Pretty tough to make it back from a child molesting charge if you are this former A- list mostly television actor who recently molested a teen who was selling candy door to door for a school fundraiser.
Her parents are trying to settle without going to the police because they don’t want their daughter to have to be identified, which they fear will happen.
Stephen Collins Confesses Sexual Abuse of Underage Girls to PEOPLE: ‘I Did Something Terribly Wrong’
Stephen Collins shares a vividly detailed confession with PEOPLE in which he admits he had inappropriate sexual conduct with underage girls. Subscribe now to access the complete statement, only in PEOPLE.
Embattled actor Stephen Collins has released a lengthy statement to PEOPLE in which he admits to inappropriate sexual conduct with three female minors.
The 67-year-old – who has remained out of the public eye ever since a recording of him confessing to child molestation was released to TMZ – goes into detail about the incidents that occurred over a 20-year time span. In vivid detail, Collins explains how there were three victims from 1973 to 1994, and how “I have not had an impulse to act out in any such way” in the last 20 years.
Collins also writes about why he hasn’t apologized directly to the women he once assaulted.
“Forty years ago, I did something terribly wrong that I deeply regret. I have been working to atone for it ever since. I’ve decided to address these issues publicly because two months ago, various news organizations published a recording made by my then-wife, Faye Grant, during a confidential marriage therapy session in January, 2012. This session was recorded without the therapist’s or my knowledge or consent.” – Source
