Stephen Collins, the man who played the father and pastor on 7th Heaven confessed to his estranged wife, Faye Grant, that he was a child molester. AND IT'S ALL ON TAPE. The tape has been obtained by TMZ and the NYPD. The alleged "inappropriate sexual contact with minors" is believed to involve at least three victims, including one who is a relative of his first wife, Marjorie Weinman. The New York police department is now conducting an active criminal investigation.
On the tape, Collins appears to admit to several incidents, and even gives some details of the sexual contact involved. The alleged incidents happened years ago, but authorities believe they may still have a case for prosecution.
Sex crime investigators went to Los Angeles a few weeks ago to interview Collins, 67, about the incidents, which took place around 2012, the source said.
“We have an active investigation involving Stephen Collins,” the source said.
No charges have been filed against the actor. The exact dates and locations of the alleged sex attacks were not immediately revealed.
