Former Sulphur Springs police chief Donnie Lewis, 63, has been sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty in Collin County to ten counts of indecency with a child.
The child is a family member. The incidents happened more than a decade ago.
Lewis was originally indicted on sixteen counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual assault of a child and indecency. Some of the counts were reduced or dropped as a result of his plea deal.
Lewis will receive credit for the 307 days he spent in jail awaiting trial.
