WORCESTER — A Southbridge man who was once on the list of the state's most wanted violent fugitives was sentenced to 10 to 12 years in state prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to a litany of charges, including indecent assault and battery on a child, aggravated kidnapping and armed robbery. 

Authorities said Gregory J. Lewis, 30, embarked on a multistate crime rampage in 2014, after being charged with the rape of a 13-year-old girl in Southbridge, cutting off the court-ordered GPS device he was wearing, stealing his stepfather's motor vehicle and fleeing the jurisdiction.

While on the run, Mr. Lewis allegedly raped, kidnapped and robbed female escorts in Colorado and Oregon. He was also suspected of robbing another woman working for an escort service in Indiana and of abducting and robbing a female victim in North Carolina.

With charges still pending against him in at least four other states, Oregon, Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia, Mr. Lewis pleaded guilty Tuesday afternoon in Worcester Superior Court to four counts of indecent assault and battery on a child, indecent exposure, receiving stolen property, aggravated kidnapping, armed robbery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person 60 or older, assault and battery on a person 60 or older with injury, unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, larceny of a firearm, larceny of a motor vehicle, larceny from a person, larceny over $250 and witness intimidation.

Two of the indecent assault and battery on a child charges were reduced from child rape aggravated by age difference as part of a plea agreement in the case. The sexual assault charges, involving a 13-year-old girl, resulted from crimes committed between June 20 and Aug. 5, 2014, in Southbridge, according to court records.

After being placed on house arrest and removing his monitoring device on Sept. 15, 2014, Mr. Lewis returned to Southbridge 10 days later, assaulted his 67-year-old stepfather, Eric Jones, used handcuffs to bind him to a pole in his basement and made off with a handgun, money and more than 200 rounds of ammunition, according to Assistant District Attorney Courtney L. Sans.

The prosecutor said Mr. Jones was hit in the head with an expandable baton and required nine staples to close the wound.

Mr. Lewis was captured in upstate New York on Oct. 28, 2014, and was returned to Massachusetts to face the charges lodged against him here.

State police said Mr. Lewis told several people while on the lam that he intended to return to Southbridge and kill the young girl he was accused of raping.

In addition to the state prison sentence imposed by Judge Janet Kenton-Walker, Mr. Lewis was placed on probation for two years, to begin upon completion of his prison term. As a condition of probation, he was ordered to have no contact with the sexual assault victim. Mr. Lewis was also given credit for 1,293 days he spent in custody awaiting the resolution of his case.

Ms. Sans said Mr. Lewis' relationship with the 13-year-old began after she and friends contacted him by telephone while randomly making crank calls. She said Mr. Lewis later contacted the girl and arranged meetings with her.

The prosecutor had recommended that Mr. Lewis be sentenced to 25 to 30 years' imprisonment. The sentence imposed by Judge Kenton-Walker was recommended by Mr. Lewis' lawyer, Michael G. Cashman.

In an impact statement read in court, the sexual assault victim, now 17, spoke of the emotional toll Mr. Lewis' crimes had taken on her.

"At first, I blamed myself. I felt like I was responsible for what happened. Today, I know it was not my fault," she said.

"And to my attacker," she said, "I'd like you to know I'm stronger now than I have ever been. I'm much stronger than the 13-year-old girl you abused."

"He stole her innocence. He robbed her of so much," the victim's mother said in her impact statement, after describing Mr. Lewis as being "full of pure evil and arrogance." She recalled how she and her family had to stay in hotels or friend's homes while Mr. Lewis was on the run because of the threats he had made.

"We lived in constant fear. It was reported that he was intending to come back to kill my daughter," she said.

In urging the judge to impose the sentence he was requesting, Mr. Cashman said that Mr. Lewis had no prior criminal record as an adult and had lived a "productive and fairly normal life" before the fall of 2014. After being charged with child rape, he became "distraught and sort of lost" and continued to make matters worse by his own actions, according to the defense lawyer, who noted that Mr. Lewis was now accepting responsibility for his criminal conduct.

Ms. Sans told the court that Mr. Jones was not in favor of the 25- to 30-year sentence she was proposing on the aggravated kidnapping charge and felt a sentence of about 10  years was more appropriate.

Judge Kenton-Walker addressed the sexual assault victim at the conclusion of the hearing.

"You are a very brave, brave person with a whole life ahead of you," the judge said.
