Firefighter Accused Of Abducting, Raping Mentally Challenged Man
Caller ID Helps Lead To Arrest

POSTED: 7:38 am EST February 9, 2005

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. -- A Miami-Dade County firefighter is accused of impersonating a police officer, abducting a 20-year-old mentally challenged man and raping him.

Franco Lewis was released on $75,000 bond.

Franco Lewis has been released on bond after Royal Palm Beach police arrested him Monday. Police said their investigation showed that Lewis approached the 20-year-old mentally challenged man on Feb. 5, asked for directions and offered to give him a ride in exchange for his help.

Lewis drove the man to his Royal Palm Beach home instead, detectives said. When the alleged victim realized he was being taken away, he reportedly asked to be taken home. Police said Lewis told them man that they were going to his home first and that he was a police officer and if the man didn't do what he was told he would make trouble for him.

When Lewis arrived home, he sexually assaulted the man, who was eventually able to escape and find help at a neighbor's house, police said.

But things didn't end there, according to police. The alleged victim was treated at the hospital and allowed to go home. Once home, police said he received a phone call from a person who identified himself as a police officer. The officer reportedly asked the man if he was going to prosecute and warned him how much trouble he could make for him because he was a police officer.

The alleged victim told police he recognized the voice as his abductor. Caller ID also captured the telephone number of the caller and it was later determined to belong to a cell phone of one of Lewis' coworkers, police said.

The coworker told police that he and Lewis were on duty at the time of the call and that he had left his phone unattended.

Lewis' attorney said the charges are bogus. He is charged with kidnapping, sexual battery, witness tampering and impersonating a police officer.

"sex with a feeble minded person" (which may be applicable to several members of this board given there postings...not the least myself! :D )

I hate to break this news to you, STM, but every job has these events. Check out "Mitsubishi" Montero who promised not to cite women for speeding in return for a BJ :shock: ...a proud member of the 68th RTT of the MSP...not to mention Tpr. "Lickme" Leydet, from the, 69th RTT, first in his class, molesting young females (true, she was the "Troop Pump", but still not an excuse...just an explanation)! Or Tpr. "Fireman" Finnegan, of the 68th RTT, torching his own vehicle to get a new one! Or Doc Murphy, Sturgeon General,...say no more! :D

Screen, screen, screen: no matter...you can't catch them all! :D

This is just a sad story. I have a second job working with mentally and physically challenged folks and I couldn't imagine something like this happening to them. This guy needs to get some serious help, and the mentally challenged kid is now worse off than before, which he does not deserve. It's just sick that this kind of stuff goes on these days, but there is no way to tell the dirtbags from the good guys sometimes.
