CAROLINA BEACH - A Carolina Beach resident was recently sentenced to 25 years in prison. In September of 2019, officers with the Carolina Beach Police Department and Kure Beach Police Department executed a search warrant at 201 Fayetteville Ave. Unit 20, Carolina Beach, N.C. regarding an investigation into sexual assault offenses against a child. Detectives arrested David Chase Lewis a 31-year-old of 201 Fayetteville Ave. Unit 20 for crimes related to the sexual assault of a child between the years 2015 through 2019.  Lewis was transported to the Carolina Beach Police Department for processing and was placed on a 1 million dollar secured bond.  On September 19, 2019 Lewis was charged with additional counts related to this investigation and placed on an additional 1 million dollar bond and confined in the New Hanover County Jail.  
Lewis was charged with 1 count of felony Statutory Rape of a Child under 15 years old, 1 count of felony Incest Against a Child, 6 counts of felony Statutory Sex Offense with a Child under 15 years old and 4 counts of felony Indecent Liberties with a Minor.
New Hanover County Magistrates placed Lewis on a $2,000,000 secured, awaiting first appearance.
According to the District Attorney's Office, Lewis plead guilty in New Hanover County Superior Court on March 22nd, to multiple child sex abuse offenses, including statutory sex offense, statutory rape, incest, and taking indecent liberties with a child. An investigation by the Carolina Beach Police Department  determined that the defendant sexually abused a family member over a period of four years in Carolina Beach and other parts of New Hanover County.  The defendant will spend at least the next 25 years in prison, as the Hon. Frank Jones, Superior  Court Judge, sentenced Lewis to an active prison sentence of 300 – 420 months in the NC Division of  Adult Correction. Judge Jones also ordered the defendant to register as a sex offender upon his release,  and issued a permanent no contact order with the victim.
