Kimball said the Brown sisters appreciate the respect shown to them by police and prosecutors, who sought their input at each stage of the case. He said none of the Brown siblings want to talk publicly at this time.

Thomson said the Brown children 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, Thomson said.

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.

There are no statutes of limitation in Utah that prevent prosecutors from filing such sex crime charges.

Utah County prosecutor David Sturgill said Lone Peak police brought the case to his office last year.

Shapiro couldn’t say exactly when Brown first spoke to police, but said the father first went to his Mormon church leader to confess. Sturgill wouldn’t comment further on the remarks.

Police were first contacted by Brown’s daughters.

“I think this deal was good for both sides,” Sturgill said. “This is something the victims wanted resolved, and I think the plea bargain is going to satisfy their needs.”

Brown and Lisa Brown, 54, the mother of the group members, were hospitalized after the Valentine’s Day crash that left the Porsche mangled and unrecognizable in Little Cottonwood Canyon on the east side of the Salt Lake valley.

The Browns were initially knocked unconscious, but Keith Brown woke and was able to call 911 from a cell phone.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation, although Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said speed appeared to be a factor in the accident.
