A lawyer who was accused of soliciting a sexual act from an inmate in Pinellas County is now accused of doing the same thing in Hillsborough County, according to officials.
Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies have obtained a warrant for Andrew Spark, 57, on charges of introducing/possessing contraband into a detention facility and soliciting prostitution.
Spark turned himself into the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Orient Road Jail Friday night around 8:15 p.m.
According to an affidavit, on Oct. 13, Spark went to the Falkenburg Road Jail to speak with an inmate, supposedly for official business. Inside the secure room, however, Spark engaged with a sex act with the inmate and recorded it on a computer tablet.
A review of inmate calls shows Spark and the inmate had spoken the day before, and $10 had been deposited into the inmate's account, deputies said.
This week, a Pinellas County affidavit said Spark visited the Pinellas County Jail with a female inmate offered to give the inmate money in exchange for sexual favors, according to the affidavit.
Spark also entered the jail with his iPad without telling officials. Sheriff's deputies said the device was used “to record a sexual act with the female inmate.”
Anyone with any information on Spark is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200 or anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Andrew Spark and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online or send a mobile tip using our P3 Tips Mobile application, which is a free download for iPhones, iPads and Droids.
