Frederic won despite critics who pointed out his run-ins with law enforcement. He served three weekends in county jail in 2012 after a traffic conviction for driving without a license and eluding. Separately, he paid $500 in fines for a charge of marijuana possession.

Frederic has said he has moved on from his past.
