Daytona Beach, FL – After pleading “no contest,” a 27-year-old Port Orange man was sentenced to 30 years in state prison for molesting a victim under 12 years of age.

John Scanlon pleaded “no contest” to 3 charges of Lewd and Lascivious Molestation on a Victim under 12 years of age, and when he finally gets out of prison he’ll be placed on a lifetime of sex-offender probation and will have to register as a sexual predator.

Scanlon gave his “no contest” plea on Tuesday, September 20, sparing the victim a traumatic trial process, and saving himself from a possible life sentence.

The victim in this case suffered serious injuries as a result of the crime and had to get surgery.

Scanlon had no prior criminal history before he entered this plea to the 3 felony charges, all of which are punishable by life in prison.
