Frank M. Lombard, the Duke University pedophile father of two adoptive black sons has apparently accepted "guilt" for his crime and a plea agreement will be announced on December 17th.
The filing of an information, since it implies the defendant's acceptance of guilt, typically means that a plea agreement is imminent. The one-page information that Lombard will acknowledge today states that he forced a minor to "engage in sexually explicit conduct ... for the purpose of transmitting a live visual depiction of such conduct."
The sentence for sexual exploitation of a minor is generally around 15 years....
According to the original arrest warrant, Lombard allegedly told an undercover police officer that he had sexually molested the child himself multiple times.It is unbelievable to me that Lombard will spend only 15 years behind bars for the terrible things he did to his own boy. The adopted child that Lombard admittedly molested was just 5-years-old at the time of Lombard's arrest. We do not know how long the child endured this horrible environment in his own home, with another adoptive father and Duke University employee, Kenneth Shipp, who says he knew nothing at all about Lombard's rape of their own child.
The FBI's sting reports said that Lombard told a prison inmate that he drugged the boy with benedryl to keep him quiet and that his crime was much easier when the boy was not old enough to talk.
Until now, the media has been repugnantly silent about Lombard. I have a lot of material about Lombard, his neighborhood, the neighborhood developer and what life might have been like for this little boy. As far as I know, no one is reporting that these children might be safe now, receiving the mericiful counseling they deserve to help them get on with their lives.
If you are not familiar with the Frank M. Lombard case, links to all the background are below, including FBI reports and the words of the prison inmate to watched, live, Lombard rape his own child. Do you think 15 years is justice for these children?
