Toler has been out on bond since three days after he was arrested. He was put back in the Flagler County Jail immediately after being found guilty by a jury on Friday.

At the time of the incident, Sheriff Rick Staly had this to say about Toler. “This is a traumatic situation and, if this child survives, he will spend the rest of his life with scars from this abuse, both physical and emotional. Some people should not be allowed to be a parent. I hope he spends the rest of his life in prison.”

Sentencing is scheduled for January 7, 2022.
