Man guilty of not paying child support



A Lawrence County man will be sentenced next month for failing to pay more than $33,000 in child support.

Eric D. Lewis, 42, of Bedford, was convicted Tuesday. A 12-member jury spent 10 minutes deliberating before returning with the guilty verdict, Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney Amy Marie Travis said.

The sentencing hearing will at 11 a.m. July 24 in Jackson Circuit Court.

Lewis was accused of being delinquent in his court-ordered child support obligation in excess of $33,000, Travis said.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Donald M. Frey said it’s rare for a nonsupport case handled by the county’s Child Support Division to wind up in court.
