Actor investigated for child molestation

Stephen Collins, who played Eric Camden, pastor and patriarch in the beloved television series 7th Heaven is currently under investigation for child molestation it has been reported.

In a recording obtained by TMZ, a voice, allegedly the actor’s, can be heard speaking about inappropriate interactions with up to three girls between the ages of 11-13.

The admission was made while in therapy with his wife, Faye Grant back in 2012 where he told her he “molested and/or exposed himself to some children.”

Unknown to Stephen or his therapist, his wife recorded the conversation, which is allowed in California as a means of collecting evidence that somebody has committed a violent crime. 

Police have since visited his wife to investigate the recording.
