Former sheriff arrested for trading sex for meth….

Former Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan who is married was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of trying to trade drugs to a man for sex, as investigators monitored the deal.

Drug task-force officers were “visually monitoring” the deal when the 68-year-old former national Sheriff of the Year delivered methamphetamine to an Aurora home and sought sex in return, said current Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson.

“This shows that no one is above the law, particularly a current or a former peace officer,” Robinson said.

Robinson said Sullivan had an ongoing relationship with the man as well as other men he had a history of bonding out of jails in the metro region.

A call left at his family home in Littleton on Tuesday night was not returned. Sullivan’s adult daughter told TV reporters outside her parents’ home that the family was in disbelief and asked for privacy.
