But what is known is that Allen has been subjected to a public lynching in many media articles, most of which omitted to point out that no charges were ever filed and a 1992 investigation found "no credible evidence of molestation."
I was shown the open letter Dylan wrote making the accusations some days before the New York Times opted to publish it in the form of a blog. To me there was nothing new in her allegations as she had previously made the accusations in the form of court documents and later to Vanity Fair magazine.
But what has not been widely reported is that Dylan's brother Moses has dismissed his sister's claims, saying that their mother Mia Farrow poisoned their minds against him. "Of course Woody did not molest my sister," he said.
Another factor which has been swept under the carpet is that the Farrow family is undisputedly dysfunctional and Mia's brother John Villers-Farrow is currently serving a ten year jail sentence on two charges of sexually molesting two young boys.
The case rests. And hopefully that is the last we will hear of these unsubstantiated allegations.
