ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  An Albany man pleads guilty to child molestation and rape charges in Mitchell County.

He still faces a 100 count indictment on child molestation and child exploitation charges in Dougherty County.

Twenty-eight-year-old Ricky Randle was sentenced to 25-years in prison after pleading guilty to one count each of rape, child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes, and aggravated battery.

He was arrested late last year 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.
