Patrick Sullivan was sentenced two years after pleading guilty to plying young men with methamphetamine in exchange for sexual favors. The 71-year-old was once named the nation's top sheriff and won praise for his leadership of the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department in the Denver suburbs.

"He sees himself as above the law," Miller said. Before his arrest, Sullivan was known as an anti-drug crusader with a record so distinguished the county named its jail after him. The National Sheriffs' Association tapped him as its "top sheriff" in 2001, and he continued to command respect even after he resigned the following year to oversee security for a school district.
But his court case revealed a darker picture. He would develop relationships with vulnerable young men, help them find jobs and get out of jail, and then provide them the drug. Unlike other addicts, Sullivan was "on the forefront in the 1990s as one of the most vocal critics of the meth epidemic," said First Assistant Attorney General Robert Shapiro. "He of all people, the first time he tried it, knew it was nothing more than a poison. ... Mr. Sullivan chose this substance for no good reason whatsoever."

Look at this old pervert! He was going after rehabilitated drug addicts trying to get them hooked again, so he could get some. What a disgusting example of an American pig. The old geezer will get what he seeks when he goes to prison I'm sure. To protect and serve?
