U.S. Army Sergeant Alexis Kirk Torres was arrested on Monday for allegedly soliciting underage children to engage in a commercial sex act. Torres, 26, was caught in an FBI sting operation that purportedly led him to Davie in Broward County with candy, cash, lubricant and condoms that he intended to use on two young girls, aged 12 and 14.
Torres was not aware that the meeting he was going to was a sting operation and the man he was communicating with was actually an undercover federal agent. He is to remain in jail until a bond hearing is held to decide if he is eligible for bond. News sources did not specify an attorney for Torres.
