Lewis man charged with rape, sex abuse

LEWIS — A 22-year-old Lewis man was charged with rape and sexual abuse on Thursday.

In 2006, the man, then 15 years old, raped a 7-year-old, State Police said.

Police could not release the man’s name because the law protects the identity of juvenile defendants.

He was charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, both felonies.

He was released on an appearance ticket and is scheduled to be in Essex County Family Court at a later date, police said.
