DALLAS – Emmanuel Garcia Tenorio, 40, was sentenced today in Polk County Circuit Court to prison for a second time by Judge Monte S. Campbell after being found guilty in a retrial of four counts of sex abuse involving a child under the age of ten. Judge Campbell sentenced Tenorio to 375 months in prison with a lifetime term of Post-Prison Supervision.
Tenorio’s first trial was held in 2013 and involved two counts of Sex Abuse in the First Degree and two Counts of Unlawful Sexual Penetration. Tenorio successfully appealed those verdicts under the Supreme Court’s recent decisions striking down non-unanimous jury verdicts.
In Tenorio’s latest trial, the jury unanimously convicted him again on all four counts. Ternorio has remained in prison since 2013. The case was prosecuted by Polk County District Attorney Aaron Felton and investigated by the Dallas Police Department.
