Child Abuse, Pedophiles and Child Protection Service Crimes - Conspiricy of Silence
The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring's pimps were a pair of political power brokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks.The legislators' efforts resulted in rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering corruption of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI, Secret Service, and Justice Department, effecting an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network.
The Franklin child prostitution ring allegations were a series of high-profile accusations and legal actions surrounding an alleged child sex ring serving prominent citizens of Omaha, Nebraska, as well as high-level U.S. politicians. The scandal centered around the actions of prominent Republican Lawrence E. King, a former official at the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union in Omaha.
King was eventually arrested and convicted of embezzlement charges.
The allegations were investigated by a special Nebraska state legislative committee and the FBI. A 1990 grand jury report concluded the allegations amounted to a "carefully crafted hoax" although the alleged perpetrators of said hoax were never officially identified. While the grand jury accepted that she had been abused as a child, it ruled that Alisha Owen, one of King's three principal accusers on the sexual charges, had misidentified those responsible. Owen was subsequently convicted of perjury after refusing to retract her statement and served approximately 4 1/2 years in prison. Another of the principal accusers recanted, and the third was ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial for perjury. Allegations of a cover up, including claims of a connection between the Franklin case and a Washington, D.C. male prostitution ring, have circulated since.
King eventually served 10 years of a 15-year prison sentence for embezzlement and fraud. While in prison he was served with a $1M default judgment, after he failed to appear in court to respond to civil charges of kidnapping and child abuse.
