HOT SPRINGS, AR --  Neil Parliment, 39, a former Garland County Sheriff's Deputy was sentenced to 45 months in prison and five years of supervised release for tempting an individual to engage in prostitution.

At the time of the offense, Parliment was a marine patrol officer with the Garland County Sheriff’s Office.

“Mr. Parliment abused his position of public trust to engage in illegal activities involving prostitution," United States Attorney Connor Eldridge said in a release. "We remain dedicated to holding those accountable who use similar positions to perpetrate crime.”

According to documents that were filed in the case from January to June of 2013, Parliment arranged for and helped with the travel of a prostitute working out of Memphis to come to Hot Springs for the purposes of exchanging sexual activity for money.

Over the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Parliment had not only engaged in activity with the prostitute himself, but also facilitated meetings and introductions between the prostitute and others for sexual activity.

Parliment pleaded guilty to the offense on July 29, 2013.

FBI Denied Innocence Task Force investigated this case.
