WINNIPEG - A high -risk sex-offender has been released from prison and is expected to live in Winnipeg. 34 year-old Timothy Torres is considered at high-risk to re-offend in a sexual manner against all females, both children and adults.
Torres is subject to a probation order, which expires on July 1, 2020 directing that he not be alone with any female under 18 years (except for unavoidable contacts in a public place) unless supervised by an adult who has been approved in advance by his probation officer. Torres is also subject to a prohibition order which prohibits him from attending at a public park or public swimming area where persons under 16 years of age are present or can reasonably be expected to be present, or at a day care centre, school ground, playground or community centre. That order expires on September 8, 2023.
Torres’ criminal record includes sexual assault against a child. He was previously convicted in 2009 for sexual assault that occurred in 2007 when he approached an unknown 11 year old girl in the early morning hours, pressured her to get into his car, threatened, and sexually assaulted her. Torres admitted to police he had gone looking for a sex trade worker in his vehicle, became frustrated when he was unable to locate one, and sexually assaulted the 11 year old victim instead. Torres received a 7 year prison sentence (44 months plus credit for 40 months of pre-sentence custody), followed by a 10 year prohibition order.
TORRES was released on Sunday, August 4th, 2019.
