    Prosecutor from Dylan Farrow’s Sexual-Assault-Claim Case “Outraged” by Woody Allen’s Open Letter, Considering Legal Action



    In response to Dylan Farrow’s sexual-assault allegation—which the 28-year-old adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen outlined in a recent open letter—Woody Allen published his own open letter in The New York Times on Friday, recalling the 1992 investigation of Dylan’s claim from his perspective. “The district attorney was champing at the bit to prosecute a celebrity case,” Allen wrote, “and Justice Elliott Wilk, the custody judge, wrote a very irresponsible opinion saying when it came to the molestation, ‘we will probably never know what occurred.’”


    The complete letter received a prompt response from Dylan on Saturday, and now, it receives an outraged reply from Frank S. Maco, the district attorney to whom Allen refers in his letter. In defense of his character, Maco describes his history “serv[ing] the State of Connecticut for 31 years as a prosecuting attorney” and how “the manner in which I conducted myself during [the Woody Allen] investigation earned me the honor of being nominated by Richard Bozzuto of Watertown, Connecticut for the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award in 1994.” He further argues that the attack in Allen’s letter is completely without merit:

    My outrage today is directed at Woody Allen’s letter to the N.Y. Times describing me as a district attorney “champing at the bit to prosecute a celebrity case.” The attack upon my character was unprovoked, gratuitous, unwarranted and most importantly, unsupported by my history as a prosecutor. For me to sit silently in the face of this assault would do nothing less than betray the encouragement and support of so many, especially those who stood by me for the better part of five years of my career defending against Allen's disciplinary complaints--all of which were dismissed. In conclusion, my history as a prosecutor was completely opposite to the “headlines seeking” prosecutor that Allen describes. Accordingly, in coming days I will consider the wisdom of seeking legal representation in order to further address Allen's assault upon my character.

    The recent public rehashing between Woody Allen and Dylan Farrow seems to stem from V.F. special correspondent Maureen Orth’s major investigative report, published this past fall, during which Orth spoke to Dylan about the allegation of sexual assault, which she claims took place when she was seven-years-old. The complete feature can be read here, while a new report from Orth, “10 Undeniable Facts About the Woody Allen Sexual-Abuse Allegation” can be read here. Maco’s letter can be read in full below.


    My name is Frank S. Maco. I served the State of Connecticut for 31 years as a prosecuting attorney, retiring in 2003 as the State's Attorney for the Litchfield Judicial District. My total service in the criminal justice system of the State of Connecticut spanned five decades.

    In 1992 I directed the investigation involving sexual assault allegations against Woody Allen. The location of the alleged incident was Bridgewater, Connecticut, a town within the Litchfield judicial district. The manner in which I conducted myself during that investigation earned me the honor of being nominated by Richard Bozzuto of Watertown, Connecticut for the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award in 1994. I will forever be grateful for that honor.

    Before being appointed Litchfield State's Attorney in 1988, I served as a prosecutor in Bridgeport, Connecticut from 1972-1986. I joined the Office of the Chief State's Attorney in 1986.

    I believe those who knew me and my work prior to 1992 would agree that I was a prosecutor who took a case, tried the case to a conclusion, if necessary, accepted the decision of the judge or a jury, remained silent, and took on my next case. I would only speak publicly when to do less would undermine the community's confidence in my office, the Connecticut justice system or me personally.

    My outrage today is directed at Woody Allen's letter to the N.Y. Times describing me as a district attorney "champing at the bit to prosecute a celebrity case". The attack upon my character was unprovoked, gratuitous, unwarranted and most importantly, unsupported by my history as a prosecutor. For me to sit silently in the face of this assault would do nothing less than betray the encouragement and support of so many, especially those who stood by me for the better part of five years of my career defending against Allen's disciplinary complaints—all of which were dismissed.


    In conclusion, my history as a prosecutor was completely opposite to the "headlines seeking" prosecutor that Allen describes.

    Accordingly, in coming days I will consider the wisdom of seeking legal representation in order to further address Allen's assault upon my character.

    Eh, that's just what they did back then in the mid-1990s. We can't judge the situation by today's standards!
