Pensacola Doctor arrested for attempting to have sex with a minor



A Pensacola Doctor is behind bars this morning, accused of trying to meet a minor for sex.
       
On Thursday, Escambia County Deputies arrested 43 year old Brian Lee, the operator of the Perdido Bay Family Care clinic here in Pensacola. They accused him of using a computer to set up a sexual encounter with a minor.

Lee agreed to meet who he thought was a fourteen year old boy for sex.
    His target turned out to be an Escambia County investigator.
   
When he arrived at their agreed upon location, he was arrested by members of the internet crimes against children task force.
    Lee's clinic was located near a neighborhood full of children.

This man, who doesn't want to be identified, but says he was a patient says Lee made him uncomfortable.
    "This happened, you know, right here, you know? Right down the street from me. It's kind of weird, you know. It just feels really odd."
          "He almost fit the picture, you know? He just had that feel about him, that you know, maybe he could be. No one wants to reall think that, you know? But it's always a possibility."
 
Lee will remain in custody until his first court appearance on January 24th.

Investigators say Doctor Brian Lee's chats were especially concerning, because he made reference to young patients.
    Anyone who has concerns is asked to contact the Escambia Sheriff's Office.
