Vincent Latorre had two of his blackmail convictions overturned in Supreme Court.


Shepparton standover man Vincent Latorre’s jail time has been reduced after the Supreme Court of Victoria Court of Appeals quashed two of his blackmail convictions.

In December 2009 Latorre was jailed for 11-and-a-half years with a non-parole period of eight years and three months, and ordered to repay $120,000 to victims.

He was convicted of three counts of blackmail, extortion, two counts of assault, two counts of making threats to kill, and intentionally damaging property.

Latorre has been resentenced to seven years with a non-parole period of five years.
