Former Senators assistant GM Randy Lee pleads guilty to harassment charge

Former Senators assistant general manager Randy Lee pleaded guilty Thursday to a second-degree harassment charge following an incident with a 19-year-old male hotel shuttle driver in Buffalo earlier this year, according to the Buffalo News

Lee, who resigned from the Senators in August, entered the plea in Buffalo City Court before his nonjury trial was set to begin. As a result, he was sentenced to time already served (one night in jail) and he was fined a $120 surcharge. 

The 57-year-old was charged with inappropriately touching and making lewd comments toward a 19-year-old driver while in Buffalo at the NHL’s pre-draft scouting combine in May. 

The Senators suspended Lee from the team in June and he later announced his resignation after serving 23 years with Ottawa.
