Convicted Sex Offender Charged Again

(Michigan City, IN) - A Michigan City man could face significant time behind bars on multiple child sex counts.  Bertrell Randle, 41, allegedly molested a girl who was under 14 on more than one occasion in 2016 then engaged in sexual intercourse with her in 2018.  That’s the picture drawn by the allegations filed in La Porte Superior Court 1.


According to court documents, the investigation began in October after the girl came forward with the allegations.  The girl told investigators she kept quiet about what was happening out of fear of being harmed but opened up because he is now “far away and can’t hurt her.”


According to court records, Randle has a prior conviction for sexual misconduct with a minor and child solicitation.  He was arrested on April 28 and continued to be held on $100,000 bond. 


Randle could face as much as a 64 year sentence.
