This is so twisted! Corey Sligh is being accused of child molestation, according to a new report. The actor, best known for his role on ‘Young & The Restless,’ was arrested on Nov. 14 after allegedly abusing a girl under the age of ten. Read all the shocking details, here!
What an awful way to start our Monday! Corey Sligh, 28, an actor from the hit 70’s show Young And The Restless, was arrested in his home state of Georgia on account of child molestation, according to TMZ. The arrest took place on Nov. 14, but Corey didn’t sit behind bars for long at all as he was released later that day after coughing up a $22,000 bond. The child star is being accused of allegedly sexually abusing a girl, who remains unnamed, under the age of 10!
Corey’s parents reported the crime on Sept. 24 and claim the molestation occurred between the five months of Apr. to Sept. It is unclear how many times he allegedly abused her. For the time being, Corey’s reps aren’t spilling the beans as to what truly happened, but the actor did say this — “I am innocent and fighting this until the end, and the truth will prevail,” to TMZ.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Corey has made headline news for all the wrong reasons. The actor gained tons of media attention in Nov. 2014 when he was unintentionally hit by a car. Corey and his girlfriend were doing some Thanksgiving shopping when he was struck inside the department’s parking garage. But this where it gets weird…after being hit, Corey was BEAT UP by the driver! His injuries sent him to the hospital, and the man who attacked him, named Nikola Ilic was charged with battery. Corey was treated at LA’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after suffering from multiple injuries and broken bones. If Corey is found innocent of child molestation, we hope he can catch a break!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Corey is innocent, or guilty?
