A Judge in Kane County, Ill. declined to reinstate the bond of Mark G. Lewis, a former Geneva, Ill. doctor who was arrested on charges of growing and possessing 26 pounds of marijuana while free on bond from a sexual assault charge from 2012.
Lewis is charges with felony possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, production of cannabis plants and possession of a firearm without a Firearm Owner’s Identification card.
Previously, Lewis was charged with sexual assault in 2014 for an incident where he assaulted a woman in his home in 2012. Lewis posted the $250,000 bail for the sexual assault case, but then authorities seized more than $600,000 worth of marijuana and a handgun after searching his home. The sexual assault charge carries up to 30 years in prison, while the drug charges could bring 12 to 60 years in prison.
In a lawsuit settled out of court, the victim of the assault argued she woke up in a bed at Lewis’ home with her pants off with Lewis lying next to her with his shirt off. Previously, state regulators have suspended Lewis’ medical license due to inappropriate patient relationships and improperly prescribing prescription drugs.
