Los Angeles : Model-actor Corey Sligh, who appeared on American television show "The Young and the Restless", has been found guilty of molesting a minor girl and can face up to 20 years jail term.

Sligh was arrested in his hometown of Canton, Georgia, in 2016 and charged after the victim's parents filed a police complaint against the actor for allegedly touching their daughter, who was less than 10-year-old then, in an inappropriate manner, and asking her to do the same.

On June 28, the jury found Sligh guilty on one count of molesting a girl younger than 10 years, reports people.com

The 31-year-old actor faces five to 20 years in prison and is being held in the Cherokee County jail.

Sligh awaits trial on another similar case in Florida.
