6 years in prison for man who punched pregnant girlfriend in stomach

Timothy Lewis has lengthy criminal history

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Pittsfield man with an extensive criminal history has been sentenced to up to six years in prison for assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and cocaine possession.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Timothy Lewis pleaded guilty to six charges Monday in Superior Court.

Prosecutors say the 39-year-old Lewis punched the mother of his unborn child in the stomach and pushed her to the ground on May 4, 2015.

Responding officers were told by the woman that Lewis had a large quantity of drugs in his car, which was found in a hidden compartment.

Lewis previously has been convicted on several occasions in Massachusetts on drug and larceny charges, and he has a record of drug and larceny charges, and at least one prior conviction, in New York.
