Stephen Collins Will Not Be Prosecuted for Molestation Cases
The 67-year-old 7th Heaven actor allegedly confessed to the crimes to his wife Faye Grant in an audio released earlier this month, though all three cases are decades old and statute of limitations will bar prosecution from moving forward.
While Faye alleges that Stephen molested a child as recently as when he was filming 7th Heaven, no victim has come forward to back up that claim.
The molestation case will be brought up in court when Stephen and Faye face each other in their divorce trial next month. She plans to bring up the issue because she wants to make sure her portion of their assets is protected in the event one of the victims files a suit against him. He also will bring up the case because he claims she tried to extort him by using the audio tape.
