A 42-year-old Oklahoma man has been indicted in a Nebraska federal court, accused of taking a teenage girl from her suburban Omaha home to his Oklahoma home for sex.
Dennis Lewis is charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and transporting a minor for sex. He could serve life in prison if convicted.
An investigator said in a court affidavit that Lewis asked the 14-year-old Bellevue girl for sex via text messages, persuaded her to send him nude pictures of herself and sent her pictures of his genitals. Prosecutors say Lewis picked up the girl from her Bellevue home on April 10. Police in Tulsa found Lewis and the girl at his home.
Lewis was being held in a Tulsa jail on Wednesday and could not be reached for comment.
