DENVER - A former Arapahoe County sheriff convicted in a meth-for-sex case has violated his probation by testing positive for meth and alcohol.
Court documents released Monday show 71-year-old Patrick Sullivan tested positive for methamphetamine use three times between September and March. The documents say Sullivan tested positive for alcohol use four times between April 2012 and last August.
Sullivan was sentenced in 2012 to 38 days in jail and placed on two years' probation after pleading guilty to felony possession of methamphetamine and soliciting for prostitution.
A judge in March extended Sullivan's probation after he failed a urine test.
The court documents say Sullivan also left the state without permission three times this year.
A hearing on his probation is scheduled for Thursday.
