Stephen Collins, the actor best known for his role as a pastor on the TV series “7th Heaven,” is under investigation for allegedly molesting three young girls. The allegations became public just recently when a private recording of Collins' confession during therapy with his now estranged wife was leaked.
In the recording, Collins admitted to molesting a 10-year-old girl in 1972. The victim was a relative of the actor's first wife and the acts reportedly occurred over a period of three years. He also admitted to exposing himself to two other girls under the age of 14 in separate incidents.
One of the alleged victims and her husband reached out to Collins' second wife in 2012 with details of the incidents. His wife urged him to seek treatment, which he reportedly refused. His wife then reported the incidents to the Los Angeles and New York Police Departments.
At this time, Collins has not been charged with a crime; however, the actor has since been fired from the cast of the movie “Ted 2” and resigned from the National Board of Screen Actors Guild.
