A 22-year-old Germantown man received two life sentences, with all but 50 years suspended, on Wednesday in Frederick County Circuit Court.
According to a statement released by the Frederick County State Attorney’s Office, Perry Eugene Lee Jr., forced his way into a home in Frederick city on Dec. 9, looking for a person who had assaulted him the night before. That individual was not in the home, according to the release; instead, he found a woman and her two young children.
Lee was armed with .357 Magnum, which he pointed at one of the woman’s children and then used to assault her sexually.
He was arrested later that day by Frederick police responding to a call about a group of men arguing near All Saints and South Market streets, where one man was said to have a gun, court records said. Police found the gun, which was fully loaded, according to the statement.
Lee eventually pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sex offenses, and one count of first-degree assault.
Lee’s lawyer, Stephen Musselman, could not immediately be reached Wednesday night.
