Keith Brown, the patriarch of the family whose children make up the classical piano group The 5 Browns, has been charged with the sexual abuse of his three now-adult daughters, according to the AP. UPDATE: Brown pleaded guilty today to a first-degree felony count of sodomy on a child and two second-degree felony counts of sexual abuse of a child, related to events that occurred between 1990 and 1998. In a statement, a spokesperson for the musical group said:

Brown and his wife, Lisa, were in a car accident in Salt Lake City on Valentine’s Day that required them both to be hospitalized, but Brown appeared today in court to make his guilty plea. The 55-year-old, who could face life in prison, could not be reached for comment at this time.
