Aurora Man Accused Of Sexual Assault

An Aurora man has been charged with six counts of indecent liberties with a child.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office received a sexual assault report back in 2008 involving 48 year old Edward Lewis and a minor. The incident allegedly took place at a home on Highway 33 East in Aurora. Another sexual assault report was also filed against Lewis in 2004.

On August 3rd, 2009, Lieutenant Jamie Cahoon presented the investigation to the Beaufort County Grand Jury, six True Bills of Indictment were returned against Lewis. He was arrested on August 28th and brought before Magistrate Holmes.

He's being held on a $100,000 bond.

    People you should not be so quick to judge. You do not know how law enforcement works obviously, as the one person below has pointed out. Also it is none of your business. You people need to find better things to do. The only thing these blogs are good for is spreading lies and hate. There is only a few people who know the entire truth, so for everyone who is involved lets hope they tell the whole truth. Im sure no one here would like to be bad mouthed on the internet, so stop doing it to others guilty or not. Matthew 7:2

    For those of you who don't know how law enforcement works, let me explain something to you. The reason charges were never filed before was because law enforcement didn't have probable cause to arrest him. When they don't have probable cause the state will then carry the case to a grand jury. A grand jury is six people who sit and get to hear the complaintant tell their story. They don't have to have probable cause all they need is reasonable suspition. And they don't have to talk to the accused or even get to. They can ask anything they want & the complaintant can tell them anything they want. They don't have to have proof to back it up. When law enforcement doesn't have enough probable cause to arrest someone they take it to a grand jury so they can get an inditment. Thats how the system works. So be careful who you judge before you know all the facts...

    Good Ol Edward sure doesnt look like a bad guy from the outside? but doesnt every bad person look like a 'nice' individual, thats how they get away with it so easily.He looks like the guy next door, bc he is. but remember the preacher that got caught with putting cameras in his church, in the bathrooms, in the rooms where ppl changed. he looked MORE than a regualr guy.He preached every week to people. Ed can say innocent all he wants, but he has already confessed to what happend in 04. And if he gets away with it, then God help us all bc i have no idea what the world has come to.

    I will admit to being biased in this case because I worked with the mother for years. She is the kindest and gentlest of souls and probably made a mistake by trying to be kind and give the father another chance, but that's because she has a soft heart, not a soft head. Girls, don't dwell on any of these comments from people who are trying to hurt you. Naturally, his family and friends are going to take up for him. You know the truth and that's what matters. I pray for you and the peace that you will one day find.

    Well everybody should be happy, even though he has not been proven guilty by a gury it has already started. He has lost his job and if he has no job than he can't pay child support and I'm sure if he is not paying his support, she will have him arrested for that. Sorry, that some of the girls are going through this, but some of this is just pure hatered toward him and the family. Nobody will ever know the whole truth and there is only one person in this world that can judge us and that is GOD not one other person, so all you God fearing people should keep your mouth SHUT!!!!

    For everybody sticking up for this loser, go to the sheriff's office or social services, he admitted to doing it in 2004. And if there hadn't been physical evidence for the charges of 2008, why do you think he just got locked up? The sheriff's department and investigators had to have had good reason before they just came and arrested him 5 years after he admitted to the last accusations.

    Edward never touched those girls. If Mom is truly a God-fearing person, she should step up and tell the truth.

    Who really cares what this man is feeling and what his life was like as a child. The fact remains is that this man, and I use this term losly, what needs to be thought about is teh girls feelings and the mothers feelings. This people are victoms, not the criminals, I am sick of hearing how criminals have all these rights while the victoms are left to fend for themselves. Right on here with some of these comments proves my statements about how the victom is forgotten and thrown to the wayside. Yes I happen to know this women and have met a couple of the girls and from what I have witnessed since this has all come about I would not wish on my worst ennemy. This family suffers every minute of every day with the fact of what happened. They did not ask for this but yet they have to live with what this so called man has done to them. I just hope that he gets a peice of what went around and gets to be the reciever for a while. Quite awhile instead of being released back into society.

    I unlike other ppl commenting on here have been through this before and have experienced first hand what its like being sexualy abused!! no one will ever understand the torment and dreams/feelings that you have for the rest of your life...its been 14 years since my horrible experience and It still feels like yesterday when it jus so happens to pop in my head. So incase you dont know...in case you just have no clue what it feels like...Take a second and think. Why would thins young child be so innocent as she is, say such a thing. Tell me. And There are others?! The young girls family...sisters at that??! An this mother that you keep talkin about...this mother is a strong, God fearing woman who has stood by her man like she vowed to on her wedding day. This woman spoke through her family. NOBODY knows what its like until its personally, physically and mentally happened to YOU! GOD BLESS each of those girls!!!

    Maybe Heather, and her sisters wouldn't even have to deal with this situation in their lives if it hadn't had happened to them, think about that. It's not their fault or their mothers that this happened to them. What do you want them to do, just get over it? No, they are psychologically affected for the rest of their lives. Everybody that is sticking up for Edward obviously isn't thinking about that. Yeah, truth is he DOES appear to be a regular ole guy doesn't he? But nobody was there when he would sneak into the girls' bedrooms at night and try to put his hand up their shirts or down their pants while they slept, and then smile at them at breakfast like nothing happened. And their mother is the best mother i've ever met. None of this is her fault, and each of the girls will tell you that.
