A Martin man who is already serving a prison sentence for sex crimes against a child pleaded guilty on the state level in 27th Judicial District Circuit Court Thursday.
Randall J. Collier, 46, of Martin was indicted on federal charges in April 2011 for engaging in sexual acts with a 10-year-old child. According to the indictment, Collier coerced the child into engaging in sex acts in 2099.
A nearly two-year investigation launched by the Martin Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation led to the discovery of digital images of the sex acts.
Collier was sentenced in federal court Feb. 23 to 30 years in prison for the crimes.
Collier was also indicted on a state level by a Weakley County Grand Jury for child rape and aggravated sexual battery.
He pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual battery in court Thursday. As part of the plea agreement between his attorney, public defender Joe Atnip, and District Attorney General Tommy Thomas, Collier was ordered to serve a concurrent eight-year sentence in the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
He will serve 100 percent of the sentence, with a potential reduction for “good behavior.” Collier will also remain on the National Sex Offender Registry for his lifetime.
