RIVERHEAD, N.Y., Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A New York investment banker was arraigned on Long Island Friday on rape and related charges, Suffolk County, N.Y., court documents said.

Jason Lee, 37, of New York, was arraigned on first-degree rape, sexual misconduct and third-degree assault charges, the newspaper Newsday reported.

Outside the courtroom, District Attorney Thomas Spota said Lee met the alleged victim, an Irish national, in a Wainscot, N.Y., bar in August, adding she and friends came to Lee's rental house in the nearby Long Island town of East Hampton, where she was allegedly raped.

Lee's attorney, Edward Burke Jr., said his client and the alleged victim engaged in consensual sex.
