LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Arthur Torrez has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for seriously injuring a child in 2017. He will not be eligible for parole until he serves half his sentence.
Torrez was found guilty of aggravated assault of a family member with a deadly weapon.
Police say he shook the child and caused her to strike a hard surface.
Police records show Torrez called 911 in February of 2017, reporting the child was unresponsive.
Paramedics originally thought the child was suffering a medical issue, but doctors at the hospital reported suspicious injuries.
Officers arrested Torrez in July of 2020, but grand jurors did not indict him for a crime until just a few weeks ago.
