Stephen Collins will not face any legal repercussions for his alleged history of sexual abuse.

As previously reported, the former 7th Heaven admitted in a 2012 audio recording (below) to having inappropriately exposed his private parts to three girls between the ages of 10 and 13.

In a couples therapy session secretly recorded by his estranged wife at the time, Collins also says he placed the hand of a young girl on his partially erect penis.

HOWEVER, police have already said that the statute of limitations has expired on these cases, all of which took place in the 1970s. As a result, Collins will not be prosecuted.

Now, TMZ also confirms that the victim who came forward in 2012 will not sue Collins because she says she isn’t interested in her money.


The unnamed woman is the same person whose hand Collins placed on his penis back in the 1970s.

But she says she only came forward all these years later because she wants to encourage other women Collins may have molested to do the same.

Faye Grant, Collins’ estranged wife who made the recording, has alleged that the actor committed similarly heinous acts at some point in the past few years.

She’s involved in a bitter divorce battle with Collins, whose attorney says Grant has been trying to extort Collins for millions by threatening to release this recording.

Grant denies this charge. 

But Collins is yet to deny the actual child molestation charges and, even if he won’t face legal consequences as a result, he’ll clearly never work as an actor again.
