Lewis Guilty of Aggravated Sexual Assault of Two Girls

It took a jury in the 30th District Court just 10 minutes to return the verdict.
    A jury finds a Clay County man guilty of the aggravated sexual assault of two Wichita County girls.
    It took the jury only 10 minutes to return that verdict.
    They found Bobby Fitzgerald Lewis guilty of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, and one count of indecency with a child.
    Lead prosecutor John Gillespie asked for 99 years in prison for each of the aggravated sexual assault charges, and 20 years for the charge of indecency with a child.
    Lewis waived his right to an attorney, and instead chose to represent himself throughout the trial.
    Both victims testified in the courtroom today.
    The first victim said Lewis assaulted her over a period of six years.
    She said she often told him to stop and would even try kicking him off of her, but he would hold her down and continue the abuse.
    The second said she would wake up to Lewis assaulting her, so she would often wear jeans to bed or wrap herself tightly in a blanket to deter him from molesting her.
    A forensic interviewer from Patsy's House also testified today.
    She said one of the girls was sexually abused by Lewis at least 50 times.
    The trial continues tomorrow in the 30th District Court, when Judge Bob Brotherton is expected to announce punishment.
    In a Clay County trial last year, Lewis was convicted of sexually assaulting three girls ages 12 to 13 from Nov. 2008 to Dec. 2009.
    He was sentenced to 80 years in prison and must serve at least 40 years before becoming eligible for parole for the Clay County convictions.
