Jail fight may lead to prison
A Sacramento man’s sentencing for breaking a fellow inmate’s nose has been delayed until next month.
Johnathan Torres, 25, entered a guilty plea to battery by a prisoner and is facing up to an additional six years in prison.
He’s already scheduled to be transferred from the Douglas County Jail to the Nevada Department of Corrections on a 28-72-month sentence for trafficking.
He was waiting for his transfer when the fight erupted on March 30.
He was sentenced on the trafficking charge on May 4.
It has been 13 months since Torres was arrested on May 22, 2015. He got out of jail shortly afterwards and was staying in a home in the Gardnerville Ranchos. That’s when his young son got out of the house and was the subject of a reverse 911 call.
He has been in custody since February when he was arrested for a bail violation.
■ An 18-year-old man admitted charges of felony theft and gross misdemeanor statutory sexual seduction on Monday.
Gardnerville resident Dallas Patrick Clark faces a maximum of 1-5 years in prison on the felony and up to 364 days in jail on the gross misdemeanor.
Under a plea agreement, prosecutors won’t seek prison time in the felony. Prosecutors are free to argue in the gross misdemeanor.
Clark was found naked in the back seat of a vehicle with a 15-year-old runaway. Because he and the girl are close in age, he will not have to register as a sex offender or undergo lifetime supervision.
He must pass an assessment to see if he is at risk to reoffend in order to receive probation on the seduction charge, attorney Kris Brown said.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 15.
