Patrick Sullivan, Arapahoe County Meth-For-Sex Sheriff, Admits To Using Date Rape Drugs, May Have Had Sex With Teenage Boys

Less than a month after former Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan pleaded guilty to charges of trading methamphetamine for sex, a new video has surfaced of Sullivan's interrogation.

The video, dated November 29, 2011, raises new questions about Sullivan's illegal activities. At one point in the video Sullivan admits to investigators (who were also his former employees) he "may very well have" had sex with underage boys. According to CBS4, he also admits having used a date rape drug to facilitate sexual encounters.


Despite never fully admitting he may have had sex with a minor, at one point in the conversation investigators question him about having sex with a 13-year-old boy in Breckenridge. They also interrogate him about time he spent working security at the Cherry Creek School District and may have spied on boys in the locker room.

Sullivan asks, “Two boys having sex in a locker room?” Investigators say, “And you said, ‘Let me join in and I won’t tell.’ “ Sullivan says, “Okay.” The investigator asks, “Is that possible?” Sullivan answers, “That’s possible.”

A second video released earlier in April shows the 69-year-old former "Sheriff of the Year" being arrested in the bedroom of a male informant that he was planning to trade meth with in exchange for having sex with him. That video was filmed just before the video of the interrogation.

Sullivan was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years probation on in early April after the former sheriff agreed to plead guilty to felony drug possession and a misdemeanor soliciting prostitution charge, CBS4 reports.

He served 17 days of the sentence after being released early on "good time served," which The Denver Post reports is available to all inmates. As part of the plea deal, two other charges were dropped. Sullivan also had to pay a fine of $1,100.
