On March 9, Lewis broke into an apartment on Riley Court with the intent to rob the residents. He said in court that he had a gun on him while he was breaking into the apartment and hit one of the people inside with it.
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. In exchange for his plea, two charges of armed robbery, a first -degree home invasion charge and a charge of discharging a firearm in a building were dismissed.
Lewis said in court that on Jan. 14, 2011, he also broke into an apartment in the 1300 block of Chestnut Drive. He said a woman helped him break into the apartment, and she was present with another man when Lewis and a companion broke into the residence.
During the break-in, Lewis assaulted the man who was at the apartment with the woman and told his partner to point a gun at him as a threat, saying he wanted to rob him of his money, he said. However, he was not in possession of the gun, Lewis said.
Lewis pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree home invasion, assault with intent to rob while armed and a felony firearms charge in that case. In exchange for his plea, a first-degree home invasion charge and an assault with a dangerous weapon charge were dropped.
Lewis also pleaded guilty to one charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer for a June incident.
He's been convicted of first-degree home invasion and second-degree home invasion and was sentenced on Sept. 1 to serve between five years and 15 years in prison. His new sentence will run concurrent to the prison time he already is serving, according to court officials.
