Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury man was sentenced to 12 years behind bars following his conviction on first-degree assault and related charges.

Jesus Samuel Torres-Gomez, 30, was convicted in a Circuit Court trial on May 15.

According to prosecutors, Torres-Gomez was identified as the suspect in the stabbing of a man on Booth Street following a disagreement over a basketball game on Oct. 6, 2018. The man was treated at Peninsula Regional Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Torres-Gomez was also convicted in a separate trial for separate charges of second-degree assault and reckless endangerment on June 4. Torres-Gomez was found guilty of threatening a woman with a knife on Oct. 10, 2018. In that case, a judge sentenced him to five years in the Department of Corrections on July 29.

Both sentences will run consecutive, for a total of 17 years in the Department of Corrections.
