In the first case, stemming from a March 9 incident on Riley Court, Lewis admitted to entering an apartment without permission to rob the residents. Lewis said in court on Thursday that he had a gun on him while he was breaking into the apartment and hit one of the occupants with the pistol.
In that case, Lewis pleaded guilty to first-degree home invasion, carrying a weapon with unlawful intent, being a felon in possession of a firearm, assault with a dangerous weapon and a felony firearms charge. Two charges of armed robbery, a first-degree home invasion charge and a charge of discharging a firearm in a building were all dismissed.
In the second case, Lewis admitted to breaking into an apartment on Jan. 14 in the 1300 block of Chestnut Drive after conspiring with a woman for her to help him break into the apartment. Lewis said he and another man broke into the apartment with the intent to steal money or property, and the woman and another man were present at the time.
At some point during the incident, Lewis assaulted the man who was at the apartment and encouraged his partner to point the gun at him as a threat to rob him of his money. Lewis did not actually have possession of the gun during that incident, he said.
In that case, Lewis pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree home invasion, assault with intent to rob while armed and a felony firearms charge. A second first-degree home invasion charge and an assault with a dangerous weapons charge were dismissed.
Lewis also pleaded guilty to one charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer for a June incident.
Lewis will return to court to be officially sentenced at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 19 by Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz. He is already serving prison time for a probation violation conviction.
