‘Young and the Restless’ Alum Corey Sligh Indicted on Child Molestation Charges

Actor was arrested in October and November for alleged inappropriate behavior

Former soap opera actor Corey Sligh has a major real-life drama on his hands.

Sligh, whose credits include “The Young and the Restless,” was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of child molestation Monday, People reports.

Sligh, 30, was arrested and charged with child molestation in October, a spokesman for the Cherokee County, Georgia, sheriff’s office told TheWrap last year. According to the spokesman, the female victim was younger than 10 years old at the time of the alleged molestation.

According to an arrest report obtained by TheWrap, the alleged molestation was reported on Sept. 24. The alleged molestation took place between April and September 2016, the report said.

Sligh was also arrested in Florida in November, after a woman alleged that he had inappropriately touched their daughter, according to People.

The “Young and the Restless” alum is scheduled for arraignment next month.

Sligh previously made headlines in late 2014, when he was assaulted on Thanksgiving night.

“I thought it was over,” Sligh told TheWrap at the time as he described being slammed by a car door, then run over by the vehicle and later beaten. The incident occurred while Sligh and his girlfriend were delivering a warm Thanksgiving dinner to a friend who worked at the Rite Aid on Fairfax Avenue and Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Sligh’s other credits include the series “All About Lizzie.”
