Accused kidnapper set to change his plea
Was Tim Allan Lewis of Eagle Point ever sentenced on charges he kidnapped a woman and forced her into sex acts? If so, what are those details? Thanks for the great reporting.

Lewis, 65, remains lodged in the Jackson County Jail on a total of $1,066,000 bail as he faces nearly a dozen felony charges that include kidnapping, sodomy and sexual abuse involving a single woman victim, jail records show.
Court records show he has not yet been tried or sentenced in the case alleging he confined a woman where she was not likely to be found on June 22, 2016, sodomized her and subjected her to multiple incidents of unwanted sexual contact with his hands and with a sex toy.
A trial previously set for last week has been postponed, but not yet rescheduled, Jackson County Circuit Court records show. Lewis intends to change his plea in the case at a hearing scheduled for May 1.
In news reports from July 2016, prosecutors stated that they had made contact with additional alleged victims in the case. Court records, however, show no additional victims or charges added in that case.
Deputy district attorneys did file added charges of delivering and possessing heroin against Lewis in October 2016.
A plea-change hearing is set for May 1 in that case, along with Lewis’ other open cases, which date back to 2014 on charges that include felony possessing methamphetamine, misdemeanor driving under the influence of intoxicants, misdemeanor driving while suspended and misdemeanor harassment.
