Mr Lewis was a barrister assigned to Alan Bradley's defence in his trial for fraud and attempted murder of Rita Fairclough at Weatherfield Crown Court in October 1989. On the morning of the trial, Mr Lewis told Det. Sgt. Crichton that they could save themselves time by going for the lesser charge of assault, to which Alan was prepared to plead guilty. Crichton dismissed the idea at first, but when he had a word with Rita and found her to be overzealous in her determination to send Alan down, he warned the defence barrister Mr Myers that the jury would probably not like Rita and advised him to agree to the defence team's terms.

Alan pleaded guilty to fraud and assault and was sentenced to two years in prison, with one suspended, but walked free from the court that day having served seven months and been granted remission for good behaviour.
