Man indicted on 100 counts of sexual child exploitation

By Cade Fowler - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Prosecutors say they'll throw the book at an Albany man indicted today on 100 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of child molestation.

28-year-old Ricky Randle has been in the Dougherty County jail since he was arrested late last year.

The charges were filed during a joint investigation in Mitchell and Dougherty Counties after two girls claimed he molested them.

Investigators found illegal pictures of children on his Blackberry.

Prosecutors say they won't tolerate crimes against children.

"This office is going to take a stiff and stern approach to this case. Our children are a very valuable resource, and we have to make sure that we protect that resource," said Dougherty Asst. District Attorney Chris Cohilas

Randle's girlfriend, Regina Jay, was indicted on one count of sexual exploitation for allowing Randle access to a 6-year-old girl.

Prosecutors ask anyone whose child may have had contact with Randle to contact the Dougherty County District Attorney's Office.
