Former Sulphur Springs police chief remains jailed on child sex abuse charges

SULPHUR SPRINGS (KYTX) -- Bond has been set at $250,000 for former Sulphur Springs Police Chief Donnie Lewis, 61, who is being held in the Collin County Detention Center on multiple charges of sexual contact with a child.

Lewis was jailed last Thursday on three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, eight counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact and five counts of sexual assault of a child.

If he is convicted, Lewis faces up to life in prison.

Lewis served as a Sulphur Springs police officer for more than 25 years. After he retired as police chief in June of 2001, he became a patrolman in University Park.

The offenses he is now charged with are alleged to have begun in September of 2001 and continued through 2004. They allegedly involved a female child under the age of 14.

As of Monday morning, Lewis remains in the Collin County Detention Center. An attorney has not been listed for him.
