Former Denver sheriff charged in meth for sex caseFormer suburban Denver sheriff charged with 3 felonies and 1 misdemeanor in meth for sex case
DENVER (AP) ' Authorities have filed drug and other charges against former Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan, who was once known for his no-nonsense style and a concern about teenage drug use.
Prosecutors on Friday charged the former sheriff with felony distribution, possession of meth as well as misdemeanor charge of soliciting prostitution. He's accused of offering drugs to a man in exchange for sex during a sting Tuesday in suburban Denver.
Sullivan also is charged with attempting to influence a public servant following a Sept. 20 report of an unwanted person at a home.
An incident report says a man at the house reported Sullivan was getting three recovering addicts back into drugs. Sullivan told investigators he was helping them out as part of his work with a drug rehab program.
