Alert Citizen Helps Nab Suspect
The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office says someone spotted Charles “Ricky” Lewis at Charleston Town Center Mall yesterday, and approached an off-duty deputy about it. The person remembered seeing Lewis on television the previous night. The deputy found Lewis and arrested him, and he's been charged with three counts of violation of a protective order (misdemeanors), sexual assault in the first degree (felony), and sexual abuse by a parent/guardian (felony). Magistrate Joe Shelton set a bond of $100,000.00 cash, and Lewis was taken to South Central Regional Jail in lieu of bail.
