Sexual Assault Case Against Lee Mein Dismissed in Tulsa County Court

By Tristen Critchfield Mar 17, 2015
All charges in what was initially a sexual battery case against Lee Mein, the father of current UFC welterweight talent Jordan Mein, were recently dismissed in Tulsa County Court.

Mein, 47, was arrested prior to weigh-ins at UFC Fight Night “Henderson vs. dos Anjos” last August for allegedly assaulting a housekeeper at the UFC’s host hotel in Tulsa, Okla. As a result, the UFC banned Mein from attending the evening’s card and cornering his son.

A search of Tulsa County District Court records reveals that Mein entered a plea of not guilty to one count of sexual battery on Sept. 18. The charges were changed from a felony sexual battery to a misdemeanor, outraging public decency, on Dec. 8, and Mein received a 90-day deferred sentence.

On March 6, the case was dismissed and Mein’s record was expunged. Mein’s attorney, Jason Edge, recently issued a statement to

Mr. Mein (Lee) is finally able to put this nightmare behind him. He has maintained his innocence throughout and never once waivered – He simply did not commit this crime! It is sad when some people see a spotlight and are willing to throw false accusations against another innocent person. To be fair it should be noted that the accuser in this case is an ex-con who had just very recently been released from prison. The inconsistencies and improbabilities in her statements are astounding.

The felony charge against Lee was dismissed outright. In the end Lee maintained his innocence; he was found guilty of nothing; and all charges levied against him have been dismissed and expunged from his criminal record. Lee leaves this process just as innocent as he started it.

Although Mein was not allowed cageside for his son’s fight against Mike Pyle in August, he returned to the corner when “Young Gun” fought Thiago Alves at UFC 183 on Jan. 31, after the charge had already been reduced.

The 47-year-old Mein is the founder of Canadian Martial Arts Centre and owns a 6-13 record as a professional mixed martial artist. He last competed at WSOF Canada on Feb. 21, 2014, when he suffered a first-round technical knockout loss to Tim Hague.
