‘7th Heaven’ Dad Stephen Collins – Confesses on Tape to Child Molestation … NYPD Investigating
Stephen Collins — who played the pastor/dad on “7th Heaven” — confessed to his estranged wife he was a child molester, and it’s all on tape … a tape obtained by TMZ. And the New York Police Dept. is now conducting an active criminal investigation involving sexual contact with multiple children.
Collins — who is in the middle of a nasty, prolonged divorce with actress Faye Grant — revealed to her in 2012 he had molested and/or exposed himself to several underage girls years before. Collins and Grant went to a therapist where she peppered him with questions about the incidents … and he not only answered, he was specific.
You hear Collins flatly confess to molesting an 11-year-old New York girl — a relative of his first wife — saying, “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.
And then they talk about yet another girl. It’s incredible … Collins has trouble keeping the girls straight, but then he gets clear and confirms the incident. We’re told this girl was also from New York and was between 12 and 13 at the time.
An NYPD official tells TMZ … there is a current, active investigation. The official says there are “at least 3 victims” and the nature of the investigation is “inappropriate sexual contact with minors.”

Stephen Collins No Longer in ‘7th Heaven’
With this damning evidence, Stephen Collins is in hot water. The NYPD has said that this case can still be prosecuted. But some of these incidents took place decades ago? Luckily, the statute of limitations runs from the day of reporting.
Stephen Collins throughout his career has come in contact with many underage actresses. Apparently, from his confessions, he is a sexual predator. His wholesome image has definitely been tarnished. To think, Stephen Collins’ claim to fame was his role as a father, a pastor, raising his family in the Christian faith and dealing with the daily struggles between life and faith. What will the Christian community’s reaction be?
In recent years, Christianity has been dragged through the mud by a few sexual deviants, such as the Catholic boy molestations. Now, I know that 7th Heaven was just a television show, not reality. But many people feel that the show portrayed a good valued, Christian family and left viewers with warm feelings. However, will 7th Heaven no longer be shown in syndication if Stephen Collins is convicted of child molestation? Only time will tell.
