Gazette Premium Content Ex-Colorado sheriff who failed drug tests in court

Associated Press Published: May 15, 2014

DENVER — A judge is expected to decide whether to revoke probation for a former Arapahoe County sheriff convicted in a meth-for-sex case after authorities said he tested positive for drugs and alcohol.

Patrick Sullivan is due in court Thursday to answer to charges that he violated probation by failing multiple drug tests.

The 71-year-old was sentenced in 2012 to 38 days in jail and placed on two years' probation after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine and soliciting for prostitution. Court documents say he tested positive for meth three times between September and March and for alcohol four times between April 2012 and August.

The documents also say he left the state without permission three times this year.

A judge in March extended Sullivan's probation after he failed a urine test.
