Stephen Collins May Not Be Prosecuted in Molestation Cases

Stephen Collins is being investigated by the NYPD, LAPD and L.A. County Sheriff's Department.
Stephen Collins may not be prosecuted for either molesting or exposing himself to the three known victims, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

TMZ posted audio of Collins confessing to wife Faye Grant that he molested and/or exposed himself to three girls, ages 11 - 13. The NYPD and the L.A. County Sheriff's Deptartment have open investigations. The LAPD is also looking into the case they closed 2 years ago.

But law enforcement sources in those police departments tell TMZ the cases will go nowhere. All three cases are decades old, and our sources say prosecution would be barred by the statute of limitations.

Grant has alleged Collins molested a child while he was shooting 7th Heaven -- sometime between 1996 and 2007 -- but no such victim has come forward.

Brendon was in town for the Tree City Comic Con.

Police were called to a downtown hotel Friday after reports of a disturbance in the lobby, according a news release from the Boise Police Department.

"When officers arrived, they found the suspect who showed signs of intoxication and repeatedly refused officers commands to stay seated while officers tried to speak with witnesses," the release said.

The hotel staff said Brendon had broken a decorative dish and they wanted to press charges.
