LUMPKIN COUNTY, Ga. – Christopher DeWayne Lee, 34 of Dahlonega, has been charged with third degree cruelty to children and battery –family violence following a domestic incident on Ben Higgins Road Saturday (May 28).
According to an incident report by the Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office, the victim, Tesha May Robertson, 28, returned home from work to find Lee intoxicated. Robertson stated that Lee began calling her names and when she asked him to stop, he slapped her on the ear, pushed her onto the bed and bit her. The report states there were visible signs of both.
The cruelty to children charge stems from the fact that a juvenile witnessed the incident.
