During a hearing on November 10, prosecutors asked that Gregory Lewis, 26, be kept in jail before his trial, an Associated Press article stated.
According to a prosecutor, Southbridge resident Lewis should be considered a a public threat and should be prevented from making bail. Lewis reportedly was captured in New York last October after claims of sexually assaulting women in several states, including a minor in his hometown. A testimonial from a Southbridge officer revealed that they received reports from police departments in other states regarding Lewis.
Lewis’ defense argued against the language used to describe Lewis, as he reminded the court that Lewis is innocent until proven guilty–not the other way around. Facing over a dozen charges, Lewis is expected to appear in court on December 15.
