Man accused of exposing himself to kids after offering them candy, R-rated movie
BATON ROUGE - Sheriff’s deputies say they arrested a Baton Rouge man after he was accused of luring a group of kids into his house with the promise of candy and an R-rated film before exposing himself to them.
49-year-old Herman Lewis was booked on charges of indecent behavior with juveniles and contributing to delinquency of a juvenile after he was arrested Saturday morning.
Deputies say Lewis allowed four children under the age of 14 into his home and let them choose whatever movie they wanted to watch. After they picked out an R-rated film, he proceeded to blow kisses and make other lewd gestures at the children. At several points during the incident, the man offered them Now-N-Later candies as he touched himself, according to the arrest report.
Upon his arrest, Lewis denied ever having exposed himself to the children, and said he did not blow kisses to any of them.
Lewis was booked into the EBR Parish Prison.
