A former Arapahoe County sheriff who pleaded guilty to trading methamphetamine for sex with a man won't have to undergo a mental health evaluation that's meant for sex offenders.

Patrick Sullivan was sentenced in April to 38 days in jail and two years of probation for possession of methamphetamine and solicitation for prostitution.

A probation officer sought the mental health evaluation for Sullivan after accusations he violated terms of his probation.

Probation officer Hallie Miller testified Tuesday that Sullivan has been "manipulative" and dishonest in missing drug therapy and drug tests and has tested positive for alcohol.

Miller said she became concerned when he briefly got a new younger roommate.

A judge said Tuesday he didn't have enough evidence of wrongdoing to order the evaluation.
