The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Kelly Lumadue. She gets the award for the following.
SANFORD -- A jury Friday convicted a 32-year-old Deltona woman of twice having sex with a 5-year-old boy while her husband, a professional pornographer, filmed the whole thing.What a sicko. I hope Kelly Lumadue rots in jail, but first I make her today's Knucklehead of the Day.
Jurors watched the videotapes Wednesday. They deliberated less than an hour Friday before reaching their verdict.
The woman, Kelly Lumadue, now faces a sentence of life in prison without parole.
Assistant State Attorney Anna Valentini said that is the only sentence allowed by law for Lumadue's crimes of capital sexual battery.
They happened in 1996 at the Longwood-area home Lumadue shared with her husband, Leonard "Bud" Lumadue.
He was a house painter but discovered he could make more money in adult entertainment, Kelly Lumadue told a Seminole County deputy during her confession.
Leonard Lumadue died of cancer in 2003.
A few months later, she decided to throw away his videotapes, she told the deputy. She put some in a garbage bag and hauled them to the curb.
That's where a garbage collector found them, took them home, discovered what they were, then turned them over to authorities.
The boy, now a teenager, did not testify. Defense attorney James "Tad" Figgatt said the teenager did not remember the incidents.
Figgatt portrayed Kelly Lumadue as a long-suffering victim. Her husband coerced and physically abused her, Figgatt said.
Leonard Lumadue pressured her for two months to have sex with the boy, she told the deputy.
"It was something that he really, really wanted me to do," she said.
She had appeared in Leonard Lumadue's films since she was 17, long before they were married, she said. Back then, he was married to someone else, she said.
After the verdict, Lumadue was handcuffed and taken to the Seminole County Jail. She will be sentenced July 27.
