Corey Sligh, a former actor on The Young and the Restless and Days of Our Lives, has been arrested for child molestation!
According to the report, Sligh, who has recurred on Y&R as a waiter at the Genoa City Athletic Club and was also a waiter on DAYS, was arrested and booked for child molestation in his home state of Georgia. A rep for the Cherokee Country Sheriff’s Office says Sligh was arrested on October 14. The child’s parents reported the alleged molestation on September 24.
TMZ added that the alleged victim was under 10 years old at the time and that the alleged acts of molestation occurred between April and September.
This isn’t the first time that Sligh has been written about by TMZ. In December of 2014, the site reported that Sligh was recovering from being beaten up on Thanksgiving Day while he was living in Los Angeles following an altercation in a drug store parking lot.
Sligh took his ordeal in 2014 as well as could be expected, expressing gratitude that his injuries weren’t worse and joked that he’d finally made The Hollywood Reporter as a result of his misfortune.
Sligh has stayed off social media since his arrest; he’s shared no statement on on his Facebook or Twitter accounts. His Instagram account is private. He posted a Days of Our Lives clip of himself appearing as “Corey” in a scene with Freddie Smith (Sonny) on June 26, 2015.
TMZ adds that it has reached out to Sligh’s reps but they have not responded as of yet.
