TRENTON, Ohio -- Police on Monday arrested a Butler County man accused of more than a dozen sex crimes dating back to 1997. 

"You don’t like investigating these types of cases," Trenton Police Detective Sean Gill said. "They kind of turn your stomach."

Gill began investigating 47-year-old Terry Lewis, who now faces 13 felony charges involving sex with children, in October 2015. 

At the time, he said, Children's Hospital had notified him of a patient who had been been sexually assaulted. Following that tip led to an encounter with a second young victim, according to Gill.

The trail Gill followed produced numerous other assaults connected to Lewis, he said. Some of the crimes were 30 years old.

The Trenton County Police Department requested that any person with more information about Lewis contact them at 513-988-6341.
