Why Woody Allen wasn't prosecuted for sexually assaulting daughter
State's Attorney Frank S. Maco has opened up about why he decided not to prosecute Woody Allen after his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's sexual abuse allegations were filed against him in 1992.
Maco had announced in 1993 that while he found a probable cause to prosecute the Hollywood director, he was dropping the case because Farrow was too fragile to deal with the trial.
Maco told People magazine last fall that Farrow was traumatized to the extent that he did not have a confident witness to testify in any court setting, be it a closed or open courtroom.
Maco added that Dylan's recent openness does not change anything about his feelings as to the correctness of his words and actions back in 1992 and 1993 as he had to first and foremost consider the child.
