Batavia man who pleaded guilty to enticement sentenced to 84 months in prison

A Genesee County man who pleaded guilty to enticing a 14-year-old to travel with him for the purpose of engaging in criminal sexual activity has been sentenced to 84 months in prison and 10 years of supervision upon his release by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci Jr.

According to prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney's Office, 23-year-old Guillermo Torres-Acevedo, of Batavia, had sexual relations with the minor Nov. 25, 2018.

Torres-Acevedo was arrested the following day for rape, among other charges.

After his arrest, Torres-Acevedo persuaded the underage victim to travel with him out of state to continue their relationship.

On Nov. 29, 2018, Torres-Acevedo picked the girl up from school in Genesee County and drove her to Pennsylvania, where they had sexual intercourse. Under Pennsylvania law, that constituted the crime of statutory sexual assault.
