Reverend Dr. Paul Lewis is believed to have carnal knowledge of a 15-year old girl while visiting the island on a crusade in Jamaica in June 2009.
Pastor Paul Lewis was seen on 10th September, 2010 in the Savannah-La-Mar Resident Magistrate's Court, before Resident Magistrate Lyle Armstrong, where a ruling was handed down that he will face trial in the Westmoreland Circuit Court on October 11, 2010.
According to the Gleaner newspaper:
"Paul Lewis feels that it is nothing short of a travesty of justice that the matter has been sent to the next sitting of the Circuit Court," attorney-at-law Keith Bishop said.
"All of us as defense counsel made no-case submissions. It's important to point out that an important element of carnal knowledge is penetration. There is no evidence of penetration and the judge still commits the matter to Circuit," Bishop told The Gleaner.
"We were denied statements from the forensic expert and we do not know to what extent the judge might have relied on the forensic evidence to determine whether or not this case should go forward.
"We believe that what has gone forward is an extremely weak case, and we are appalled and disappointed that the matter has been committed to trial," Bishop said.
The Reverend Dr. Paul Lewis was born in the island of Jamaica West Indies. Dr. Paul migrated to the United States at the age of twelve.
The Reverend Dr. Paul Lewis is currently pastor The Messengers For Christ World Healing Center located in Brooklyn, New York. Only once in a life- time does some-one come along with such a gifting yet humble and caring spirit to share on missions, orphanages, crisis care intervention and more to the brothers and sisters in the World.
