A date for judgment and sentencing has now been set for a Tyrone, Okla., teacher following her bench trial Tuesday.

Court records indicate Claire Torres entered blind pleas of guilty to five counts of rape in the second degree and 20 counts of indecent exposure at her August 2016 arraignment.

A pre-sentence investigation has been ordered, and the matter has been set for judgment and sentencing at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 15 in Texas County, Oklahoma, District Court.

In July 2016, Torres had waived her right to a preliminary hearing before being arraigned on five counts of rape in the second degree and 25 counts of indecent exposure.

Torres, a Liberal resident, was initially arrested on five counts of rape in the second degree and 22 counts of indecent exposure, but in April 2016, Texas County District Attorney Mike Boring said there were then 25 counts of indecent exposure.

The court records indicate that Torres pleaded guilty to 20 of those counts, along with the five for rape in the second degree at the arraignment.
