Mia Farrow’s brother makes Alford plea in sex case

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The brother of actress Mia Farrow has entered an Alford plea in a Maryland court to two counts of sexually abusing two boys.

The Capital of Annapolis reports (http://bit.ly/13jEYLS) that John Villers-Farrow of Edgewater entered the plea Friday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court in Annapolis. An Alford plea allows a defendant to maintain his innocence while admitting prosecutors had enough evidence to convict.

The 66-year-old businessman, husband and father was indicted in November after two men accused him of sexually abusing them when they were children living in his neighborhood.

The newspaper reports that Villers-Farrow said he made the plea because it was the quickest way he could serve the time. He will be sentenced Sept. 30.

Prosecutors say Villers-Farrow began abusing one boy when he was 9 years old and the second when he was 8.
