A man who had been arrested on multiple charges in October 2020 stemming from a domestic incident is scheduled for a virtual preliminary hearing Tuesday.
According to the Spalding County Magistrate Court calendar, Jamon Martel Lee, 27, of Union City, faces the following felony charges — false imprisonment-confine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, terroristic threats, aggravated assault, first degree child cruelty, Violation of Georgia Controlled Substances Act-intent to distribute marijuana, VGCSA-intent to distribute, and possession of firearm/knife during the commission of a felony. He also faces the following misdemeanor charges — battery-family violence and third degree child cruelty. W. Allen Adams is listed as Lee’s defense attorney. According to a Spalding County Sheriff’s Office incident report, deputies were called to a church on North Expressway in reference to terroristic threats.
When deputies first got to the church, the female victim did not talk to authorities. She eventually did say that she was held at gunpoint, slapped in the face, punched in the arm, threatened to be killed, and verbally abused by Lee, her boyfriend. The victim also told the SCSO that Lee threatened to kill their daughter. The victim told the SCSO she was “extremely afraid” because he told her he had gotten away with killing someone before and would do it again.
When asked by the SCSO, Lee was “not forthcoming and evaded all questions,” according to the incident report.
