Lower bond for lawman in Colo. meth-for-sex case

Court News Posted on

A former Colorado lawman once hailed as a hero for a daring rescue of two of his deputies and known for his crusade against youth drug use had his bond reduced Monday on drug charges from $500,000 to $50,000.

Prosecutors have charged Patrick Sullivan, 68, with felony distribution and possession of meth as well as a misdemeanor charge of soliciting prostitution.

Authorities said he offered methamphetamine to a man in exchange for sex in a sting set up last week by a drug task force.

His hearing Monday in Arapahoe County Court was a procedural one in which prosecutors advised a judge what charges they have filed. Citing Sullivan's clean criminal record, the judge lowered Sullivan's bond.

He has been in an isolation cell at the Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility, a suburban Denver jail named in his honor. Standard procedure for current or former law enforcement officials is that they be kept from the general inmate population for their safety.

Sullivan also is charged with attempting to influence a public servant following a Sept. 20 report of an "old man" inside a home that the caller said he wanted to leave.
