A hot shot Goldman Sachs exec accused of raping a party goer at his $33,000-a-month East Hampton rental pleaded not guilty Friday morning in Suffolk County Criminal Court.
Jason Lee, a 37-year-old managing director at the investment bank, was accompanied by his wife in court.
Lee is accused of raping a young woman during his 37th birthday party on Aug. 20, which apparently included an all-naked pool party.
According to the Suffolk County DA, the victim, her brother and other friends were invited by Lee to the summer rental home after meeting him at a club on Wainscott Stone Road, where he bought drinks for them throughout the evening.
At 4 a.m. they moved the party to Lee’s place. The victim later told police Lee, who was naked at the time, followed her into a bathroom — slamming the door open by force and causing her to follow to the floor. He then allegedly pinned her to the floor.
She finally stopped the rape by kneeing Lee in the groin, she told cops.
