Convicted rapist fails to register as sex offender

LAWTON, Okla._A convicted rapist is back behind bars in Lawton after police say he failed to register as a sex offender.

Police say 55-year-old Mark Collins did not respond to letters sent to his address by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. When officers went out to check, Collins told them he had not planned to register because he felt he was wrongly convicted. Collins was sentenced to prison for first-degree rape in 1997.

He was released in March 2014 after spending more than 16 years behind bars.
