Report - hiding Goldman banker charged after naked pool party


A Goldman Sachs banker accused of s.xual assaulting a 20-year-old woman during a naked pool party in the Hamptons was reportedly found by police cowering in his Range Rover.

The Daily Mail reports that Jason Lee, who is managing director of the firm's equity capital markets group but has been placed on leave since his arrest, was charged on Wednesday with first-degree rape.

On Sunday, it emerged Lee's own friend, Rene Duncan, called the police, believing one of the alleged victim's friends had stolen a car from Lee's rental home.

But when police arrived, the young woman's brother drew a female officer aside and led her into the house where his sobbing sister reported she had been raped, according to The East Hampton Star.

A source told the newspaper Lee then went to the driveway of the $33,000-a-month summer home he was renting, got into his late model Range Rover, which was dark with tinted windows, and hid.

But officers soon found him cowering inside, the source said.

Lee was released after posting bail of $20,000 and is due back in court on September 19. He his protested his innocence.
