A Mercer County jury acquitted a Tennessee man who had been accused of raping three young girls.

Michael David Lewis, 41, of Nashville initially faced more than 600 counts. Prosecutors dropped hundreds of them.

Defense attorney Blair H. Hindman said the alleged victims' testimonies were “blatantly different” from what they told state police. Lewis took the stand in his own defense.

Lewis is a former resident of Mercer County. Hindman said Lewis returned to Tennessee to resume life there.
