Terrence J. Lee - Repeat Sex Offender - Accused of drugging, sexually battering teen

Daytona Beach police has arrested a registered sex offender on charges that he sexually battered a 15-year-old who they say may have been drugged.

Terrence J. Lee, 37, who lives on Hollywood Avenue in Daytona Beach, also faces a charge of violation of probation after his arrest today, Daytona Beach police Investigator Jimmie Flynt said.

The incident occurred in August.

The victim and a friend were invited to Lee's home to watch a movie, Flynt said. Lee gave the 15-year-old boy an alcoholic drink and the victim's friend told police he saw Lee put a white powdery substance in the drink that he thought was sugar, Flynt said.

The friend told police he went to the bathroom and when he returned the victim had passed out and Lee was rubbing the boy's leg near the groin area, Flynt said.

The friend woke the victim and the two started to leave, but Lee offered them a ride home. The friend was taken home first and the victim passed out in the car, Flynt said. When he awakened, Lee was performing a sex act on him, Flynt said.

Investigators believe there may be other victims, Flynt said.

Anyone with information can call Detective Elaine Golsen at 386-671-5205.
