Another member of LPD is in the spotlight again, or is he???
Officer LanFrankie has been allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of furnishing alcohol to a minor, the original charge was/is CSC on a child.
Why is this man being allowed to plead down to a misdemeanor???? Will he have to register as a sex offender????
Questions I would love to have answered bt somebody but no none wants to answer them!!!!

Officer Lanfrankie will be sentenced August 30 @8:30 am before Clinton County District court Judge Wells. The report indicates that Lanfrankie raped his neice Megan over a period of many years. The sexual assaults began when the child was 11 years old. She is the daughter of Lanfrankie's sister . The young woman did not wish to testify in open court. Therefore he was allowed to plead guilty to Contributing to the Delinquency of Children . This is a 12 month misdemeanor. As part of the plea deal he resigned his position with Lansing Police effective August 30. The concern that some of us share is that he may have sexually assaulted other young girls in the course of his duties as a police officer.
May I ask how you know what you know.

She may not have wanted to testify in open court (quite understandable) but their is a bigger issue here. He should be held accountable for his actions, he shouldn't be given a slap on the wrist because the victim wants to get past this. Domestic Assault victims are always trying to go back on their complaints but the State of Michigan picks up the charges, in this case the state should pick the charges up as well. This man is the worse kind of pedophile out their, he has been paid for years to serve and protect while serving himself and protecting no-one, especially not his victim(S).

He needs to be in prison and he should be forced to register as a pedophile........you asked how I got my info, i'm a member of the LPD family who is more than willing to go public with what I know about this bastard if the justice system won't do it's job. How many more young children will have to be victimized? How many more will be put in harms way if his history is hidden behind a simple misdememanor? We hear stories all the time of pedophiles finding victims everywhere they go because their history doesn't properly follow them. Years down the line, when other victims emerge (and they will)a simple "i'm sorry" from the legal system won't mean much to them or their parents.

Our legal system has a obligation to ALL PEOPLE, not just the victim, to stop this bastard from making more victims and allowing him to plead to a misdemeanor isn't justice for anyone but him.

As stated above, if the legal system won't protect our children by prosecuting him, thani'll put his business out there and it will be perfectly LEGAL!!!!

As to the question of having to register as a sex offender he will not! If he is truley only convicted of giving alcohol to minors he will not. Being that I deal with the sex offenders coming into verify and change their address, I have been to many MSP classes on dealing with the sex offenders and this is one of the sore spots with the Sex Offender Unit. Many slim balls, like LanFrankie, do sexual crimes, get them plead down to some thing else just so they do not have to register as a sex offender.
Another problem with LanFrankie resigning his position with the Lansing PD is that he can go out and get another job as a police officer. I agree with my other family member in what they wrote. There is a serious problem with the court & prosecution system.

What's also ironic here is the fact that lately LPD has gone above and beyond to attack certain minority employees while trying to quietly push out people like LanFrankie. At one time, minorities were the ones who "should not have been hired in the first place". It seems to me like the minorities are sitting back watching and waiting for LPD's command staff to find a reason to turn
the attention onto them just to get it off of LanFrankie and the questions that will surely come.

Memo to LPD: Minorities aren't the screw ups you make us out to be and if you guys stopped focusing in on us so much you would be able to weed out the REAL perverts and criminals amongst your "own".

By the way, tell Prince to get over himself and tell that wife of his to stop parading her boytoy around for all to see. What kind of woman/mother would pull that crap out in public????

His sentencing is today at 8:30, if any of you LPD family members know what the turnout was, could you please post it for all to know?

I am disgusted to know that something like this could happen and he will just walk from it ... just like everything else he ever did. I wonder how the rest of his family feels about this.

It will be really interesting to see what his outcome is, apparently Clinto County is refusing to abide by FOIA guidelines because several people have requested his arrest report. Why are they protecting him I wonder??????

