molesting a child Lewis indictment included nine counts of indecency with a child The case was heard this week at the Comal County Courthouse Testimony began on Monday and was completed by Wednesday Jury deliberations on the guiltinno cence phase of the trial lasted one hour while deliberations on the punishment phase lasted only 25 minutes Lewis was originally tried before a judge in October

sentence the jury could for the charges During the first trial Lewis also admitted to having a prior and another previous indictment for t indecency with a child in the Dallas area Dunne that

operated upon Lithotripsy allows the stone to pass more safely less painfully and less traumatically It also is less disruptive of a patients activities than open Our hospital is excited that we can now offer the same kind of advanced kidney stone therapy and support staff that Aegis currently provides to major hospitals in metropolitan areas like said Brierty Patients can now be treated here at home making it less expensive and more convenient for them and their families Since its beginning in 1953 McKenna Memorial Hospital Us physicians nurses and support staff have been committed to
