Man Retried for Rape of Elderly Woman is Sentenced

(570 WSYR) - A Syracuse man who was retried for sexually-assaulting an elderly woman is going back to jail for decades. Vincent Torres was serving a 97 year sentence after being convicted for the rape in 2011. But the conviction was overturned in 2012 because his wife couldn't find a seat in the crowded corutroom and was unable to observe jury selection. Torres was retried this year and forcing the 85 year old victim to relive the assault. Torres was sentenced this morning to 77 years in prison.
