NEW YORK (AP) - Dylan Farrow has renewed allegations against movie director Woody Allen that he molested her when she was 7 after he and actress Mia Farrow adopted her.

In an open-letter to The New York Times posted online Saturday, Dylan Farrow made her first public comments about the 1992 incident. She told op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof that Allen "got away with what he did" and it "haunted" her.

Farrow said she was spurred to comment after Allen was recently honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes. Farrow said Hollywood's continued embrace of Allen worsened her torment.

Allen was investigated on child molestation allegations, but he was never charged. However, the investigating prosecutor said there was "probable cause."

Representatives for Allen did not immediately return requests for comment Saturday.
