(EAST HAMPTON STAR) — Jason Lee, 37, of New York City, a financial services manager for Goldman Sachs since 1998, was arrested Tuesday by East Hampton Town police on a charge of first-degree rape.
Brought into court in handcuffs later that day, he stood before Town Justice Catherine Cahill as Dan Cronin, a Suffolk County assistant district attorney, asked that bail be set at $25,000. Mr. Lee’s wife was in the courtroom, along with many members of his family.
“He adamantly denies these allegations,” Edward Burke Jr., his attorney, told Justice Cahill. Mr. Burke did not identify the defendant’s employer, saying only that he worked “at 200 West Street” in Manhattan. That address is better known as the Goldman Sachs Tower.
