A former Goldman Sachs investment banker has been acquitted following a trial in which he was accused of raping a 20-year-old Irish tourist in the Hamptons two years ago.

Suffolk County Judge Barbara Kahn found Jason Lee not guilty Wednesday of first-degree rape, sexual misconduct and assault.

East Hampton Town Police had arrested the 38-year-old man after the woman accused him of sexually assaulting her at a rented home in August 2013.

Lee’s attorney reportedly argued that the sex was consensual and prosecutors argued that there was proof beyond a reasonable doubt, despite the judge’s verdict.
