Torres-Acevedo gets six years

BATAVIA — A Batavia man who triggered an Amber Alert after he took a 14-year-old girl across state lines was sentenced to a state prison term Wednesday morning in Genesee County Court.

Guillermo Torres-Acevedo, 23, was sentenced to six years in state prison with 10 years of post-release supervision.

That was the maximum under the terms of a plea agreement when Torres-Acevedo pleaded guilty in December to second-degree rape.

Torres-Acevedo was sentenced in May on federal charges to seven years in federal prison for enticing a minor to travel to engage in sexual activity.

Tuesday, Judge Charles Zambito ordered that Torres-Acevedo serve three of the six years consecutive with the federal sentence.

Torres-Acevedo was arrested by state police on rape charges in November 2018. A day after his arrest, he picked the girl up from Byron-Bergen High School and left the state in a stolen truck.

That triggered an Amber Alert. Both were found later that night in a parking lot at a Walmart in Mansfield, Pa. after police were alerted by a cell phone ping from the girl’s phone.

Torres-Acevedo was later indicted on rape, kidnapping and sexual assault charges, most of which were dismissed as part of the plea deal.
