons and non-Mormon allies of theirs rush in to defend these perps.
And if you think sexual abuse is just an occasional thing involving Mormons, think again. You gotta remember that Lds are only 2% of the population -- and therefore you would think that Lds would account for only 2% of these sex abuse stories -- because obviously, no sect is exempt from abusers in their midst.
Here's what see just from about the last year (nothing earlier than 2010)...and this doesn't even include all of the fLDS stuff we see in the news!
* Ex-LDS Seminary principal gets 5-to-life for abusing student
* Brock Police Report: Removal of "Temple Garments," a Meeting With LDS Officials
* Brock pleads guilty (Woman and daughter both have sex with underage male-Phoenix)
* Heber charity founder Lon Kennard Sr. charged with years of sexual abuse
* Family apologizes after sexual abuse arrest
* Ex-BLM Manager charged with sex abuse commits suicide
* Woman who had sex with therapist sues LDS Family Services for negligence
* Fake [LDS] marriage therapist arrested for sex abuse [this is a separate abuse story involving another lds therapist than the fake Lds therapist story listed right before this one]
* Ex-BYU student pleads guilty in attack on woman he was assigned to home teach
* Teen not getting new trial in attempted rape case
* Man jailed for indecent exposure [22 yo BYU-Idaho student]
And just this week, this headline: Scout officials, Mormon leaders were warned of abuser, suit says
BTW, JimT -- I didn't see your defenses of Mormon perps in many of those stories...better rush over now & comment to advocate for them while you have a chance!
In the former LDS seminary teacher, you have cases of Utah judges being accused of being corrupt: Corrupt Judge in Mormon Utah Coddles High Profile Pedophiles
Already by the Fall of 2009, we saw headlines like the following, replete with many active cases vs. Utah educators: Sexual misconduct persistent in Utah schools (Oct. 25, 2009)
You can click on that link for yourself to see where Utah ranked among schools in that category.
Utah is rampant with these kinds of cases...Here's another from the past year: Boy says detention supervisor performed sex acts on him (May 2010)
Jim - ping to mention in post #17
Prayers for the kids. Perverts need jail time.
One must wonder if the perp tried to kill himself and his wife.
...Such good neighbors....just great people...
