Ex-Goldman MD's attorney challenges timing of injuries in assault case

Alarm Clock Bed

A lawyer for former Goldman Sachs Managing Director Jason Lee challenged the timing of injuries sustained by a woman who prosecutors say he assaulted at his rented Hamptons beach house.

Bloomberg News reports that bruises on the woman’s hip, back and finger, as seen in photos taken both before and after the August 2013 encounter, appear to be older than 7 to 10 hours, said Lone Thanning, a former medical examiner for Rockland County, New York.

Defense attorney Andrew Lankler called Thanning to the stand to contradict testimony by Tara Accavallo. Accavallo, a nurse who examined the woman about six hours after the alleged attack, said Thursday the injuries were consistent with rape.

On cross examination, Assistant District Attorney Kim Shalvey questioned Thanning on how she could assess the woman’s injuries by looking at photos. Thanning responded she doesn’t regularly examine live patients, and that pictures can be used to form an opinion.
