Stephen Collins Scandal: Jailed For Child Molestation Charges
Stephen Collins confesses to inappropriate sexual behavior with young females in an incredibly detailed interview with PEOPLE. To see the complete statement, available only in PEOPLE, subscribe immediately.
Stephen Collins, the embattled Actor, has issued a lengthy letter to PEOPLE in which he confesses to having inappropriate sexual behavior with three female adolescents.
The 67-year-old, who has remained anonymous since a recording of him confessing to child molestation was made public and given to T.M.Z., goes into great detail about the acts that took place over 20 years.
Collins describes in great detail how there were three victims between 1973 and 1994 and how, for the past 20 years, ” I haven’t felt the urge to act out in such a way.”
Collins also discusses why he hasn’t expressed his regret to the former victims of his assault. The New York City Police Department started looking into Stephen Collins in October 2014 after an audio recording released to the public showed a male voice—supposed to be Collins’ voice—admitting to previously sexually abusing a youngster under 14.
According to a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department, Collins was the subject of an investigation in 2012 after the department was made aware of an accusation of sexual abuse made 40 years earlier.
The LAPD added that their probe had prevented it from “substantiating the claim” against Collins. Collins acknowledged having “inappropriate sexual behavior” with three female adolescents in 1973, 1982, and 1994 in a People interview from December 2014.
