The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Kelly Lumadue

By the time most people turn 21, they are thought to have enough of a concept of right and wrong to be considered a full fledged adult, and they are expected to act according to those concepts. Kelly Lumadue evidently believed that at 21, she should be given an exception to that belief, and even now she fails to take responsibility for her actions and would prefer it if the world would just let her pass the blame onto her dead husband.

Twelve years ago, back when the now 33 year old was just 21, she was married to a pornographer. It wasn't until after her husband died in 2003 that the evidence of her deviant acts was found in the garbage by a sanitations worker. The man had found video tapes on the curb in front of Lumadue's home, and after discovering the content of them, turned them over to police.

The tapes showed Lumadue sexually abusing a 5 year old boy, which she claims was done at the direction of her late husband. She was charged with the abuse after the discovery of the tapes in 2003, and even found guilty- but a judge questioned the verdict on the pretense that despite her ADMITTING the abuse, and despite the graphic evidence provided by the tapes, the victim no longer recalled the abuse and is appearing to live a well adjusted life. The judge demanded a retrial, tossing the conviction out.

Lumadue has once again had her case brought before a jury, and once again the evidence has proven her guilty-- and she's been given a life sentence in jail.
