It has been a dramatic few years for actor and model Corey Sligh. After being hit by a car and attacked in 2014, the former “The Young and the Restless” actor has now been arrested and booked for child molestation in Georgia.

According to a report from TMZ, The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office says the actor was caught in October after the child’s parents reported the alleged molestation in September. According to the report, the alleged victim is a girl who was under 10 years old at the time. 

It is believed that the alleged molestation took place between April and September but it is unclear if it happened more than once. Representatives for Sligh have yet to comment on the allegations.


In 2014, while delivering a Thanksgiving meal with his girlfriend in West Hollywood, California, Sligh was hit by a car after he told the driver to slow down. The driver and a passenger were said to be driving erratically in a Rite Aid parking lot. After hitting Sligh with the car, the two men then got out and began to attack him.

“The guy walked up on him like, ‘I’m in the mood to kill somebody and this is who it’s going to be because he told me to be careful and slow down and go away,’” Sligh’s girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, told KLAC9.

The actor was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he received surgery on a broken arm. The two men responsible for the attack were arrested.

Sligh last appeared on the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless” in 2014. He had a recurring role as a waiter and a bartender.
