Mexico Man Charged With Child Sex Crimes For a Second Time

A Mexico Man is being charged with child sex crimes for a second time.

According to reports from ABC 17 the probable cause statement says the Audrain County Sheriff’s Department received a call about a possible sexual assault in or around Audrain County in October of 2019.

A Missouri Children’s Division Callaway County employee told the deputy sheriff about a child that was told to touch and perform acts on Lewis Parrish’s penis.

During an interview with an employee from the Rainbow House, the victim said that Parrish grabbed the victim’s privates while wrestling.

After wrestling, Parrish is accused of making the victim perform sexual acts on his penis in his truck in the summer of 2019 according to court records.

During the summer of 2020 the victim says Parrish made them perform sexual acts in his garage.

A second victim reportedly told the Missouri Children’s Division Callaway County employee that Parrish showed them a porn video in Mexico.

Parrish is charged in Audrain County with 4 counts of child molestation, 2 counts of incest and furnishing pornographic material to a minor.

He has a court date in Callaway County next Friday morning and does not have a bond set in Audrain County.

According to the probable cause statement, Parrish is a convicted sex offender and pled guilty to 1st degree child molestation in 2008 in Henry County where he served 8 years.
