LUDINGTON — A 31-year-old Scottville man was sentenced to 4 to 15 years in prison today for raping a minor under the age of 13. Frederick Lewis appeared in 51st Circuit Court this afternoon. In October he pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct second degree for multiple incidences that took place between 2001 and 2004.

Lewis was originally charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct first degree, which would have meant mandatory life sentences.

Lewis was arrested on Feb. 12, 2013, following an investigation by the Michigan State Police. He was charged with sexually abusing a minor, who is related to him, under the age of 13. The incidences allegedly took place when the alleged victim was between the ages of 7 and 11, she is now 18. The woman, who now lives in Baldwin, is a relative of Lewis’ and was living in the same Custer Township house during the alleged incidences.
