Winnipeggers warned about sex-offender's release

  • Print

Winnipeg police are warning about the upcoming release of a convicted sex offender who is considered at risk to reoffend in a sexual manner.

Timothy Torres, 29, will be released from Headingley Correctional Institution on Tuesday after serving a 16-month sentence for three counts of breach of a prohibition order in relation to children.

Torres will be subject to a probation order, which expires June 2, 2017. He is expected to live in Winnipeg after his release.

Torres was convicted of sexual assault on an 11-year-old girl in 2007. In August 2009, he was handed a seven-year sentence for the crime. Court heard at the time he suffered from "significant" psychological issues.

He was released in 2012, only to be busted in April of that year after approaching an undercover officer posing as a sex-trade worker. He was jailed and released again in June 2013, however he was again returned to custody after police saw him in several parks, a contravention of the conditions of his release.

After he's released, Torres will be on three years of supervised probation. The probation has 17 conditions, including: a nightly curfew, abstaining from drugs and alcohol, reporting any relationships, not being alone with any female under age 18, no access to computers, no access to pornography, and schools, playgrounds and parks are totally off limits.

Though he has participated in some sex offender programming, Torres is still considered at moderate to high risk to reoffend in a sexual manner against young females, police said in a news release.

Torres is described as an Asian man, about 5-5 and weighing 165 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information regarding Torres can call the Manitoba Integrated High Risk Sex Offender Unit at 204-984-1888, the Winnipeg Police Service at 204-986-2222 or Manitoba Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477 or toll free at 1-800-222-8477.
