Trial of Ex-Slaton Police Officer Postponed
The trial of a former Slaton police officer charged with possessing child pornography has been postponed. Richard Lewis’s trial was supposed to be set for today. He has a total of six charges of child pornography against him.
Massive amounts of pornographic material were removed from Lewis’s home on May 11th. Federal authorities seized three computers, 80 CDs and 10 VHS tapes from the home. He surrendered to authorities and resigned from his position May 23rd after the Department of Homeland Security began an investigation.
