Stephen Collins, who played a reverend on the long-running series 7th Heaven, the president in Falling Skies and a doctor on Revolution and No Ordinary Family is under investigation for molestating multiple underage girls ages 11 to 13.
Collins confessed to the crimes in therapy sessions with his wife that were recorded in 2012 and leaked to TMZ. In the sessions, he admits to exposing himself to a neighbor, a relative of his first wife and another girl from New York.
His wife, Faye Grant, is currently in the process of divorcing him, but claims to have had nothing to do with the leak. (Not that anyone would blame her for wanting the world know.)
“There was one moment of touching where her hand, I put her hand on my penis.” He also acknowledges exposing himself to the girl “a couple of times” … he says when she was 11, 12 and 13.
Grant asks, “When you exposed yourself … did you have an erection?” He responds, “No, I mean, no. Partial, maybe I think.”
Grant then inquires about other girls. Collins mentions an L.A. girl who lived in their neighborhood, but says he tried righting the wrong by apologizing to her years later.
In court documents, Grant said, “I am particularly afraid of what may happen if he does not seek treatment, because he may be working or interacting with children in connection with his employment.”
Collins has already been fired from Ted 2, so hopefully other job offers will extinguish/dry up.
