Records Show Former Trooper Used Social Media In Harrassment

Associated Press

Records show an Ohio Highway Patrol trooper accused of forcing female motorists into sexual acts in exchange for dropping traffic charges used Craigslist to offer "traffic stop sex."   

The records also show that trooper Bryan Lee of Lancaster sent multiple Facebook messages to a female passenger he photographed without her shirt on, including one that let her know he'd been keeping an eye on her. The details are included in hundreds of pages of records the Patrol released Monday in response to media requests.   The records include the dashboard camera recording that launched the patrol's investigation in October 2013. The 31-year-old can be heard in the video flirting with a female driver and the passenger he later photographed. Lee subsequently resigned ahead of being fired and was prosecuted.  He is serving five years in prison.
