WORCESTER – Gregory Lewis was sentenced to 10 to 12 years in state prison after pleading guilty yesterday to an array of charges stemming from incidents in Southbridge in 2014, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr.
Lewis, 30, of Southbridge was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Janet Kenton-Walker to 10-12 years for armed robbery. The judge also sentenced Lewis to prison for four counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14; assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person over 60; assault and battery on a person over 60 with injury; witness intimidation; four counts of larceny; possession of a firearm without an FID card; possession of ammunition without an FID card; and receiving stolen property over $250. The judge ordered all prison sentenced to be served concurrently.
Lewis was sentenced to two years of probation on a kidnapping charge that the judge ordered to begin upon his release from prison.
Assistant District Attorney Courtney Sans recommended a sentence of 25 to 30 years in state prison. Ms. Sans was assisted in the prosecution by Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Kilmurray. Southbridge Police and the State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section also worked hard on this case.
Soon after his arrest in Southbridge on indecent assault and battery charges in 2014, Lewis cut off his court-ordered GPS bracelet and fled. He has been charged with crimes in Oregon, Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia. He was captured in upstate New York and returned Massachusetts in October of 2014.
