Pennsylvania teen pulls out own teeth after dad fails to bring him to dentis


Placed by : Dental News Worldwide
03-10-2011

An Easton man claims he “procrastinated” about getting dental care for his teenage son, leading the boy to pull two of his own teeth with pliers because of the pain.
Francisco Torres, 40, of the 900 block of Centre Street, pleaded guilty today to recklessly endangering another person, a misdemeanor.

In court Torres said he receives Social Security benefits for a diagnosis of being mentally disturbed. Defense attorney Tim Prendergast requested a psychological evaluation.
Judge Michael Koury ordered a presentence investigation and set sentencing for Dec. 9.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison. But under state sentencing guidelines, Torres' prior criminal record means a standard sentence could be six to 16 months in prison.

Koury asked Torres about his prior criminal past, but Torres claimed he couldn’t remember his charges and then said there were some he didn’t want to discuss.
Assistant District Attorney Kristine Blake provided the information about Torres’ lengthy criminal record for charges dating back to 1988 in New Jersey.
Torres' record includes aggravated assault of a police officer, for which he pleaded guilty to simple assault; sexual assault, for which he pleaded guilty to the same charge; resisting arrest, making terroristic threats and assaulting a police officer, for which he pleaded guilty to simple assault; and aggravated sexual assault, for which he pleaded guilty to criminal sexual contact, Blake said.

“Does that refresh your recollection, Mr. Torres?” Koury asked.
“Yes,” said Torres, who was wearing a green-and-white plaid shirt and black pants.
The most recent case started with the Northampton County Division of Children, Youth and Families contacting the Easton Police Department.

Torres has seven children, ranging in age from 9 to 24, none of which live with him, he said in court today. His one son, who was 14 at the time, came to live with him in the summer of 2010, Torres said.
On Jan. 16, the boy tried to pull out two teeth with pliers, but was only able to remove tooth fragments, Blake said.

The county eventually took custody of the teen, and in February doctors had to perform emergency surgery to remove the fragments still in his gums, Blake said.
The teenager told authorities he complained to his father for six months about his tooth pain, and then literally took the matter into his own hands because of the pain.
Torres told police he could not take his son to a doctor because he had insurance problems.
In court today, Torres claimed his son mentioned his teeth were bothering him, but that because of his insurance problems he didn’t take his son to the dentist. Torres admitted he “procrastinated” about finding a dentist, and claimed he didn’t know his son had tried to remove his teeth because the boy performed the crude surgery at the son's girlfriend’s house.

“I didn’t act fast enough,” Torres said.
