Man who raped Fresno woman gets 36 years in prison


The man who beat and raped a woman in Fresno last year was sentenced to 36 years in prison Friday, Fresno County court officials said.

In September, several sexual assault charges were filed against Micah Collins after police said he assaulted and raped a 52-year-old homeless woman.

A surveillance camera in the back of AM Beauty Supply near Shields and Palm avenues captured the entire attack.

He was ordered into the custody of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
