Report alleges probation violations by ex-sheriff


CENTENNIAL | Court documents say former Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan has violated terms of his probation after pleading guilty in a case where he was accused of trading methamphetamine for sex with a man.

Sullivan was sentenced in April to 38 days in jail and two years of probation for possession of methamphetamine and solicitation for prostitution.

KUSA-TV in Denver reports ( that according to court documents filed in July, Sullivan’s probation officer said the former sheriff was “soliciting” someone whom Sullivan had once paid. The officer’s report didn’t say what Sullivan bought. The officer says Sullivan has had continued violations and isn’t following court orders.

The officer asked the court to order a mental health evaluation for Sullivan.

KUSA reports a call seeking comment from Sullivan’s attorney was not returned.
