SPRINGFIELD - The U.S. Department of Justice has announced that a Logan County man who pleaded guilty to receiving images of child pornography has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Authorities say Ronald Collins, 56, pleaded guilty in January to receiving the images on his cell phone from June 2013 to May 2014.  Authorities also say that Collins has a prior felony conviction for aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Montgomery County.

Collins has remained in the U.S. Marshals Service's custody since being charged in September 2014.  In addition to 25 years in prison, Collins must pay a $5,000 fine, and will be placed on supervised release for life after serving his sentence.
