Stephen Collins, best known for his role as Eric Camden, father and pastor, on 7th Heaven, is under investigation for child molestation.

EW has confirmed that the Manhattan Special Victims Squad received a formal complaint against the actor and that the incident is currently being investigated.

Word first broke when TMZ posted the audio from a 2012 therapy session between Collins and then-wife Faye Grant, who filed for divorce that same year. In the audio, Collins admits to molesting one girl and exposing himself to others, all of whom were reportedly between the ages of 10 and 13.
