The classical quintet the 5 Browns are beautiful sibling musical savants, each mastering the grand piano and playing together in memorable performances.
Today, ABC News reports that their father, Keith Brown, 55, finally confessed to sexually abusing his three daughters when they were little, after being hospitalized for a wild car accident. Brown also reportedly "confessed" his crimes to his Mormon church elders.
Brown pleaded guilty to one count of sodomy upon a child and two additional counts of sexual abuse in Provo, Utah, today, days after he was released from the hospital following a dramatic car accident
"He pleaded guilty," Brown's lawyer, Steven Shapiro, told ABC News.com. "This was the next step in a long process in attempting to accept responsibility for deplorable contact with his daughters that happened many years ago."
Brown sodomized one daughter younger than 14 between November 1990 and November 1992, according to a criminal complaint filed in court Feb. 10.
Brown also molested his three daughters between March 1997 and March 1998.
All three of Brown's daughters -- Desirae, 32, Deondra, 30, and Melody, 26 have come forward in the investigation according to ABC News.
The possible punishment:
Under Utah state law, the sodomy charge carries a sentence of 15 years to life and the two lesser abuse charges carry sentences of 1 to 15 years.
Brown's attorney said he will be sentenced next month and will likely serve the sentences concurrently for 10 to 12 years.
ABC reports that Keith Brown has not managed his children's quintet since 2008.
The accident that spurred the confession:
Brown and his wife, Lisa Brown, 54, the musicians' mother, were together when he totaled their Porsche driving straight off a Utah cliff. The couple were taken to the hospital.
Brown appeared in court today bruised and with stitches on his face. He did not make a statement.
