McDavid Postmaster Pleads Not Guilty

April 4, 2011

The McDavid postmaster arrested last month on attempted sexual battery and false imprisonment charges has pleaded not guilty.

James Bruce Lee, 51, entered the plea through his attorney in Escambia County Circuit court. His case has been set for a jury trial in early June as he remains free from jail on $6,000 bond.

The charges stemmed from a January 15 incident that allegedly took place inside the McDavid Post Office. A female mail carrier alleged that Lee attempted to sexually assault her inside the Main Street building.

Lee provided a sworn written statement and interview to postal investigators, however his statements were not released by the United States Postal Inspection Service.

Lee, who has served as McDavid postmaster since January, 2005, remains on administrative leave as he awaits trial.

    If that woman’s story is not true, SHE needs to go to jail for causing this man reputation and mental anguish, among many other things, I am sure. I have never picked up on anything untoward in this man. Quite the contrary. He has always been courteous, helpful and professional with me. But, if he is guilty, he should go to jail. May true justice be served here.
