Woody Allen Was Actually Accused Of Molesting Dylan Farrow Years Ago, But Was Not Prosecuted Because Of This Controversial Reason!

woody allen dylan farrow accusations as child controversy

Woody Allen has certainly been at the center of a lot of controversy in his life.

But this latest claim has to be one of the most shocking and difficult matters.

Dylan Farrow came forward in an open letter to Hollywood and the world to accuse Woody of molestation when she was a child. But this wasn't the first time she made these claims.

As a child, Dylan did address the matter with her mother and that turned into an investigation. However, that investigation and prosecution of the crime came to an end because of a very controversial move by state's attorney Frank S. Maco.

While he claimed there was "probable cause" to prosecute Woody, he ended up dropping the case because Dylan seemed too "fragile" to handle the court case:

"[She was] traumatized to the extent that I did not have a confident witness to testify in any court setting, whether that's a closed courtroom or an open courtroom."

The state's attorney is also still sticking by his decision to not take the child into court, which was supported at the time by Dylan's mom, Mia Farrow. Frank has since said:

"[Dylan's letter] does not change anything about my feelings as to the correctness of my words and actions back in '92 and '93. I had to first and foremost consider the child."

During the battle between Mia and Woody, she ended up being awarded custody of Dylan. Woody was not granted visitation rights.

We're not sure what will happen with this now that Dylan is speaking about it.

But we certainly hope everything turns out as it should, and those who might be suffering find some peace.

    If he did it, he should be brought to justice… he ended up marrying his adoptive child, what more probe should anyone want. So sad, for such a great mind…

    I really wonder how his adopted daughters with his wife/daughter are doing.



  3. 3

    The statute of limitations has passes, nothing can be done anymore. :(

    Translation: Woody did it, but because the event and subsequent press was so traumatizing, the SA didn't want to push the case further.

    Dylan was my childhood friend. When these allegations came out, she crumbled. She was in 2nd grade. She wouldn't look anyone in the eyes, not even her classmates. She wouldn't talk. She would shake. I think that the state's atty made the right decision at the time. She couldn't even sit in a quiet classroom and interact with children. The press waited outside of her school to catch a picture of a molested child. Dylan was failed by her father, her society, and crumbled. I'm so proud of her for finding her voice through years of therapy. Whatever you think about her mother, Mia, please don't judge Dylan on that prejudice.

    Re: tjpm – i know right? I think this case is much more disgusting than ROman Polanski (spelling?). Because Woody was Dylan and Soonyi's father. He was supposed to protect them and raise them as children, not use them to live out his sexual fantasies. Above being illegal, it's the biggest violation of a child to have their own father be the molester.

    It's a tough call, you want to protect your child but as this case shows, matters should have been handled on time. Even if Dylan is too fragile to talk, she can still be examined? Mia should have asked for anoher proceeding? trial later on? She is also responsible here.

    Why this sex maniac is still walking in and enjoying liberty, I really do not understand.

    The predatorial and bent individuals who do this to children give no mind to the lifelong
    damage it causes to their victims. They only care about scratching their perverted itch.

    it appears he has a talent for something other than making films. he was diddling one of his other kids before he decided to married her. friggin' pervert. i hope this trashes his career.

    Not being prosecuted is not uncommon. My uncle raped me when I was 9. We went to trial, and he was found guilty and sat for a few years. He then got his conviction overturned because he had also molested his step daughter and was in jail for that, and it was brought up at the trial to show he was a repeat offender, and that wasn't allowed for this type of trial. They declined to prosecute a second time because my mind was too fragile. I was a teenager by then, and they felt it would impede my healing process.

    there's also the matter that physicians found no evidence of sexual abuse. Not that I'm saying he's innocent but you left that part out about why the case wasn't pursued.

    Re: Jessicalc – Really? Look at the Catholic Church and those the priests molested. They are going to court every day and winning lots of $$. Statute of limitations or not - wrong is wrong and they won't count her years as a minor.

    Re: CharCat – Do you really think they do a full pelvic exam on a 7 year old? Also, does she say he penetrated her vaginally? I hadn't heard that one. If not, then there really is no "examination" anyone could do to say yes or no.

    Re: Doncha Just Know – Yeah, you seem to know of what you are talking about? Victim of priest or abuser yourself?



  15. 15

    just another nasty old perv, much like yourself

    Re: Jessicalc – no statute on capitol crimes.

    You know Perez this is false. The child gave incoherent testimony, she contradicted herself AND she was guided by her mother to say what she did.

    He should be in jail or worse people like him make me sick, disgusting…

    False accusations are not uncommon. White females have tossed 1000's of black men in prison over the centuries for false rape accusations. Thanks to dna, some of those men are being vindicated. So now, after all that historical legal carnage we are supposed to just TAKE their WORD for it. If it happened, I feel bad for her. If it didn't happen, I feel bad for Woody. What happened? I don't know. His word against hers against his. Either could be lying.

    OMFG, this is too outrageous! I'm going back to my picture of Justin Beiber who sucks the nipple of a nude striper in duo with black scumbag number one, or two? whatever…

    Thing is, it's not just these rumours is it? I mean what do the actors who work with Roman Polanski think? That he stays in Switzerland all the time because he likes skiing so much?

    Re: Jessicalc – God…I know!! I've always thought about this! One of his adopted daughters is blind, too. I hate pedophiles - they deserve the death penalty!

    What the hell are you talking about? YOU ARE A MOLESTER.
    What's your real name, so that we can know?

    Doncha Just Know is DEFENDING the helpless as in CHILDREN-child victims, potential victims and adult survivors. You piece of filth. You will burn in hell, when you die.

    Really? Really overthere?

    The child was not telling the truth? Then explain her behavior in class? Explain how she was acting to her classmates, like the fourth commenter. Why was she acting like that?

    It's real.

    You say everything is fake. You say every story is a fake. That's all you ever do. Not everything is fake.

    Obviously you're a pedophile because why else would you stick up for a pedophile?

    Hell waits for you. Don't worry.

    What kind of person, when molestation is brought up, would put the, "suckrudklesduck" moniker up?

    Oh, that's right……………a pedophile, that's who.

    Someone with frontal-lobe neurological brain damage. That's who. It's been scientifically proven that serial killers and pedophiles have frontal-lobe neurological brain damage.

    They're very MANIPULATIVE, and they lie and they DISTRACT. Which is exactly what you're trying to do. They have anti-social personality disorder. Which means they have no feelings other than through sex. They have no guilt and no conscience. And they also go to HELL WHEN THEY DIE. Oooooh Joy! You'll be having "fun" there. Let me tell ya.

    Why don't you do some research on near-death experiences and visions of hell, STUPID? You know, the moron that has frontal-lobe neurological brain damage.

    Is ruckle like uncle?

    Are you someone's pedophile uuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnncle?

    Aaaawwwwwwww. You're so cleeeeeeeeveeeer. You're so smaaart.

    With your frontal-lobe neurological brain damage. God, you're so smart. That must be why you're a pedophile. Because you're so smaaart.

    But you have more than other people. That's why you and others like you do what you do because you're better than other people. They just don't know what they're missing out on, huh? They just don't have the guts to do what you do, right? You're SPECIAL.

    A Kennedy just drove DUI and skipped off freely, the patriarchal LAW hierarchy won't let insiders answer for crimes!
