BARRON COUNTY -- A man has been sentenced in Barron County Circuit Court for his convictions stemming from a Barron County stabbing incident that occurred in October 2019.

DrydenWire.com previously reported on November 6, 2019, that Emmanuel Torres was facing felony charges stemming from a stabbing incident that occurred in the city of Barron, WI on October 31, 2019.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Torres, on October 31, 2019, shortly after 5:30p Barron County dispatch received a report of a stabbing incident at Anderson Park in Barron, WI.

Officers made contact with an 18-year-old male and his father who had both sustained stab wounds. Witnesses at the scene of the incident told law enforcement that Torres had been seen at the park with an underage female, and an argument ensued, which escalated into the stabbing incident, according to the criminal complaint. When Tores was taken into custody he told officers that he had stabbed two people.

Online circuit court records show that at a hearing on March 8, 2021, the Court ordered Torres to serve one year in county jail followed by 3 years of probation on his conviction of Class G Felony 2nd-Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety. His remaining charges of Class H Felony Aggravated Battery-Intend Bodily Harm, Class D Felony Aggravated Battery, and Class H Felony Bail Jumping were dismissed but read in at a hearing in December 2020.

Conditions of probation will require Torres to successfully complete any and all evaluations, counseling, treatment, and follow-up ordered by his probation agent. Torres will be prohibited from possessing any dangerous weapons or having any contact with the victims in the case.

At a previous hearing in August 2020, Torres entered a plea of guilty to charges filed against him in two additional criminal cases filed against him in Barron County Circuit Court. Those charges included Class I Felony Exposing Genitals/Pubic Area/Intimate Parts to a Child; Misdemeanor Sexual Contact with Child Age 15, Actor Under 19; and Misdemeanor 4th Degree Sexual Assault (reduced from a charge of Class C Felony 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of Child). A charge of Class H Felony Bail Jumping was dismissed but read in.

For those convictions, Torres received a sentence of 3 years of probation with 9 months of jail imposed and stayed. The Court also ordered Torres to successfully complete sex offender assessment; follow through with any recommendations; and complete evaluations, counseling, treatment, and follow-up as recommended by his probation agent.
