Goldman MD scheduled to be arraigned on assault charge

Gavel

A Goldman Sachs Managing Director is scheduled to be arraigned on charges of raping a woman at his rental home in East Hampton, New York, the wealthy beach community on the east end of Long Island.

Bloomberg News reports that Jason Lee, 37, is set to appear before state Supreme Court Justice Barbara Kahn today in Riverhead, New York, according to online court records.

Lee was arrested and charged with first-degree rape in August after police went to his Clover Leaf Lane home and learned that a woman had been sexually assaulted inside the residence, where several people had gathered, according to a police statement.

A grand jury indicted Lee last month on one count of first-degree rape, which carries a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison, and misdemeanor counts of assault and sexual misconduct, according to court records. He was freed on $20,000 cash bail.

Lee’s employer wasn’t identified in the police statement. Lee, who lives in New York, is head of convertibles at Goldman Sachs and has been placed on leave, according to a person familiar with the matter who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about a private personnel matter and asked not to be named.

Lee has adamantly denied the allegations.
