A former Geneva doctor has been sent to prison for sexually assaulting a woman he knew in 2012.
Kane County Circuit Judge John A. Barsanti has sentenced 60-year-old Mark G.P. Lewis to eight years of imprisonment in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
A Kane County jury on Sept. 26, 2019, found Lewis guilty of the offense of criminal sexual assault, a Class 1 felony.
Kane County Assistant State’s Attorneys Greg Sams and Julianne Gerding presented evidence during the trial that on Nov. 17, 2012, Lewis sexually assaulted the victim when she was unable to consent. The crime took place at Lewis’ home on Squire Lane in St. Charles. Lewis knew the victim.
Lewis faced a minimum sentence of four years in prison.
According to Illinois law, Lewis must serve at least 85 percent of the sentence. He receives credit for 228 days served in the Kane County jail.
A judge in March 2018 sentenced Lewis to eight years in prison for his conviction for the offenses of unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, a Class X felony, and unlawful possession of a firearm without a Firearm Owners Identification Card, a Class 3 felony.
Authorities in 2015 found 110 marijuana plants, more than 11,000 grams of processed marijuana, a handgun and ammunition at Lewis’ St. Charles residence. Lewis’ FOID card had been revoked.
