man being sentenced

Florida investigators have charged a Wellington, Florida man with first-degree murder. They claim that the man introduced the victim to his killer. Bryan Rhodes, 24, went voluntarily to the Greenacres Police Department and shared his side of the story last week, according to police.

His arrest report states that Rhodes served as middle man in a drug deal on July 25 that resulted in the death of Kenneth James Torres, 28. An unnamed suspect told Rhodes he planned to rob Torres of 300 oxycodone pills and give Rhodes 75 pills as payment.

Rhodes did not alert Torres of the plans.

Greenacre police arrived at the 6000 block of Seven Springs Boulevard after Torres was shot outside his vehicle. Torres later died at Delray Medical Center. Rhodes is behind bars on charges of first-degree murder with a firearm, armed robbery with a firearm, and being a principal in the crime.

William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
