Former Slaton Officer Pleads Not Guilty To Porn Charges

A former Slaton police officer will go to trial in August on child pornography charges. 50-year-old Richard Lee “Rick” Lewis was indicted in early June on six counts of possessing, receiving, and transporting sexually explicit images of children. Yesterday he appeared in federal court in Lubbock and entered a not guilty plea. On May 11th Lewis’ home was searched by investigators who reportedly seized 10 VHS tapes, 80 CDs and three computers. He resigned from the Slaton Police the next day, admitting to downloading and viewing the illicit images. His trial is scheduled to begin August 15th.
