A Robbinsville police officer who attacked a woman in a wheelchair and her child in their home last month has a neurological disorder characterized by calcium deposits on his brain, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said yesterday.
Sgt. Mark Lee, 44, who has been undergoing a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation since he was arrested the night of the assaults, saw a large reduction in bail as prosecutors announced his medical condition.
Superior Court Judge Pedro Jimenez reduced Lee’s bail amount from $250,000 to $10,000. Prosecutors did not oppose the reduction.
