A man who was out on bond on a rape charge when he was arrested for child rape has been sentenced to serve 25 years in state prison.
Edward Dewhite "Man" Collins, 21, of 5590 Woodlawn Dr., appeared before Criminal Court Judge Barry Steelman for a guilty plea on the child rape.
The boy said Collins entered his bedroom and sexually assaulted him from behind.
Police said an examination of the child at Children's Hospital showed he had been injured.
Collins, who had been staying with the boy's family, initially denied the charge.
