"I mean your activities, your actions have now caused you to be the monster in that young girl's life," said Winnebago County Judge John Jorgensen.

In court the state argued for five years initial confinement and an undetermined amount of extended supervision saying Frantz can't be trusted around young children.

"He cannot control himself while on bond.  I think it's fair to say that he cannot control himself on any type of probation or supervision," said Winnebago County deputy district attorney, Scott Ceman.

The defense used a risk report in court to argue Frantz needs help and they asked for one year in jail and probation so he can get the treatment he needs.
