San Diego Unified School District worker accused of trying to lure child for sex

David Bruce Lee arrested in Escondido


A human resources manager for the San Diego Unified School District is accused of going online and trying to lure a minor for sex.

Escondido police arrested 43-year-old David Bruce Lee at a Vons parking lot Tuesday. He was released from jail Wednesday after posting $50,000 bond.

Police told 10News they had been tracking Lee online, but they did not reveal the age of the minor and did not say if the minor was male or female.

"I'm actually shocked," said Lee's Escondido neighbor who did not want to be identified. "I'm sickened because he has two little children."

The same neighbor told 10News Lee has a daughter, son and wife. The neighbor said she was sorry for what his family was likely going through.

"Probably pure hell," she said. "You know, I'm glad his parents weren't around to see this. They were very nice people."

The neighbor said Lee's parents lived in the home before Lee moved in about a year ago.

The charges against Lee have also caused trouble for him at the San Diego Unified School District, as he has been placed on administrative leave.

10News learned Lee never had contact with students in his role as human resources manager. He has been with the district since January 2003.

A district spokesman said Lee cleared a standard background check required by the state.
