The ex-sheriff in the middle of a sex-for-meth scandal was charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor.
Former Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan has been charged with distribution of a controlled substance, attempt to influence a public servant, possession of methamphetamine, and prostitution.
Sources familiar with the case say that the ex-sheriff may also later be charged with assaulting and taking advantage of an at-risk adult. An at-risk adult is defined as anyone elderly or anyone who is physically or mentally disabled.
Records show Sullivan had lived with a 34-year-old man for whom he had power of attorney, William Hadley. Sullivan had access to Hadley's Social Security checks, which Hadley received for a disability.
Dillon Grilley, who lived with Hadley, called police on Sept. 20 to report that Sullivan was coming to the house regularly with drugs and trying to lure his roommates, who are recovering addicts, back into drugs.
"He had power of attorney for one of them and he was talking about (being) a guardian for all of them, which was a scary thought," Grilley said.
