White Supremacist Charged With Sexually Abusing Teenage Girl
A white supremacist with ties to the KKK is now facing serious jail time on charges including drug dealing and the sexual assault of a teenage girl. Arkansas native Floyd Melton Lewis was arrested last weekend after an anonymous source told police he was growing marijuana and took naked pictures of a 13-year-old girl. But when police arrived, they found far more than pot in his home.
Boone County Sheriff Mike Moore said they found a variety of white supremacist material, including KKK pictures, inside Lewis’ house. They also found a basement area where it appeared that Lewis delivered racist sermons to a congregation. “Anytime you pull up to a residence and you see a place where a cross has been burned, it’s enough to raise an alarm,” said Moore. “It appeared there was a place in the basement that he might have spoken at a pulpit and maybe one pew.” Lewis is currently being held on $50,000 bond for the charges of second degree sexual assault, making marijuana and possession of drugs and firearms.
Last month, a KKK leader in Southern Alabama pleaded guilty to a 2009 cross burning in a predominantly African-American neighborhood. Dinkle also lied to both the state and federal investigators about not knowing his accomplice in the cross burning when it was actually his superior in the organization. His mother, Pamela Morris, was also charged with committing perjury before a grand jury that investigated the case. Dinkle faces 45 years in jail and $750,000 in fines; Morris faces up to five years in jail and $500,000 in fines.
