In Federal court, U.S. District Court Judge William H. Steele ordered Lewis to seek drug treatment while in prison that he serve a period of one year on supervised release after he completes his sentence. Under supervision, Lewis will be subject to drug testing and treatment. Steele also ordered Lewis pay a special mandatory assessment of $100, but he didn’t impose a fine.

The Selma Police Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive investigated the case, where it was prosecuted in the U.S. Attorney’s Office by Assistant U.S. Attorney Gloria A. Rockwell.
