A paedophile beaten unconscious by the father of the boy he was abusing has been handed a hefty prison sentence.

Raymond Frolander (18), from Daytona Beach, Florida, was left badly beaten after being caught abusing an 11-year-old boy. 

The boy's father caught the 18-year-old abusing his son last year and, in a fit of rage, beat Frolander unconscious before calling police. 

He told responders: "I just walked in and found a grown man molesting (my child), and I got him in a bloody puddle for you right now.

"Send an ambulance. He is going to need one."

The father has not been charged for the sustained attack. He said he would have gladly killed Frolander but that his son stopped him. 

“My immediate feeling was to kill him so he will never hurt anyone again,” the unnamed father told Khon news last year. 

“My son saved Raymond. Raymond was motionless on our floor, I went to the kitchen to grab a butcher knife and my son stopped me. My son came in front of me and saved his attacker’s life.”
 
Outside the court he told reporters: "He's going to learn in the next 25 years why I let him live," it was reported.
 
The 18-year-old took a plea deal to avoid the mandatory life sentence, and earlier pleaded guilty to charge of lewd or lascivious molestation of a child.
 
Frolander will have to register as a sex offender for life and will be required to wear a GPS monitor after he's released from prison, WESH reported. 
 
Speaking to investigators following the attack, the young boy said he had been playing games at the property with a friend when the attack occurred. When his friend left Frolander took him into a back room where he molested him.
 
He told police it wasn't an isolated incident, and that Frolander had been abusing him since he was 8 years old. 
 
Asked whether he had any problem with the father's violent reaction, Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood said he was just "acting like a dad".
