Pimp Demands – Interlude
A Bay Point man convicted of torture, rape and human trafficking compared his own plight to that of Nelson Mandela’s, before a Contra Costa County judge sentenced him Friday to life plus at least 180 years.
Before he was sentenced, Deandre Lewis heard from some of his victims and their family members, but only briefly glanced toward them as they spoke. One woman, who said she had known Lewis since he was 16, recounted how he would regularly beat her and others to keep them under his control, and said she lived in fear for many years.
“I lived in terror of what you could do to me, my parents or my son,” said the woman, who this newspaper is not identifying. She later added, “The reality is, you are the weak one. You needed me more than I needed you.”
