Stephen Collins from 7th Heaven under investigation for child molestation

Stephen Collins, the actor made famous from his role as Eric Camden on the hit series 7th Heaven, is currently under criminal investigation in New York City for child molestation. Local law-enforcement (in this case the Manhattan Special Victims Squad) has received a formal complaint against Collins revolving around a single incident at this time.

TMZ was the first outlet to post the news online. TMZ released an audio from a 2012 therapy session which included Collins and his then-wife Faye Grant. The two divorced the same year that this therapy session was supposedly recorded. One of the most horrific moments on the audio is when Collins admits to molesting one girl and exposing himself to others.

The girls in question are reportedly between the ages of 10 and 13, more information will be released from the police when they make an official statement on the matter.
