Taipei prosecutors yesterday attempted to identify the person responsible for posting more sexually explicit photographs and videos on the Internet allegedly taken by Justin Lee (李宗瑞), who has been accused of committing a string of sexual crimes.
More sex videos were posted on adult film Web sites on Saturday, which were free to download.
According to media reports, one video shows Lee having sex with two women and two other videos show Lee engaging in sexual acts with different women despite their attempts to resist his advances.
Police and investigators reportedly found many explicit videos involving more than 40 women on a computer seized at Lee’s home.
Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office spokesman Huang Mo-hsin (黃謀信) said prosecutors yesterday held a meeting with the Criminal Police Bureau and Taipei City Police Department’s computer crime investigation division in an attempt to identify who was distributing the online films and to stop them.
Huang said the maximum penalty for distributing sexual materials was a two-year jail term, while violations of offenses against privacy could result in a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment.
Lee, who was accused of allegedly drugging and raping several women including several celebrities and filming the acts, turned himself in to prosecutors on Thursday evening after spending more than three weeks on the run. He was taken into custody following a hearing at Taipei District Court.
Some of the photographs and videos, believed to be stills taken from the videos, were found posted on the Internet shortly after Lee went on the run.
During the district court hearing, 27-year-old Justin Lee denied the accusations made against him, saying his sexual activities had all been consensual and that he did not secretly film the acts or circulate any photographs or videos of him engaging in sexual acts with women.
