(PEOPLE) Embattled actor Stephen Collins has released a lengthy statement to PEOPLE in which he admits to inappropriate sexual contact with three female minors.
The 67-year-old – who has remained out of the public eye ever since a recording of him confessing to child molestation was released to TMZ – goes into detail about the incidents that occurred over a 20-year time span. In vivid detail, Collins explains how there were three victims from 1973 to 1994, and how "I have not had an impulse to act out in any such way" in the last 20 years.
Collins also writes about why he hasn't apologized directly to the women he once assaulted.
