New Sentencing Ordered For Soldier

KSAL StaffJune 13, 2014

The Kansas Supreme Court has ordered a lower court to resentence a Fort Riley soldier who received five life sentences as a habitual sexual offender.

In a unanimous decision announced Friday, the high court upheld the Riley County convictions of Tony Tremayne Lewis on several charges, including rape and aggravated criminal sodomy in three attacks in 2009.

He was sentenced as a habitual sexual offender based on earlier conviction in Geary County for rape and other charges.

The Supreme Court upheld his convictions, but also ruled that the district court erred when it imposed the sentence based on a misinterpretation of state law regarding enhanced sentences for aggravated habitual sexual offenders.

The Supreme Court sent the case sent back to Riley County for resentencing.
