Jury Decides On 693 Years For Man Convicted Of Sex Crimes
MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — A jury that convicted a Texas man of repeatedly sexually assaulting a child has decided he should serve nearly 700 years in prison.
Jurors on Thursday gave Kelley Alexander Lewis 99 years in prison for each of seven counts of sexual assault of a child.
Prosecutors say the attacks on a family member under the age of 14 took place over a nearly four-month period in 2014.
The range of punishment on each count was five to 99 years in prison. Midland County prosecutors say jurors decided Lewis, of Midland, deserved the maximum punishment, totaling 693 years.
They also fined him $10,000 for each count.
