Sean Justin Lee, a former Boy Scouts of America camp counselor, was popped on New Year's Day for the alleged sexual assault of an unconscious 16-year-old boy in July 2015. The 23-year-old Fullerton resident was working as a counselor at a Cedar Glen camp when he sodomized and orally copulated the minor, allege detectives with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department's Specialized Investigations Division-Crimes Against Children Detail. Their investigation of Lee began after the boy told his parents what allegedly happened in October 2015. Following a lengthy probe that included interviews with other people who attended or worked at the camp, a warrant for Lee's arrest was obtained on Dec. 30 and he arrested on Jan. 1, deputies say. After posting $100,000 bail, Lee was released from jail. But the investigation continues, and anyone with more information is asked to call Detective MJ Higgins or Sgt. Dana Foster with the Crimes Against Children Detail at 909.387.3615.
