A man who was heavily beaten by the father of a child he sexually abused has been sentenced to 25 years in a US prison.
Eighteen-year-old Raymond Frolander from Daytona Beach, Florida, was beaten unconscious and left with obvious facial injuries after being caught abusing the 11-year-old boy last year.
After administering his own punishment, the boy’s father then called police to say: “I just walked in and found a grown man molesting (my child), and I got him in a bloody puddle for you right now.”
The father – who will not face any charges for the assault – later said he would have killed Frolander had his son not stopped him.
Frolander took a deal to prevent a mandatory life sentence, but will be registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life and will also have to wear a GPS monitor upon his release, NBC News affiliate WESH reported.
After the sentence, the father – who was not charged – told reporters at the station: “He’s going to learn in the next 25 years why I let him live.”
