Delaware County native William Lewis of Ridley Park failed to properly register under Megan’s Law after pleading guilty to indecent assault involving a 13-year-old child, Your Content has learned.
Police arrested the 23-year-old sexual predator on Oct. 28, 2019 for several sex crimes, including two counts each of indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age, indecent exposure, and corruption of minors, according to court documents.
Due to the caliber of Lewis’ sex crime, he was mandated to register as a Tier III Sex Offender under Megan’s Law and appear in-person at a Pennsylvania State Police Verification Site four times a year. Following his release, Lewis was to register on the Megan’s Law Registry and be photographed.
“This Valentine’s Day think about your loved ones and hold them sacred to you,” a concerned parent wrote on Facebook. “If you see this person many know as Billy Tarzan Lewis or William Lewis I ask that you report him for he has failed to register with Megan’s Law.”
Pennsylvania State Police’s Megan’s Law Unit indicates sex offenders must appear in-person at an approved registration or verification site immediately upon release to complete a verification form and to be photographed.
“He is a horrible person and needs to now live up to the consequences of what he has done and his failure to comply with the plea bargain that he took after serving only four months for violating the trust and love and innocence of someone who was close to him,” the Delaware County native and mother continued. “So think about the people we choose to have around our kids some of our closest friends can be the closest predators just waiting for a chance to hurt our children.”
