Mt. Hermon man jailed for aggravated rape of child


Press Release from the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office:

Lee Jerome Lewis, 57, a resident of Mt. Hermon, was jailed on October 28 on two counts of aggravated rape of a minor.

The investigation by the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Detective Division was the result of a complaint alleging ongoing sexual abuse of the child. After a thorough investigation, including consultation with child abuse professionals and medical personnel, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Detective Demmie Rice obtained a warrant for the arrest of Lewis who was taken into custody by Washington Parish patrol deputies at his place of employment in Franklinton.

Lewis has been in the Washington Parish Jail on four previous occasions since 2010. Previous charges include aggravated assault, forgery, attempted automobile theft, and being a fugitive from another jurisdiction in 2010 and again in 2015.

“Despicable, contemptible, disgraceful, loathsome, reprehensible and vile are only a few of the descriptive words that come to my mind as I review the details of this sordid case,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “To sexually prey on any person is horrible and without excuse. To sexually prey on a child exceeds all bounds of human decency. I am so grateful for the hard work of our detective division, particularly Detective Rice, on this very sensitive matter.”
