The actor was apprehended in his home state of Georgia, according to TMZ. According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, Sligh was busted after the parents of a 10-year-old child reported the alleged molestation on September 24.

A few weeks later, Sligh was arrested in October. He was released on the same day after posting $22,000 bail.

From the court documents, it is unclear how many times Sligh was accused of molesting the child but the alleged acts of molestation took place between April and September.
