Next step uncertain in Woody Allen allegations
NEW YORK - A week bracketed by op-ed letters of accusation and denial left little clarity and scant hope for resolution in a bitter saga that has haunted Woody Allen and the Farrow family for more than two decades.
Allen responded to adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's allegation that he sexually assaulted her when she was 7 with a letter published Friday by the New York Times. He declared it would be his "final word on this entire matter."
But the next steps are uncertain, with the possibility of legal recourse and continued scrutiny in the weeks and months ahead.
The rampant debate sparked by Farrow's accusation will likely continue to stir questions over the alleged molestation, how claims of sexual assault are publicly weighed, and the legacy of Allen's work as a filmmaker.
