CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A former Colorado sheriff known for his crusade against youth drug use has pleaded guilty to charges of trading methamphetamine for sex.

Patrick Sullivan pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony possession of methamphetamine and a misdemeanor count of solicitation for prostitution. He was the sheriff in Arapahoe County from 1984 until 2002.

The 69-year-old was arrested after a sting operation last year in which investigators say he offered methamphetamine to a man in exchange for sex. He was held in custody in a jail that was named after him.

Prosecutors say they want Sullivan to serve time behind bars, while defense attorneys are seeking probation.
