42-year-old Frank Lombard of Durham, North Carolina has been arrested for allegedly offering his adopted 5-year-old son up for sex over the internet. Lombard is also associate director of the Center for Health Policy at Duke University and has been placed on unpaid leave.
An FBI informant allegedly saw Lombard online performing sex acts on an African-American child believed to be one of his adopted sons.
In the chat transcript, “F.L.” is asked how he got access to a child so young. “Adopted,” he replied, and said that the process was “not so hard … esp (sic) for a black boy.”
In the chat, “F.L.” told Palchak that abusing the child was “easier when he was too young to know what was happening and when he couldn’t talk …He had a little too much Benadryl. Was knocked out.”
In a subsequent online chat, the warrant says, “F.L.” invited Palchak, who he did not realize was a police detective, to fly to Durham to have sexual contact with the child. He even suggested a hotel.
