This is a press release from the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office:
District Attorney Maggie Fleming announced that Bronson Moon Lewis was found guilty by jury of felony domestic violence today. Mr. Lewis who is 33 years old assaulted the mother of his children on November 7, 2011.
Mr. Lewis came to the victim’s home in Ferndale in the early morning hours of November 7, 2011. The victim discovered that Mr. Lewis was attempting to move back into the home and an argument ensued. As the victim was trying to get Mr. Lewis’s possessions out of her vehicle, he started pulling at her, eventually slamming her face into the side view mirror causing a cut to her nose. The victim used a bat to defend herself, and eventually Mr. Lewis left her home.
The case was investigated by the Ferndale Police Department. Sentencing will occur on April 30, 2015. He is facing a maximum of 4 years in prison. The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Jackie Pizzo.
This case was heard in Department 2 in front of Judge Miles. This was a retrial after a jury hung 11-1 for guilt in 2013.
