Troy Lewis, 21, is currently in prison for a January 2010 home invasion and is serving between five and 15 years on those charges. However, he’s facing more charges for incidents in January, March, June and July of this year, according to court records.

Lewis is facing three charges of first-degree home invasion, a charge each of assault with intent to rob, assault with a dangerous weapon and a felony firearms charge for a Jan. 14 incident, according to court records.

Court records state charges related to a March 9 incident includes two counts each of armed robbery and first-degree home invasion, one count each of carrying a firearm with unlawful intent and possession of a firearm, intentionally firing a firearm at a home or occupied building, assault with a dangerous weapon and a felony firearms charge.

In the March 9 incident, Lewis and an accomplice are believed to have knocked on the front door of a residence at about 12:50 a.m. in the 100 block of Riley Court. Lewis and his accomplice asked for a man who didn’t live there and then asked for a man the victim knew, before kicking down the door and pointing silver handguns at the victim, according to police. The victim was also struck in the head with the butt of a gun.

The gun fired one shot but did not hit anyone, police said. Lewis and his accomplice took an unknown amount of money and left the scene, according to police.

Lewis is accused of assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest stemming from a June 14 incident, according to court records.

Lewis is charged with two counts of assaulting a police and resisting arrest on July 29, when he was arrested in the Sycamore Meadows apartment complex at about noon.

He is due back in court for a pretrial hearing at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 17 in Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz’s courtroom, according to court records.

When will they be cutting his hair? And will we get to see a before and after photo?

Why do you care about his hair? And why would you want to see a before and after photo? What is important is what he is alleged to have done, not what he looks like. He's already in prison; it's not like you need to be on the lookout for him.

I'm glad he's got Judge Swartz

Buck Wild brings up an interesting point. Maybe we should adopt the old British / Australian system of sending crimminals stripped of their citenzenship off to a different land such as Antartica? It would be a test of their resourcefulness. If they made something of it it would be a new market for our goods & services instead of making us victims twice. First the crime and then treatment better then his victems with free room & board, exercise, and minimal pay. Redemption seems to not work. Therefore a little back to the basics woulde separate the survivors. Seemed to work for Australia why not in the Antartic? One argument against it is our system doesn't throw people away. Yes. we do, what is prison; but a system of "we give up". Genetically some of us just don't fit in with a group no matter how hard they try. The loss of a frontier with 7 billion people standing on less then 25% of dry land is a loss of an escape valve.

Can't we just ship him back the the 1970s, the decade from whence he came?

18 charges? He is due in court for a pretrial hearing the 17th. I hope he is charged for each and everyone one. ( No plea, no slap on the hands)

"The gun fired one shot" Typo, It sounds better if you say" the suspect fired one shot."

But that would go against the bias that the media have been engaging in or decades. We all know that inanimate objects cannot act on their own. Or it could just be poor copy and editting....or both

I'm glad we are finally able to publish his name....thanks for that.
