Dr. Victor Lee, of Lee Orthodontics in Abilene, TX, was charged with a second-degree felony account of sexual assault, booked into county jail, and released on April 16 after posting a $25,000 bond.

Since 2017, Lee has been booked at the county jail at least four times on various charges, according to the story. In 2022, a jury in Texas found him not guilty of possession of a controlled substance by fraud stemming from a case in which he reportedly prescribed two medications for his parents and attempted to pick them up.

However, Sellers Law Firm in Fort Worth, TX, which represents Lee and his practice, posted a statement on April 16 on Lee Orthodontics' Facebook page calling the new charge "fake." Furthermore, the accusation and the woman's credibility had been litigated, and a jury acquitted Lee of this offense in less than a half hour, according to the statement.

"We are confident the same will happen here -- if it gets there. Despite continued abuses of power by the Taylor County District Attorney's Office and disgruntled ex-girlfriend, Lee Orthodontics continues to provide the quality care it has for the past 17 years serving the Big Country," according to the statement.

The statement has more than 100 likes and loves, as well as a few comments of support.

"No, he did not do what he's accused of. It's extremely heartbreaking to know that just because a disgruntled person can make false allegations, (especially with no proof) this is the outcome. I hope that people can be better than this lady making false allegations to humiliate someone," Juliane Gonzales wrote in response to the statement.

Another supporter, Melissa Jones, posted, "What a shame, this kind if stuff can ruin a person, praying for Dr Lee, they should turn around and sue for falsely accusing him, sending love and prayers for Dr Lee."
