Warren County man guilty of sex crimes gets two life sentences


A Warren County man was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences in the Department of Corrections on Sept. 7 after being convicted of sex crimes earlier this year.

Arthur Noel Lewis Jr. was found guilty on June 29 of statutory sodomy in the first degree with two victims younger than 14.

Warren County Prosecuting Attorney Kelly King issued a statement following the sentencing.

“Crimes against children are among the most heinous offenses in society. I know the evidence in this case was difficult to have to hear, and I want to extend my sincere appreciation to the jury. 

“Mr. Lewis has two prior convictions for sexual misconduct. In this case, he perpetrated on two very young victims proving he is a danger to the community. While nothing can undo the harm he caused them, I do hope they now have closure and are able to find some solace in knowing he won’t be able to victimize another child. 

“His criminal history and these offenses warranted my recommendation for consecutive life sentences with no eligibility for parole for sixty years,” King's statement read.
