Man charged in FSU star's dad's death plays at Poker World Serie – Palm Beach Post


Paul Senat, out on bond after firing an AK 47-style rifle through a wall at Sugar Daddy’s Adult Cabaret in April, killing Darryl Rudolph, took home more than $90,000 at the World Series of Poker Tournament on Sunday in Las Vegas.

The 37-year-old Lantana man was released April 26 from the Palm Beach County Jail on a $35,000 surety bond, the day after he was arrested on a manslaughter charge, records show. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge. He last appeared in court June 16 for a case disposition.

During a bond hearing in April, a judge ordered Senat have no contact with Rudolph’s family or with Sugar Daddy’s. He cannot have weapons. It was not immediately known whether Senat had travel restrictions as a condition of his release.
