The Goldman Sachs banker accused of raping a young woman at the house he rents in East Hampton is out on bail. The banker, Jason Lee, 37, paid his bail with $20,000 in cash, which was handed over to the court clerk in an envelope and "diligently" counted out. Lee, a managing director of the equity capital markets group, was arrested Thursday morning after police were called to the house for a seemingly unrelated reason.
Lee, a Tribeca resident, was partying with friends at an East Hampton nightclub Wednesday night and brought the party back to the four room manse he rented with his wife for July and August, a source tells the Post, adding that soon "clothes came off" for a pool party. Around 6:30 a.m., one of the revelers called police to report that one of the other guests had stolen his car. But that turned out to be false, and while investigating the claim, police learned that an unidentified 20-year-old woman had allegedly been raped.
It is unclear how Lee knew the woman he allegedly raped. His lawyer, Brian Desesa, says his client "vehemently denies these allegations and we look forward to clearing his name."
