Ex-Goldman MD's lawyer says account of alleged assault full of inconsistencies

American courtroom

A woman’s claims that she was assaulted by a former Goldman Sachs Managing Director are filled with inconsistencies that raise reasonable doubt about his guilt, a lawyer said at the end of a trial.

Bloomberg News reports that Jason Lee is charged with assaulting the Irish student in the bathroom of his $33,000-a-month East Hampton rental during a party in August 2013.

He waived his right to a jury and faces as long as 25 years in prison if convicted of first-degree rape by Kahn.

The woman gave different versions of the encounter with Lee, telling police she was attacked as she entered the bathroom, while testifying that Lee barged into the bathroom after she had put her dress back on after swimming, defense attorney Andrew Lankler told New York State Supreme Court Justice Barbara Kahn Tuesday in front of a packed courtroom in Riverhead, New York.
