Fake doctor abuse toddlers brought to him for treatment

Fake doctor abuse toddlers brought to him for treatment

Lee Smith III, 29, was arrested in Boise, Idaho, and

charged with sexual assault of a child and indecency

with a child in attacks on Aug. 1, 2017. The other

victim, authorities said, was a 15 year old girl.

Boise police encountered Smith when someone

reported “a suspicious vehicle with a flat tire,” Houston

Police Detective David Yoon said at the news

conference. The responding Boise officer ran Smith’s

license plate and driver’s license, then learned that he

was wanted in Texas. He was taken into custody

without incident.


According to authorities, Lee used a disguise and

pretended to be a doctor - to get close to the children

without suspicion. Then, he allegedly molested them,

and told the children that he was "examining" them.

Yoon said it was in June that he was assigned the

case, after the parents of a 6-year-old and a 15-year-

old reported that their children were sexually abused by

Smith. The parents of the victims told police that

Smith fled when they confronted him. Police tracked

him down, asked him to come in and give a statement

— and he disappeared again.


Smith volunteered at schools and other places where

he had access to children.

“He was very active and very clever at how he got

around children,” Yoon said.

When the children reported the alleged abuse, Lee took

off running. He's been on the run for almost a year.

Police found him in Idaho, after a tipster snitched him

out.
