Judge issues restraining order in sheriff smear campaign

A judge ruled in favor of Sheriff Tyrone Lewis’ request for a restraining order against a group of people for cyberstalking, bullying, defamation, and several other allegations.

Lewis’ attorney Dennis Sweet pointed out that smear campaigns such as the one he says was leveled against his client are much easier in the digital age, and cost Lewis irreparable harm to his campaign.

According to court documents, Lewis contends that Tony Davis, Sheila Lewis, Tangue Davis, Kristie Nichols and John Does 1-10 “commit unlawful acts,” namely defamation, malicious prosecution, filing false police reports, extortion, cyberstalking/bullying, and other charges.
