Kenneth Alex Grad & Laura Grad

Laura and Kenneth Grad
Crime: Child Abuse

Not everyone is cut out to be a good parent. I should know because I’ve literally written about hundreds of hellbeastly parents who have killed or nearly killed their offspring. And when I learn about monstrous parents like Kenneth Alex Grad and Laura Grad of Lakewood, Ohio, I find myself wishing that fertility be granted to only those people who have the makings of good fathers and mothers.

Kenneth and Laura Grad’s baby boy suffered greatly at the hands of his parents. The abuse began when he was a newborn, and by the time he was 2 months old he suffered two dozen broken bones and a lacerated scrotum. The poor infant had broken legs, fractured foot bones, fractured fingers, a fractured skull, a fractured arm, a fractured collarbone, a fractured shin and fractured ribs.

Every move that baby made, and every breath that baby took must have been excruciating.

The baby beater was Kenneth Alex Grad. Laura Grad may have participated in the abuse (not proven) but she definitely did nothing to save her son for the first 2 months of his life. She did not kick her brutal husband out, or turn him in. She did not grab her badly injured infant and take him to the hospital or a shelter. She did not call 9-1-1 to report the abuse. Nope, she just let Kenneth Grab assault her newborn baby and break bone after bone after bone. Twenty-four bones!

I don’t know what kind of creature is willing to stand by and witness her helpless infant being tortured and abused even once, and do absolutely nothing about it. Laura Grad stood by for 2 whole months! Finally, in June 2008 the baby was taken to Akron Children’s Hospital, and that’s when the injuries were discovered.

Thankfully the baby recovered and the fractures healed. Bless his heart, I hope he remembers nothing of the pain and agony he had to endure.

The baby boy and an older child were removed from the home and eventually adopted by another family.

Kenneth Grad was arrested in July 2008 and charged with felony counts of endangering children and 3 counts of felonious assault. Laura Grad was arrested in September 2008 and charged with felony child endangering.

Now I know you’re probably thinking, “Cleo! This is such an old story! This all happened back in 2008! Why are you writing about it now?”

I’m writing about it now because Kenneth Alex Grad has only recently had his trial. Incredibly it took years to get the baby-abusing bastard to face justice.

Laura Grad had her trial in October 2009. She was convicted of two 3rd-degree felony child endangerment charges. The hellbitch was sentenced to 5 years in prison, but appealed. In October 2012, one of her convictions was dropped and her prison time was reduced to 3 years. She was released from Marysville Reformatory in November 2012, and she’ll be on parole until the end of 2015.

Unbelievably, Laura Grad had yet another baby with Kenneth Grad! WTF?!?! The child was taken away by authorities because duh! those two hellbeasts are completely unfit to be parents.

As to Kenneth Grad, he had originally pleaded no contest to his charges in 2009, but then he changed his mind and withdrew his plea. And then the legal circus began. For 6½ years, Kenneth Grad cycled through 13 different defense attorneys, firing them and changing his plea back and forth. He claimed to be sick every time he was to go to trial in order to get postponements. He managed to delay his trial more than 20 times. He also got a transfer to a different courtroom.

In September 2014 Kenneth Grad tried the sickness ploy once again. His attorney submitted a letter from a doctor that said the stress of a trial would cause a heart attack or stroke and could kill the baby-beating bastard.

Kenneth GradThe Medina County judge ordered the doctor to appear in court to answer questions, but that didn’t happen. And so finally, finally, finally, in December 2014 Kenneth Alex Grad, 44, was in front of a jury. By then one witness had died and another had moved out of state. That said, the delay did not ultimately work to the baby beater’s favour.

The defense that was presented was that the baby had medical conditions that caused the injuries. They argued that the baby’s scrotum was damaged because he had impetigo. His scrotum was lacerated! Impetigo does that? I think not.

The defense also argued that the baby’s bones were broken because he suffered from a metabolic bone disease – osteogenesis imperfecta. This is a very real medical condition, and it causes bones to fracture extremely easily. It is a lifelong affliction.

The trouble with this defense was that in the 6½ years since Kenneth Grad’s arrest, his son did not have even one more bone fracture.

Dr. Richard Steiner, a pediatrician and board-certified expert in child abuse pediatrics, testified that some of the victim’s fractures were caused by soembody whipping, grabbing and snatching at his limbs. He also testified that because the injuries appeared on both sides of the baby’s body, they weren’t caused by dropping or an accident.

