HUTCHINSON, Kan. — One of three people involved in the beating of a Hutchinson woman was sentenced Friday to four years in prison.
Pleasure Torres was arrested with Demetrius Vansyckle and Melissa McGuire. Torres was charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault.
All three are accused of beating a female victim repeatedly after breaking into a home on West 14th on June 6.
The sentence will run consecutively to a case from 2016 where she threatened her boyfriend with a knife after a domestic dispute. The incident occurred on Sept. 26, 2016. She was given a 22-month sentence in that case.
Judge Tim Chambers noted that she should be in a mental facility because of her mental illness, but ordered the sentence in prison served.
Vansyckle and McGuire are both on community corrections for their part in the battery and burglary case.
