Yet another internet sex sting

Lewis070912wide

U.S. Navy ensign and fourth-year medical student Troy Lewis sat with his attorney as Assistant U.S. Attorney Julieanne Himelstein summed up the government’s case for the jury.  Lewis had used the internet to arrange a sexual encounter with a ten-year old, but his contact turned out to be an undercover DC police detective.

The local NBC4 has the story here (usually they do a better job shooting the sketches, and where’s my credit?!?).

About

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
