Police: Man was peeping into kids' room
Suspect is sex offender convicted in a 2005 case
Deontray Antwone Lewis

    A convicted sex offender caught repeating the crime was charged Monday with being a Peeping Tom, police say.
    Deontray Antwone Lewis, 32, of Miller Street Extension, was caught by a neighbor “peeping into her children’s bedroom” at their Lundy’s Mobile Home Park home around 9:15 p.m., Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said.
    The children are ages 9 and 5.
    Lewis was arrested shortly after the neighbor called deputies.
    The current Peeping Tom charge isn’t the first time Lewis has faced the accusation. He is required to register as a convicted sex offender after a 2005 conviction of Peeping Tom, Anderson said.
    “He has also been convicted of aggravated assault in Jenkins County, and assaults on jail staff in Bulloch County,” the sheriff said.
    Lewis’ most recent conviction was in March, but he was released from incarceration after pleading “guilty but mentally insane” after an assault on a female Bulloch County jailer, Anderson said.
    “Lewis received a probated sentence with credit for the time he had already served in jail on other charges,” the sheriff said.
    Now, Lewis is back in jail, held without bond, on the felony Peeping Tom charges and a probation violation, he said.
