Child molester gets 225 years in jail 

Thomas Lee Frazier, 45, of South San Francisco, was sentenced to 225 years to life in prison Thursday for repeatedly molesting a 12-year-old girl over a three-year period.

The victim was the daughter of Frazier’s live-in girlfriend. An anonymous tip led a child protective services employee to contact the girl, who in turn contacted police.

"The police went to his work and asked him to give a statement and that was when he confessed," Deputy District Attorney Greg Devitt said.

On Feb. 16, a jury took three hours to find Frazier guilty of 21 counts of child molestation and 15 counts of aggravated sexual assault. Because Frazier didn’t testify, it wasn’tclear what his defense was, Devitt said.

His attorney, Steven Chase, said his client’s version of events was much different than the victim’s and that police extracted a confession through manipulative questioning.

Frazier’s sentencing comes after John Olp, 42, was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison for molesting his 14-year-old niece over a five-year period.

On the night of June 16, 2006, Colma police found Olp with the victim in a parked car at a cemetery while he was preparing to molest her. Olp pleaded guilty on Dec. 22 to 10 counts of child molestation.
