BAY VILLAGE, Ohio — A man known to his victim’s family as a friend and member of their church was sentenced on several sexual abuse charges Tuesday.
Mark A. Lewis, 58, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for several assaults against the teen boy, which occurred between 2007 and 2010. During the trial, the now 19-year-old victim says Lewis would repeatedly sexually assault him in the victim’s bedroom and inside Lewis’ car. The victim also says Lewis ignored repeated pleas to stop the abuse.
Lewis previously plead guilty to five counts of gross sexual imposition and five counts of kidnapping in the case.