At the end of the trial Kenneth Grad was still alive. He hadn’t had a heart attack or stroke after all, despite his doctor’s dire predictions.

On December 18, 2014 the jury reached a verdict. They had found Kenneth Alex Grad guilty of 3 counts of endangering children and 3 counts of felonious assault, 2nd-degree felonies, and 2 counts of endangering children, 3rd-degree felonies.

As the verdict was read, Laura Grad broke down and cried. What the f*ck is wrong with that woman? She chose her husband over her children, and exposed them to great harm. She’s still married to him despite losing her children, despite knowing he abused and tortured her baby boy. Any normal woman would have kicked him to the curb or had his ass hauled away by police. Obviously Laura Grad is not normal.

Hopefully with her beloved hubby incarcerated Laura Grad won’t be procreating any more. She has proven to be a total failure as a mother. IMO she doesn’t deserve another shot at motherhood.

Kenneth Grad is facing a maximum of 30 years in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced at the end of January 2015. I shall endeavour to keep readers posted — reminders are always welcome.

I for one am hoping he gets the maximum. And I hope all his cellmates know what a big brave man he is, doing battle with a newborn baby.

I wish the Grad children all the best in the world. I hope they are living happy, safe lives full of love and fun and success. They deserve happiness, unlike their hellbeastly parents.

UPDATE

Kenneth Grad was sentenced to 24 years in prison.

    Thank goodness the baby survived the abuse! He must be a resilient little guy. I hope and pray nobody ever lays a hand on him again in anger.

    I can’t understand how any woman can stand by and allow her baby to be beaten. I’d put my life on the line before I let that happen to my kids. I would scorch the earth if anyone hurt my babies. She’s unnatural, that’s what she is. They’re both unnatural.

    Kenny boy delayed justice but couldn’t escape it forever. I wonder if it was the same doctor who gave him medical excuses for postponements for 6 years. Strange how the baby bashing batterer didn’t have a heart attack after the doctor made it sound almost inevitable. Well now Kenny doesn’t have to be stressed out about court any more. Lucky him. He can concentrate on making new friends in prison now.

    Is it wrong of me to wish that 24 bones in his body are snapped? And his scrotum torn? It probably makes me a bad person but that’s what I’m wishing for.

      Holy crap PJ you’re going to have nightmares tonight. You just blew through 6 articles. You probably have hell beast overdose now.

    • Lillith says:

      PJ,if it makes you a bad person, then join the club. I believe what a person (if you can even call these sorry sacks of human waste people) should treat others in the same way they wish for people to treat them, in words and actions. I wish upon him the same horrific treatment he showed to that innocent child. As for the hellbitch who did nothing to protect he child, I don’t wish any violence upon her wretched, sorry arse, but it would only be fitting if someone put her in solitary confinement for about two or three weeks and just forgot she was there…

    • BeenThere says:

      PJ, absolutely not! You think with a clear conscience of a non child abusing human. Trashturds like these losers deserve 24 broken bones.
      I know what broken bones feel like after falling through a attic floor during a no knock search via work. I was in the hospital in IV pain meds for months and 30 years later still wear splints on both hand/arms. I had to give up the job I love.
      What the baby went through is HEARTBREAKING…

    I to hope this animal gets the max he deserves all the pain and suffering. He should be forced to have “Im a baby beater thats why Im in here” and if it was a rusty nail used I’d be ok with that.

  6. Michelle says:

    Wow. What a catch! I’m a bit surprised he didn’t claim self defense. Those newborns can be dangerous.

    And what douche of a doctor writes a note to get a baby beater out of facing trial? Maybe it’s just me, but I’d be pushing him out the door and telling him he needs to grow up for once and act like the man he obviously isn’t.

    • Lillith says:

      That kind of so called doctor is the kind a relative of mine goes to- They accept cash only and when you walk into the ‘exam’ room the doctor is waiting with prescription pad in hand going “So, what you want today?” (Ok, so I’m just speculating, but…) There are plenty of crooked doctors in the world, like with any other profession. It’s all good though, I’m sure that the defendant had to pay well for a ploy that didn’t work.

  7. AngryLittleMexican says:

    It’s a given this scrotum lacerating baby beater is a step lower that dog shit in my book, but this woman? (I refuse to call her a mother) Seriously, she needs to have her vagina lacerated. Off her body. Traitorous Bitch, no one should allow their child to come to harm. Ugh.
