A former “Young and the Restless” actor from Cherokee County has been arrested for the second time in two months on child molestation charges.

Corey Seth Sligh, 29, of Canton, was arrested Sunday in Walton County, Fla. He is out of jail on $100,000 bond.

Sligh allegedly touched a girl under the age of 10 while she was vacationing with her family on Rosemary Beach in June and July, according to media reports. The girl also told authorities Sligh forced her to touch him inappropriately.

The actor was arrested in Cherokee County in October on accusations he’d molested a girl from April to September. That alleged victim was also under 10.

Sligh bonded out a day after that arrest on $22,000 and reportedly said he was innocent of the charges.

Authorities were notified about both incidents in September.

According to media reports, Sligh must wear an ankle monitor following his most recent arrest.

Sligh was an extra on the long-running CBS soap opera, according to online entertainment site TMZ. He also appeared in a short-lived TV show, "All About Lizzie," according to his IMDb page.
