Former Boys & Girls Club Director To Serve Prison Time


A 28-year-old Firebaugh man will serve 12 years and seven months in prison, for enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity.

According to a statement by the United States Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of California, evidence presented at a February 2016 trial shows that Joan Martin Torres, who was the director of the Boys and Girls Club in Firebaugh, was supervising a 14-year-old boy who came to the Boys and Girls club after school, to complete 120 hours of community service.

Torres, according to the statement, sent the boy messages over Social Media that offered to shortcut his community service hours requirement, if the boy would agree to sexual act with Torres.

The boy, according to the statement, reported the messages to law enforcement.
