'Young and the Restless' actor Corey Sligh indicted by grand jury on child molestation charges

An actor who previously appeared on "The Young and the Restless" faces up to 20 years in prison on child molestation charges. He was indicted Monday by a federal grand jury.

Corey Sligh, who last appeared on the CBS show in 2014, allegedly had multiple victims, including a girl younger than 10 years old. After one of the victim's parents contacted authorities, Sligh was arrested on October 2016 and released on bail -- but was arrested again in November, after a second victim's parent made similar accusations.

Sligh interacted with the the second victim while her family was on vacation in Florida. Her mother reported to police that Sligh had touched the child inappropriately, and the child said she also was forced to touch him.
