Mia Farrow: Where is Her Outrage Over Her Own Brother, A Convicted Sex Offender Now In Prison?


Mia Farrow has waged a war against Woody Allen, claiming he’s a sex offender, for 22 years. Allen has never been charged with anything. But Mia says nothing about her own brother, John Farrow. He is currently serving 10 years in a Maryland prison on a 25 year sentence for sex abuse of two young boys.

And that’s not the only trouble surrounding Mia’s family. Her other brother, Patrick, committed suicide almost five years ago.

Is Mia projecting her anger toward her brothers onto Woody Allen? Think about it. Where is Mia’s public outrage over an actual convicted offender? Will Ronan cover that story on MSNBC, or Tweet about it?

More importantly: were Mia’s kids ever harmed by this man? No one has ever spoken about that.

John Farrow, 67, was convicted this past October in Maryland. Two young men revealed Farrow had molested them between 2000 and 2008. They are now 20 years old.

Mia Farrow’s brother pleaded guilty to two counts of child abuse. He faced 39 counts of child abuse. To stop his trial last summer, Farrow entered an Alford plea, meaning he accepted his conviction while maintaining his innocence. At his sentencing, Farrow told the court: “I do feel regret. This is absolutely the worst thing that I’ve ever done and I will ever do. It was the biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life.”

It’s pretty interesting that neither Mia nor Ronan Farrow, and now Dylan, have never spoken out in support of John Farrow’s victims. Those victims have documented proof and a guilty plea and a sex abuser in prison.

And no reason has ever been given for Patrick Farrow’s violent 2009 suicide.
