The New York Police Department is reportedly investigating Stephen Collins for child molestation after the actor, best known as the father on “7th Heaven,” allegedly confessed on a secret recording to molesting three girls, TMZ reports.
The NYPD confirmed to TMZ that it was looking into at least three possible victims.
TMZ obtained the tape, which the gossip website says is from a therapy session with Collins and his estranged wife, actress Faye Grant. Sources told TMZ that Grant’s lawyer advised her to record the conversation.
On the tape, which TMZ posted on its website, Collins admits to having sexual contact with three minors over several years. He admitted to inappropriate touching with one girl and exposing himself to others. Grant and Collins are in the process of getting a divorce.
One girl lived in Collins’ neighborhood in Los Angeles, and another girl from New York was a relative of his first wife.
