DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. –A 18-year-old pedophile whose bloodied mugshot went viral last year after he was severely beaten by the victim’s father was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Raymond Frolander took a plea deal this week, helping him avoid life in prison, PIX 11 reports. He pleaded no contest to lewd and lascivious molestation of a child in Volusia County Court in Florida.
Last year, Frolander was found abusing an 11-year-old in a barn. The boy’s father walked in on the abuse, PIX 11 reports, and pummeled the 18-year-old unconscious. The father then called police.
“He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you,” the father told police.
The dad was not charged with a crime. He told WESH that he would have killed Frolander had his son not asked him to help.
While walking out of court Thursday, the victim’s father told the media, “He’s going to learn in the next 25 years why I let him live.”
Frolander will have a lifetime status as a sex offender once he is released from prison.
