Escambia Doctor Sentenced As Sex Offender, Can Keep Medical Practice : NorthEscambia.com
An Escambia County doctor, Brian Mitchell Lee, was designated as a sex offender and sentenced to two years of community control and 13 years probation. The 43-year old was convicted of traveling to meet a minor to engage in sexual contact, unlawful use of a two-way communication device to facilitate the commission of a felony and using a computer to solicit the sexual conduct of a child …
Lee, of Perdido Bay Family Care, will be allowed to continue his medical practice, but won’t be allowed to treat any juvenile patients without another medical professional’s presence. [emphasis added] He will also be required to seek treatment as a sex offender.
Because Florida county clerks don’t use a unified system to make public records available to the public (’cause where’s the fun in paying just two or three software developers and then just one maintenance contractor), it’s difficult to figure out how many times an offender has offended.
My guess – per this Escambia County Clerk of Court page – is that Dr. Lee offended at least one other time, and had previously been before Judge Terrell.
If Escambia judges are turning legitimate busts into catch-and-release nothingness (like Brevard’s John Dean Moxley so frequently did), featuring the police on the unreal reality show, “Cops“, is only a temporary morale booster … which sheriff Morgan likely already knows.
“Cops” filmed in Brevard County, too. Often. As old as the show is, the producers, directors and crew never learned to recognize a truly Bad Boy when they see one.
