Frank Zappa Guitarist Roy Estrada Gets 25 Years For Child Molestation


Rocker Frank Zappa’s longtime bassist Roy Estrada has been sentenced to serve 25 years in prison for child abuse.

The 68-year-old musician, who previously served jail time in California for committing a lewd act with a child, is back in the slammer in Texas for molesting a female family member under the age of 14 for an extended amount of time.

Tarrant County spokeswoman, Melody McDonald, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram newspaper, “The victim’s family was unaware that he was a convicted sex offender… Estrada was sentenced to 25 years in a plea bargain agreement and is not eligible for parole. He will be 93 years old before he is released from prison.”

Estrada, who was a member of Frank Zappa’s band the Mothers of Invention, is also a founding member of rockers Little Feat.
