In July 2014, Raymond Frolander, 18, was caught sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy by the victim’s father, who then beat the teen up.

On April 2, Frolander pleaded no contest to lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim younger than 12. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison and, upon release, he’ll be be listed as a sexual predator and electronically monitored for life.

Frolander was polite to Circuit Judge Leah Case, and didn’t react when his sentence was announced. Originally, Frolander was charged with sexual battery on a person under 12. 

The victim and his father have not been named to protect their identities. “He’s going to learn in the next 25 years why I let him live,” the father told reporters outside of the courtroom. “Now I can’t afford to replace y’all’s cameras so move.”

Frolander was severely beaten by the unnamed father, who then called 911. “I just walked in on a grown man molesting …” the father told the dispatcher. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you, officer.”

He added, “I didn’t proceed to ask him any questions, sir… He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you. I drug him out to the living room.”

The father was not charged. The victim’s grandmother said the boy has received counseling and is now being home-schooled. “He’s doing great,” the grandmother said.

She said she would forgive Frolander. “I’m a very Christian woman and God tells me I have to forgive and I do,” she said. “And I’ve learned to go on, and now I just have to re-instill trust in my grandson.”
