ST. PETERSBURG, Florida. – Authorities say a Florida lawyer who used his position to gain access to a women’s prison, and the film itself to have sex with a female prisoner.
A Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office news release says the 54-year-old Andrew Spark was Sunday arrested and accused of recruiting for prostitution and other counts.
Detectives began the investigation of Spark last month after a tip that he was soliciting sex with female inmates at the Pinellas County Jail.
The release says Spark had sex with a 28-year-old inmate at least six times since June her arrest on drug charges. Spark has never represented the woman, but the researchers say that he began to pay her for sex about three years ago.
Detectives try to determine whether Spark is engaged in similar activity in other prisons.
Spark is free on $5,300 bond. He had no answer to an e-mail seeking comment.
