Victim: Justice Has Now Been Served

A Springfield man was sentenced  Tuesday in Hampden Superior Court to 18 to 20 years in prison for  assaulting the owner of a Chicopee bar.  

Wilmer Torres had pleaded  guilty to armed assault with intent to murder and six other charges from  the July 2015 break-in and robbery at Chief's Lounge on Chicopee  Street.  

Authorities say he, along with another suspect, Jose  Villegas-Rodriguez, hit the bar owner with metal pipes after the bar was  closed. 

Villegas-Rodriguez, of Holyoke, still has a pending case in the  matter.
