Actor Corey Sligh -- who was an extra on 'Young and the Restless' -- was arrested and booked for child molestation in his home state of Georgia.
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office says Sligh was busted last month after the child's parents reported the alleged molestation on Sept. 24. We're told the alleged victim is a girl who was under 10 at the time. Corey tells TMZ, "I am innocent and fighting this until the end, and the truth will prevail."
Cherokee County is a part of the Atlanta metro area with a population of 214,000.
The fact that a criminal case is proceeding, generally, would not prevent the victim's parents from filing a civil action against Sligh for civil damages.
