A former Edwardsville D.A.R.E. officer has been charged with one felony count of unauthorized video recording after he was caught photographing three different women inside a Glen Carbon tanning salon in April 2012. 47-year old Michael R. Collins was sentenced to two years' probation Monday as part of a plea deal with prosecutors. In exchange for Collins' guilty plea to one count, prosecutors agreed to drop the other two counts and he would sentenced to two years probation. Collins resigned from his post in April 2012 and was released on his own recognizance.
