Dylan Farrow renews Woody Allen molestation claims

Dylan Farrow renews Woody Allen molestation claims

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The Connecticut prosecutor who investigated Woody Allen on child molestation claims more than 20 years ago but didn't file charges says it's too late for the film director to be prosecuted.

Now-retired Litchfield County state attorney Frank Maco (MAY'-koh) said in a phone interview Sunday with The Associated Press that the statute of limitations on adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's accusations ran out at least 15 years ago.

Maco said in 1993 that he believed Allen had molested Farrow but decided against charging him to avoid a traumatic trial for the young girl.

Farrow renewed allegations against Allen in an open letter to The New York Times on Saturday, saying he sexually assaulted her when she was 7 after he and actress Mia Farrow adopted her.

Allen has denied the accusations.
