Duke University faculty and students were shocked this week with the arrest of Frank Lombard, the school’s associate director of the Center for Health Policy, for allegedly offering his five-year-old son for sex with a man. Police say that Lombard identified himself as “perv dad for fun” and even suggested the hotel that the undercover officer could use for the crime.
Police say that Lombard told the undercover officer that he had molested the boy, who he adopted as an infant.
He could face 20 years in prison for trying to arrange for such a crime across state lines.
What is interesting is that this was not simply a police sting where the officer trolls sites used by perverts. This case was built on the testimony of an informant who said that he saw Lombard molest a child for hours on a live website called ICUii. The informant is reportedly facing his own charges for child porn or molestation. He said that Lombard molested an African-American boy. Lombard adopted two African-American boys.
