Actress Mia farrow’s 67-year-old brother was sentenced Monday to serve more than 10 years behind bars for sexually abusing two boys in Anne Arundel County, authorities say.

A judge sentenced Edgewater resident John Charles Villers-Farrow to 25 years but suspended 15 years of the sentence.

Authorities say he sexually abused two boys over a number of years. The alleged abuse came to light in 2012.

Villers-Farrow went to trial in July 2013 but took an Alford plea while the trial was underway.

An Alford plea means the defendant doesn’t admit guilty but acknowledges that prosecutors can prove their case against them.
