Skip to comments.Durham (gay) man faces long prison term for sex crimes against adopted child

Durham, N.C. A former Duke University employee should serve "a substantial period of incarceration" followed by a lifetime of supervision for sex crimes against a child, according to sentencing guidelines for the crime filed last week in district court.
Frank M. Lombard, 43, was sentenced Monday to 27 years in prison. He pleaded guilty in December to a federal child sex charge. He was arrested in June after authorities said Washington police caught him in a sting operation.
Lombard was charged with attempting to induce someone to cross state lines to engage in a sexual offense. He pleaded to sexual exploitation of a minor, a charge which carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
In recommending the sentence, U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. wrote, "The defendant betrayed the trust of his adopted child in the most deplorable way imaginable. His child became nothing more than a pawn in his persistent attempts to gratify himself by sexually molesting him and chatting online with as many other pedophiles as possible."
Lombard was fired from his position as associate director of the Center for Health Policy at Duke in July and has been in a D.C. jail since August.
In court documents, an undercover member of the Washington Metropolitan Police Department described an online chat in which someone named "F.L." invited him to Durham to have sexual contact with his adopted 5-year-old son.
The officer made contact with "F.L" after an informant told FBI agents that he saw a man called cooper2 perform sex acts on a young African-American child via online chats on multiple occasions. The informant's description of "cooper2" corresponded with the description of Lombard.

The guy got 27 years. I noticed most of the media are playing up the child porn and down the child abuse of his black adopted son.
We are told these are the actions of consenting adults in private. When do children get to consent to being adopted into same-sex couple households?
this is why God gave us bullets.
and no mentioned of homosexuality and racism, but being a member of Duke University he would obviously get a pass on those issues
some folks just NEED to be killed!
Being “gay” is all about the sex.
I can’t believe they allow gays to adopt.
This is the reason why adoptions should not be allowed to go to sexually deviant types. IMO only heterosexual married couples should be allowed to adopt.
Ping for your ping list, abb.
Utterly putrid & disgusting!!!!
I cant believe they allow gays to adopt.
When I'm being extra nice, I refer to them as homosexuals, otherwise it's queers or in the case of child molesting queers it's filthy disease ridden queers.
In before the “gays are not pre-disposed to pedophilia” idiots.
Folks, this kind of abuse happens in heterosexual couples too. Being straight isn’t an automatic pass for this never happening. I have heard from several adoptees in hetero couple families that have suffered abuse as well.
I hope his new roommates give him a warm and hearty welcome.
I think we should libertarianize adoption. Birth parents who are giving up their kid for adoption should be able to fill out a form specifying what category of parent they want to get their child:
End of story.
Gays are predisposed to perverted sex, because they are perverts.
The highest achievement of gay sex is an orgasm. It is the ultimate selfish act. This, in my opinion, is why homosexuals are so narcisisstic, yes, just like Ibama.
The homosexual can see nothing past him or herself and their own perverted sex drive. That perversion is the primary pillar, if not the only pillar, of his/ her existance.
Only 27 years? He’ll not only be in gay heaven in jail; he will be out before his adopted son’s 27th birthday. Rapists of infants and toddlers or child rapists who were in a position of authority over a child younger than 12 deserve the death penalty.
So did those 85 outspoken professors from Duke write a scathing article in the press condemning this?
They were always so concerned with sex crimes before... so much so that they would publicly lynch innocent white boys in the press without a shred of evidence...
I don’t think gays/lesbians should be able to adopt, or make a turkey baster baby
What about pillow-biting fudgepackers?
You are either disingenuous, or seriously uninformed as to the statistical disparities between hetero and homo abuse of children.
Stop already with the single-incident-makes-a-trend theory. Learn to measure and count. You will find a vast difference.
Probably because the federal charges on which he was convicted were about the child pornography. The actual abuse is a state matter.
Yes, but homosexuals have, by defintion, a twisted and perverted sex drive.
And perversions come in clusters.
Child molesters should be executed. They used to be. The death penalty needs to be brought back big time. Why should taxpayers fork out billions of dollars to keep evil scum like this alive?
When I’m being extra nice, I refer to them as homosexuals, otherwise it’s queers or in the case of child molesting queers it’s filthy disease ridden queers
How about sodomizers?
27 years? Should be death.
Good answer. Thank you.
27 years? Should be death.
Put him into the general population and you will probably get your wish. My guess is he will be handed around a little before someone nails him. I’m betting the black cons are gonna have a real good time with this one. Just sayin. While Duke is in NC, it ain’t in prison. The only thing this guy has going for him is he is headed to a Fed Pen not a state one. There is a difference.
Good point. Of course they won’t.
Oh, but he was just “loving” his adopted son/sarc. These people should be executed, not imprisoned.
They should room him with Bubba.
and also offering the child out to others. I agree he should have gotten life.
“Former Duke University employee”... You mean Duke actually FIRED him?? Wow, I am impressed!
Another democrat in jail.
He will not survive prison for 27 yrs.
Oklahoma is attempting to change that.....
I’m hoping for some prison justice to take place for this monster.
No its because he is gay. Let him have been a priest and this whole story would’ve been handled differently from the beginning.
I just realized - this guy didn’t “get” 27 years - this is what the DA recommended that he get. Some liberal judge could probably give him a whole lot less - bears watching.
Probably, since a story about a priest with a foster son he's pimping out and using for child pornography would be even more lurid than this one. Of course, the priest would still be gay, so I'm not sure what your point is.
Would not surprise me.........
Read it again. He was sentenced to 27 years. Sentencing guidelines are 15 to 30, the DA recommended the max. The judge gave him 27, plus lifetime probation. And since there's no parole in the federal system, he'll serve the whole 27. He'll be 70 when he gets out, assuming he lives that long.
I like Texas, they execute more criminals than any other state. They’re still under-executing.
(Hoping he does not last 27 hours in jail.....)
These are children, not puppies being adopted from a shelter. This must not be allowed to continue!
I'm not ready to say either way on that. All I know is my personal experience. Over the years I've known several gay men well, one has been a dear friend for over 30 years. Any one of them would tell you they are much too self-centered to be a parent! I watch as they buy all the new gadgets, take great vacations and live in nice places.. no dependants and that's the way they like it!!
The N&O buried this story.
OK - I stand corrected. Guy should invest in a large supply of soap on a rope - he’s going to need it. I wonder if he gets minimum, medium or max security. I.E. how hard his “hard time” is going to be.
Seriously, the guy is probably not going to be classified as a dangerous prisoner or an escape risk, and being around dangerous prisoners will probably get the guy killed. Not that he doesn’t deserve it, but the Bureau of Prisons frowns on that sort of thing. My guess is that he’ll go to a minimum security federal prison camp. I could be wrong, though. In either case, he’ll be there until he’s an old man.
