MAN RETURNED FROM PRISON TO FACE CHILD MOLESTATION CHARGES

(Richmond, IN)--Deputies traveled to northern Indiana Wednesday to take Richmond’s 45-year-old Phillip Lee out of prison to bring him back to Wayne County to face child molestation charges.  Lee is in prison after being classified as a habitual offender.  Four years ago, Lee was charged with molesting a child under the age of 14.  Around that time, he had barricaded himself inside a garage on Pearl Street.  That incident brought about a SWAT standoff.
