A Lantana man was sentenced to life in prison for sexual abuse of a child.

Denton County jurors handed down three life sentences for Raymond Edward Lumsden, 43, who faced multiple counts of sexual abuse involving his live-in girlfriend’s 7-year-old daughter.

Denton District Judge Brody Shanklin “stacked” the sentences, which means they must be served back-to-back and not at the same time.

Lumsden was arrested in March 2015 on a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child and had lived in the Magnolia subdivision of Lantana.

According to Denton County Jail records, Lumsden has been arrested several times in recent years in connection with charges and warrants for harassment, bond forfeitures, tampering with a government document, violation of probation and failure to identify as a fugitive.
