Authorities in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, charged local criminal defense attorney Patrick Francis Lomax with 48-counts of child pornography-related charges Monday.

Detectives from the Delaware County Criminal Investigation Division joined by officers of the Media Police Department executed an arrest warrant on the accused pedophile early Monday morning.

The complaint alleges that Lomax set up hidden cameras in the victim’s bedroom in November 2019. The victim’s mother, Lomax’s domestic partner, did not know about the cameras.

“This is a very disturbing case,” Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said Monday. “These videos were made in his house.”

Stollsteimer said the investigation started on Jan. 22 when the victim journeyed to his local police department with three small video cameras and two memory cards.

“The victim is seen having sexual encounters with people in his bedroom after Patrick Lomax is seen in his video setting up the cameras to record these encounters,” Stollsteimer declared.

The victim resided with his mother and Lomax for nearly a decade in Media Borough.

“This is extraordinary disturbing for many reasons,” Stollsteimer continued. “This person held himself out as a parental figure in this victim’s life.”

Investigators also discovered similar footage dating back five years. The despicable defense lawyer victimized nine people, three of which were minors at the time.  

“In total there are nine victims that we have identified through the different videos that have been made over the course of years,” Stollsteimer said. “Three of those victims were minors at the time the sexual encounter was filmed.”

This is extraordinary disturbing for many reasons.

This person held himself out as a parental figure in this victim’s life.

“This is an unbelievable disclosure,” a source close to the situation told Your Content under the condition of anonymity. “It’s especially worrying that he was permitted to continue business as usual after the brutal attack in 2016!”

According to court documents, an outraged Lomax attacked his client in the hallways during a custody proceeding.

Jeeteah Manyeah retained Lomax in 2016 for $2,000 to represent him in a bitter custody matter. Manyeah had not seen his children in two years, according to the filing.

The two-timing attorney approached Manyeah with an offer from his son’s mother. When he rejected the offer, Lomax went into a dangerous rage.

“He just grabbed me by my mouth and neck and he just shoved me and said, ‘Shut up!’ I don’t even know what to do right now,” Meenyeah previously told the Daily Times. “First day of court and this is what happened. He told me to shut up, like I’m a kid. ‘Shut up, sit down! Shut up, sit down!’”

“He told me, ‘Don’t get me arrested, I’ll give you your money back,’” Manyeah said. “It took me damn near six months to collect $2,000 and then I give him that money to beat me up?’”

“This dirt-bag was hiding in plain sight,” an individual at the Delaware County Park Police told Your Content. “He had the courage to belittle clients.”

“You’ve got to have some big balls to pull this off when you visit courthouses every day.” the insider continued. “His demeanor, it’s somebody you look at and then look away because he’s not doing anything out of the ordinary.”

According to Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer, the investigation into the disgraced attorney is far from finished, noting Lomax also faces a federal probe as detectives continue scouring through his grim past.

“These are serious, serious charges,” said Stollsteimer. “There will be a continuing investigation as more facts come to light. There might be the possibility of a federal investigation as well.”

“He was acting as the tribune of justice when in fact he’s a criminal,” Stollsteimer continued.

“Mr. Lomax was a criminal defense lawyer here in Delaware County, meaning he held himself out in court everyday as somebody that was standing up for justice – and in fact, he was committing crimes going back years; some of the most disgusting and disturbing crimes imaginable – videotaping children in sexual encounters.”

The accused pedophile remains behind bars at George W. Hill Correctional Facility in lieu of $150,000 bail. Sources told Your Content he is being housed in protective custody.

The prosecution will be led by assistant district attorney Christopher Boggs.

Boggs also serves as Chief of the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office Special Victims Unit.