Ex-Lansing cop gets 6 months in jail

ST. JOHNS — A Lansing police officer was sentenced Wednesday to six months in jail for conspiracy to contribute to the delinquency of a minor.

James Lanfrankie, 47, a 10-year employee of the police department, has resigned, Police Chief Mark Alley said.“I’m certainly disappointed in his actions,” he said.“The resignation speaks for itself.”

The charge stemmed from an incident about six years ago involving a 15-year-old girl.

Lanfrankie pleaded guilty July 10 in Clinton County District Court to the misdemeanor. He faced a maximum of one year in jail.

Lanfrankie’s attorney, Bernie Finn, said his client is “pleased that this incident has been resolved.

He should have received a longer sentence than that one.

Something that concerns me though: Why is the LSJ placing a "not so bad" spin on it? Those of us who know better can read this article and go yeah right.....she was a baby when he started molesting her, like 11 or something, not 15 as stated in the LSJ.

It is imperative that anyone within the LPD family come forth with any information they have about Lanfrankies criminal activities . There is no doubt in my mind that an IA investigation will be launched. I can assure you that I have the influence through my position to see that the follow through is there. I leaked the story to the LSJ because I hoped that other victims might come forward. The LSJ is not as tough as it used to be.

I know there was an Internal Affairs investigation done, so if the LSJ would be interested, all they would have to do, I think, is FOIA his file to see what it contains. On another note, some members of LPD seem to think it was his step-daughter, are you sure it was his niece?? It would be really nice if Clinton County would hand over that file and stop trying to protect the pervert.
The LSJ should really delve into the fact that he is now a un-convicted pedophile and within 6 months he will be free to go after his next victim.
The justice system screwed this one up baaaadddd!!!!

Without question the victim is Lanfrankie's niece Megan from Naperville, Illinois. She came forward because she feared that Lanfrankies daughter , now the same age as she when the sexual assaults first occured, would also be victimized. Megan is a very brave and lovely young woman.
Regarding FOIA , police investigations are exempt until the case has been adjudicated. Now that he has been sentenced FOIA requests should be processed within 5 business days. I FOIA'ed the case yesterday. Regarding FOIA for Internal Affairs documents , forget it, that info is exempt. Regarding other criminal matters Lanfrankie pled no contest to Domestic Violence Deferral 1st offense in 2000 in connection with a an assault on his second ex wife . He was sentenced , also by Judge Wells , to two years probation. After the successful completion of his probation his record was wiped clean as part of the plea deal that allowed him to keep the badge. In yet another Clinton County case Lanfankie was put on a -supervised only -visitation schedule with his children for nearly three years between 2000 and 2003 as a result of child abuse.He and his second wife were divorced in 1999. He is a very bad man.

Would all of you please keep in mind as you post this very personal information about the victim that she is a very real person with very real feelings who is dealing with a very awful situation? As you move forward with your desire for truth or vengeance, keep in mind that this young woman has suffered a great deal. Do not add to her suffering. She has been victimized enough.

With all due respect to the victim, what we would not like to add is more victims to this UNCONVICTED pedophiles list. My very young sisters were victims of Molestation so I know what's at stake here. I also know the public has a right to know what type of a person LanFrankie is. It's easy to keep up with the whereabouts of convicted pedohiles, but how do we keep up with the LanFrankies of the world if everyone allows them to hide behind ridiculous misdemeanor charges? As a parent, I have a right to know about all pedophiles..........convicted or not!!

No CSC charges were ever brought against Lanfrankie and what he was convicted of was not pled down from any CSC charge. The victim has changed her story time and time again. I fully support any and every opportunity to get pedofiles off our streets and I'm not a Lanfrankie cheerleader but let's not convict ANYONE without the opportunity for a fair trial.

Bottom line: He's a unconvicted pedophile who was not convicted because his victim would not testify in open court, he pled down to a misdemenaor charge stemming from a CSC incident against the vicitm. The fact that he wasn't convicted of CSC says a lot about our justice system!
