Shocking footage has been released that appears to show actor Stephen Collins confessing to molesting multiple young girls over the last few decades.
Collins is known for playing the father in the hit 90s television show “7th Heaven.” Collins’ character was a pastor who was known for passing on his wholesome values to his brood of children.
Unfortunately, the actor appears to be nothing like the character who made him famous.
Recently, Collins has been going through an incredibly bitter divorce with actress Faye Grant. On Monday, Grant leaked an audio recording of a therapy session the couple attended back in 2012. In the footage, Collins admits to molesting multiple girls over the course of a few decades. In fact, the actor molested so many girls that he can barely keep them straight himself.
Listen as Collins admits to molesting an 11 year-old female relative of his wife’s, saying, “There was one moment of touching where her hand, I put her hand on my penis.”
He then admits to exposing himself to the child “a couple of times” when she was between the ages of 11 and 13. Grant asks if he was erect when he exposed himself, to which he responds, “No, I mean, no. Partial, maybe I think.”
After this confession, Collins admits to molesting multiple girls that age in his neighborhoods in both New York and LA. He even apologized to one of them years later to make up for what he did.
The NYPD is currently investigating this case. Though some of the assaults happened years ago, police say the statute of limitations actually started when the confession was recorded.
Because the therapy session happened in California, Grant was advised by her lawyers that she could record it in order to prove that Collins had committed a violent felony. The laws there allowed her to do that.
As of now, there are three victims in this case, but more could come forward in time. Collins has worked on multiple television series that started young actresses, including “7th Heaven” and “The Fosters.” The latter was a show about a group of children living in a foster home, so Collins was on set with many young actresses every day.
We can only hope that Collins did not lay a finger on any of these little girls.
