Ex Colo. sheriff accused of offering meth for sexFormer Colorado sheriff accused of offering meth for sex held in jail named for him
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) ' A well-respected former Colorado sheriff is being held on a half-million-dollar bond in the jail named for him, suspected of offering methamphetamine in exchange for sex.
Arapahoe County chief judge William Sylvester doubled the bond for the county's former sheriff, Patrick Sullivan, on Wednesday. He also ordered Sullivan not to try to contact anyone else who may be involved in the case.
Sullivan's attorney protested the increase because no charges have been filed yet.
Sullivan appeared at the court hearing dressed in an orange jail uniform. The 68-year-old walked with a cane but still had handcuffs around his wrists that were attached to a chain around his waist.
