Torres is classified as a Level 3 offender, an offender with the highest likelihood of reoffending.

There won’t be a public meeting, because there has been a prior meeting in reference to Torres, according to the Police Department.

Torres has reportedly lived in the area off and on for several years. He has been incarcerated and is being released again.

A notification fact sheet states Torres has a history of sexual contact with female victims ages 12 to 15. He was known to his victims.

Albert Lea Police Department Detective Frank Kohl said previously Torres had at least three victims, but there were likely others who were never charged or who never came forward to authorities.

Freeborn County District Court documents state Torres served time in prison for one count of fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct with a 13-year-old girl and one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a 12-year-old girl. Both instances reportedly took place at hotels in Albert Lea in 2010, and Torres was already on probation at the time the incidents occurred.
