10 minute verdict: Wichita County jury finds Lewis guilty


It took a Wichita County jury only 10 minutes Tuesday to find Bobby Fitzgerald Lewis guilty on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child.


Lewis, 41, is already serving 80 years in prison for similar crimes committed while living in Clay County, near the Wichita County line.

Bob Brotherton, 30th District Judge, is expected to announce Lewis’ punishment today. Lewis could receive up to 99 years for each charge of aggravated assault and 20 years for the charge of indecency with a child.

The verdict followed testimony from two victims and a forensics interviewer from Patsy’s House.

While living in Wichita Falls, Lewis sexually assaulted two girls multiple times from July 2006 until March 2007. One of Lewis’ victims in Wichita Falls was also his victim in Clay County.

In March 2011, Lewis was convicted in Clay County on two counts of continuous sexual abuse of a young child and one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child for molesting three girls, then ages 12-14, from November 2008 through December 2009.

He was sentenced to 40 years for the first count and 30 years for the second count of continuous sexual abuse, and 10 years for the aggravated sexual assault charge. Judge Roger Towery of the 97th District Court ordered the sentences to be served consecutively.
