Arrested April 4, 1980, Carlos Alberto Torres was convicted of seditious conspiracy and related charges, along with ten others, and sentenced to 78 years in prison. Through out his imprisonment he experienced both physical and mental torture at the hands of the United States prison system. Carlos Alberto Torres was one of the longest held Puerto Rican Political Prisoners in the history of Puerto Rico. Imprisoned for his belief in Puerto Rican Independence, he was paroled July 26, 2010, after serving more than 30 years in prison.
