Vincent Rios wants out of deal with feds

Posted: Aug 06, 2018 11:22 AM Updated:

He wants out of the deal he previously made with the feds and he's retained new legal counsel moving forward. Attorney Phil Torres now represents drug defendant Vincent Raymond Rios.

Rios recently wrote to the court stating he would've never taken the deal if his previous attorney, Howard Trapp, had been "completely upfront with me about the amount of time the government was going to give me."

Attorney Torres is currently reviewing the case. Rios faces up to 30 years in jail with the plea deal.

Should he withdraw his guilty plea and head to trial, he could be sentenced to life behind bars. Rios was busted with over 18 pounds of the drug "ICE" in the mail.

A return hearing is set for September 27th.
