Man gets prison for traveling to Aurora for sex with children – Chicago Tribune

A Pennsylvania man faces a mandatory prison sentence after being convicted of traveling to Aurora and paying to have a sexual encounter with children.

A Kane County jury Wednesday convicted 38-year-old Shane R. Lewis of involuntary sexual servitude of a minor, a Class X felony, traveling to meet a minor, a Class 3 felony, and grooming, a Class 4 felony, according to a press release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.

The jurors deliberated for about two hours before reaching the verdict.

Kane County prosecutors presented evidence that on Jan. 8, 2015, Lewis, who was in the Chicago area for business purposes, traveled from DuPage County to an Aurora hotel with the intent to pay to have sex with what he believed would be a 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl, according to the release.
