Pat Sullivan, disgraced sheriff, violates probation with alcohol, "alarming" behavior

One of 2011's biggest stories was the arrest of ex-Arapahoe County Sheriff Pat Sullivan amid tales of meth for masturbation and gay porn, among other things. In the end, Sullivan received a 38-day wrist slap after pleading guilty to lesser charges. But he's now reportedly violated his probation via behavior outlined in documents on view below.

A so-called "Special Report" by Sullivan's probation officer, Hallie Miller (it's being shared by the Denver Post) notes that Sullivan was placed on 24 months of probation in early April by Judge William Sylvester -- yes, the same jurist overseeing the James Holmes/Aurora theater shooting case. This action followed Sullivan's sentence of 38 days in jail after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine; he also entered a guilty plea in relation to a charge of prostitution solicitation.

Between then and early July, when the report was submitted, Miller maintains that "the probation department has become aware of behaviors of the defendant that are concerning.

Sullivan during one of his court appearances.
"The defendant's behavior around his offense is alarming," the report continues, "in that he was soliciting from an individual that in the past Mr. Sullivan had been his payee. In this transaction, the defendant selected his partner to be someone whom he previously had authority over, indicating issues related to power and control."

No more details are offered about this last paragraph, but the reference implies strongly that Sullivan is involved with someone with whom he had a previous relationship -- one in which money, sex and more may have been intertwined.

The next line is blacked out -- but the sentence after it reveals that "as a sanction, the defendant is currently on SCRAM," an alcohol-monitoring device; the company that makes them is based in Littleton, and its signature products have been worn by the likes of Lindsay Lohan. "However, the defendant's continued violations indicate the defendant chooses not to abide by Court orders," the report continues -- meaning, presumably, that Sullivan had been caught imbibing.

Accompanying the special report is a June 27 letter to Miller from Kevin McGreevy, one of Sullivan's attorneys, "regarding your recent request that Mr. Sullivan participate in a sexual evaluation." McGreevey explains that his attorneys advised him not to submit because "the Court has not ordered him to participate in such an evaluation" and "the law does not require that this evaluation be done," since the meth possession beef and the prostitution-solicitation offense don't require one.

"Further and importantly," McGreevey continues, "Mr. Sullivan was never charged with a sex offense nor did he admit on the record to having committed a sex offense."

McGreevey follows with several statutory citations, after which he writes, "Nothing in any of these sections permits the court's order of a sexual evaluation for someone who made statements about uncharged and unproven allegations of sexual misconduct."

Maybe not, but the documents, including an order from Sylvester telling the various parties to file paperwork in response to the probation officer's report, suggests that the onetime lawman is risking a return to the detention center that formerly bore his name, and where Holmes remains in custody.

Here are the aforementioned reports.

When one considers that Mr. Sullivan was in a position of authority in Littleton and Arapahoe County law enforcement throughout his career, one wonders whether he maintained a double standard for his friends and co-workers with regards to drug use and sexual abuse.  In addition, Mr. Sullivan did not at age 60+ suddenly become a pedophile and drug user. This was a pattern of behavior that must have persisted throughout his adult lifetime.  To assume that this behavior was invisible to his close friends and colleagues strains credulity.  One has to wonder what others close to him knew about this behavior, specifically the current Arapahoe County sheriff, who had a long standing professional connection with Patrick Sullivan and the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department past and present command staffs.

What's with these Colorado Cats?

 

A Pueblo FBI agent has been arrested for investigation of child sexual assault by someone in a position of trust, officials say.

David A. Johnson, 53, of Pueblo West was arrested Sunday at his home and is being held in the Pueblo County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, Sheriff Kirk Taylor said.

Sheriff's investigators began their investigation Jan. 2, Taylor said, and it is continuing, he said.

Johnson was placed in the medical ward of the jail for his safety because he is a law-enforcement officer, Taylor said.

The arrest-warrant affidavit has been sealed in the case.

Special Agent Renee Vonder Haar, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Denver, said Johnson has been placed on administrative leave. She said she couldn't comment further.

Just as I wrote in previous blogs , anyone else would have already been in front of the judge facing a probation violation and a lengthy jail sentence .

Patrick Sullivan was in office long enough to acquire 'dirt' on EVERYONE !

He was the SHERIFF ! Everyone answered to him . You can't tell me he didn't keep a ' special ' file for use in case something like this were to EVER happen .

It would be like going after Carole Chambers .

You'd have better luck taking down Jesus Christ !

The pedophile is UNTOUCHABLE !!!

Time for the Prosecution to bring those additional, uncharged offenses to bear.

so.......This guy personally doesnt make me sick. I am not a cop hater. Him getting away with his actions make me livid. This case, on the other hand, would have probably never happened if the company he undoubtedly kept were not anti-gay. This is a gay man, who would have been ridiculed beyond repair by his people if they had known. So he begins creeping around cheesman park at night, finds meth, figures out it can get his old ass laid.....and BANG....he you go. There will be thousands of more like pat out there until the stigma of homosexuality is removed. This guy was just lucky enough to know the right people.....

Here is the real business of our criminal injustice system:  monitoring the sexual behavior of more and more Coloradans and threatening them with prison for private consensual conduct!

 @charlie_oscar ... notice it's mostly Konservative Christian Repugs who end up being the wide-stance meth-tweaking toe-tappers and child molestors.

 

Go figure ...

 @Juan_Leg Hey man when I shared those court documents with you, i specifically told you that you had to keep silent about what you read. You can get me in big trouble spreading that info.

To Rockiesfever:  Fortunately there aren't thousands of people like Pat being victimized by "the stigma of homosexuality."  He is a pedophile, not the same thing at all as a homosexual and probably belongs to the same category as former Pennsylvania football coach Jerry Sandusky who has been labeled a 'violent sexual predator.' Most homosexuals are decent, law-abiding, gentle people who wouldn't dream of behaving like Sullivan Normalizing homosexuality won't do a thing to protect society from people like the former sheriff. He is a criminal who kept his activities secret because he was breaking the law and didn't want to get caught, not because he was afraid of being ridiculed.

 @RobertChase Sullivan admitted on tape that he engaged in illicit sexual activities with children as young as thirteen and used the date rape drug on a mentally challenged 34 year old.  That doesn't sound like 'private consensual conduct' to me!

 @rockiesfever  ... always the ignoramus, aren't you?

So you claim to be "pro-life" but support the Death Penalty and the Forcible Rape of Retards?

 

Typical Repuglykkkan.

 @OldLady WTF??? Do you know what "pedophile" even means?? although he was arrested for trading meth for sex WITH ADULT MEN....he was not arrested for anything to do with children. I know there was some talk about him sleeping with underage men, but thats probably just people like you assuming. Also, you obviously missed the point of my comment. I was saying that BASED on the stigma that doesnt allow men in his "circles" to be out and proud, he had to resort to this sort of sneaking around. .....I could just imagine what a conversation with you in person would be like ....

 @DonkeyHotay Repudiate society's mania to enforce its mores with the criminal law so that it will become possible to imagine that the UNioted States could become the "land of the free"!
