L.A. Sheriff Investigates Stephen Collins Over Claim of 1983 Sex Crime

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said on Wednesday that they were investigating an indecent exposure and molestation claim against actor Stephen Collins that occurred in 1983.

The Sheriff’s Department said that the allegation was reported to the department on Oct. 9, two days after TMZ posted an audio tape in which a voice that allegedly is Collins admits lewd acts with underage girls.

The L.A. Sheriff’s Department said that Special Victims Bureau detectives are working with the New York Police Department in its investigation of the molestation claims. According to the Los Angeles Times, the NYPD investigation began with a 2012 claim about an incident that occurred 40 years earlier.

The latest allegations were reported to have occurred in the summer of 1983 in West Hollywood, when the alleged victim was 13 years old, authorities said.

In the wake of the allegations, Collins has been dropped from the upcoming movie “Ted 2,” and his talent agency severed ties with him on Friday.
