Update: Repeat Sex Offender

UPDATE:  Lewis received a life sentence for each of the two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and a twenty year sentence for indecency with a child. 

 

A convicted child sex offender is back on trial in Wichita County.

Bobby Fitzgerald Lewis is already convicted of sexually abusing children in Clay County and sentenced to 80 years in prison, but now he faces charges for sexual assault in Wichita County.

Lewis was found guilty of aggravated sexually assault with a child and one count of indecency with a child on May 1, 2012. 

Trial began Tuesday May 1, 2012.  Lewis chose to represent himself in court.  He had no witnesses and made no opening or closing statements, but he did cross examine some of the states witnesses.

Both of Lewis' young victims took the stand to give their accounts of what they say happened during the accused abuse.  The two girls shared very graphic details and one became very emotional after stepping down from the stand. 

The trial moved along quickly and after calling five witness, the State rested and closed. The jury deliberating for under twenty minutes before they reached their verdict.

During a closing statement the Prosecutor called Lewis a child predator, a monster and said what he did was "nothing short of evil."

Lewis received an 80 year sentence in Clay County for very similar crimes.  Back in 2006, he sexually abused three Clay County girls between the ages of twelve and thirteen. 

He was arrested in 2010 and went to trial in March 2011.  He was charged with three counts of continuous sex abuse of a child and two counts of aggravated sexual assault with a child.
