Despite sound evidence of 7th Heaven star Stephen Collins confessing to molesting kids, TMZ reports he will not be prosecuted for child molestation due to a loophole in the law. Over the last couple weeks, there had been recordings released that everyone believed would put Collins away for a long time. Instead of the law helping put away the guilty, it is helping a child molester escape punishment despite his disturbing actions.
TMZ reports that the NYPD and LAPD is closing Collins’ case because of the long gap between his molestation and confession. A TMZ rep reports that, “All 3 cases are decades old, and our sources say prosecution would be barred by the statute of limitations.” Despite clear cut audio evidence, Collins is a free man.
