FBI: Duke University Official Charged With Adopting Boy For Sex

Authorities have arrested and charged a Duke University official who they say offered his adopted five-year-old son for sex.

The FBI's Washington field office said the school's associate director of the Center for Health Policy, Frank Lombard, was caught in an Internet sting.

Authorities said that Lombard tried to persuade a person -- whom he did not know was a police officer -- to travel to North Carolina to have sex with Lombard's child.

Court documents charge that Lombard identified himself online as "perv dad for fun."

The papers also say an unnamed informant, facing charges in his own child sex case, tipped off authorities to Lombard's activities.

    Read the warrant on the WRAL website. It is enough to make even seasoned law enforcement officers puke! Kudos to the MPD detective in this case. May the defendant receive the maximum punishment.

    I think this was a single father. No mother in the home.

    Where is the mother in all of this. My heart goes out to this little defenseless boy who should have loving parents and be playing tee ball. I certainly pray God sends him to a loving environment.

    Yeah, i forgot, no conservative republican men would ever do anything like this, right melvin in Jacksonville? You're a good old fashioned boy from the south right? That would never happen down there....Oh, I think they'd just rather do someone else's wife..... like that's not immoral either. All men suck! Anyone ever touches my boys and they will pray the police will come to save them from me!

    Why the shock and the outrage. This guy is a Liberal, who is employed by an extremely Liberal college, who lives in an extremely Liberal City, who was investigated by a Liberal before adopting this child. Does anyone see a correlation here, This guy is probably just the tip of the iceberg.

    Kill him and they still need to fire the racist professors that were against the lacross team.

    Castrate him, then bury him up to his chest in an ant pile with honey dripping from his hair.
