Boal Mansion CEO Charged With Possession of Child Pornography, Exploitation

Boal Mansion CEO Christopher G. Lee, 65, was federally indicted and charged with possession of child pornography and coercing of a minor to engage in sexual activity after a joint investigation by the FBI and State College Police today.

The State College Police were first notified in June of an alleged indecent assault of a 17-year old from another country at the Mansion by Lee. The Boal Mansion is a historic home in Boalsburg that serves as a historic house museum, with the Boal Barn Playhouse in its backyard.

After an investigation, police say Lee had teenage males from out of the country come visit the Boal Mansion often in the summers. They also discovered child pornography in relation to the search. Lee was charged with alleged use of facilities in interstate commerce, specifically the internet and telephone, to coerce and entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity, transportation of a minor with the intent to engage in sexual activity, and receipt of child pornography. He is currently being federally detained.

Anyone with more information about the case can call the State College Police department at 814-234-7150 or leave an anonymous tip on the website. They can also contact FBI agent Clifton Vikara at 814-234-0341 with information.
