Robbinsville police sergeant resigns, enters intervention program

The Robbinsville police sergeant diagnosed with a neurological condition after an incident last fall at an independent living facility for the physically disabled has resigned and entered a pretrial intervention program.
Mark Lee, 45, plead guilty to five counts Thursday, including endangering the welfare of a child, official misconduct and three counts of aggravated assault for the Sept. 17 incident at Project Freedom in Robbinsville, according to an email from prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Casey DeBlasio. He also forfeited his employment in Robbinsville and any future government employment.
His participation in the PTI program requires him to continue medical and psychiatric treatment and having no contact with any victims in the case. He will be under supervision for a three-year period.
The former sergeant had his bail reduced last October after a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation showed he was diagnosed with a neurological disorder which involves calcium deposits on the brain.
Mercer County Judge Pedro Jimenez reduced his bail from $250,000 to $10,000 after the court-ordered evaluation at Anna Klein Forensic Center.
Lee was prohibited from returning to Robbinsville Township and Project Freedom, the development where he was arrested.
