Fall River Man Rapes Local Woman Hours After His Release From Jail

Tiverton Police arrested a 29-year-old Fall River man in the Nov. 2, 2011 rape of a local woman.


Tiverton Police arrested a 29-year-old local man for the rape of a Tiverton woman hours after he was released from prison last November, The Sakonnet Times reports.

Just hours after being released from the Adult Correctional Institute (ACI) last year, Jason M. Torres, 29, of Fall River, allegedly assaulted the woman and violated two no-contact orders she had obtained against him 

According to the Sakonnet Times, the alleged rape occurred on Nov. 2, 2011. Torres was in a Massachusetts prison on unrelated charges until his release on Tuesday, Oct. 9. Tiverton Police charged Torres with sexual assault in the first degree and the two no-contact order violations.

Torres arrived at the victim's home at about 11:15 a.m. on the day of the Nov. 2 and when the victim attempted to call police, he took the phone and assaulted her. Two of the victims young children were in the house.

The victim said she was never advised by ACI that Torres had been released.

Torres is being held in the ACI, reported the Sakonnet Times.

This is so bs, The ACI told the tiverton police he wasn't released yet he was! My kids never answer the door alone letting anyone in, and shame on ACI for not notifying this poor women before something happened, and it did!

It seams like everyone wants to believe the worst to make themselves feel better about themselves? Who's the judge for this very unfortunate situation????????????? NOT US!!!!!!!! Maybe she wanted to set him up? WHO KNOWS?????? There's all kinds of wack jobs out there in this world......... Who's the JUDGE?????? NOT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The bottom line is here, is that dont beleave everything you hear!!! As in all case's theres always 2 sides to the story!!!!
