Tift Co.- A public access television personality will serve ten years in prison. Donnell Collins of Tifton pled guilty Friday to molesting a child.

Collins hosted the Donnell Collins gospel show on Tifton's local access channel, the Fun Channel. He also ran a game room in Tifton, a popular hangout for children. He later turned that into a video production company.

The 10 year sentence was recommended by Tifton's District Attorney in a plea bargain agreement. He'll also pay a $1,000 fine and perform 120 hours of community service.

If the 44 year old Collins had gone to trial, he would've faced charges of aggravated child molestation and enticing a child.
