CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Federal agents are charging a Kings Mountain man who shot a CMPD police officer while attempting to serve a warrant on Tuesday in South Carolina on federal charges that could land him in jail for 20 years if found guilty.
But the federal charge is not for Tuesday's shooting but another robbery attempt in Charlotte last month.
James William Lewis, Jr., 31, of Kings Mountain, faces federal charges in connection with the Dec. 12, 2013 armed robbery of a Charlotte area Jack in the Box restaurant, according to the news release U.S. District Attorney's Office for the Western District of North Carolina.
A federal criminal complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court charges Lewis with one count of Hobbs Act robbery.
According to the criminal complaint, on Dec. 12, 2013, Lewis entered the restaurant and asked the manager for money while brandishing a weapon.
The manager handed Lewis cash and Lewis fled the scene.
Lewis is currently in federal custody. He spoke briefly in court Friday.
He said yes when asked if he understood the charge against him and the possible penalties. He said he won't be able to afford a lawyer. He also told the judge he has been homeless for two years.
The statutory maximum sentence for Hobbs Act robbery is 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine, according to the release.
