Former JSO officer enters plea in prostitution case

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A former Jacksonville Sheriff's officer entered a plea to solicitation of a prostitute charges and will spend the next four months on probation. 

While on probation, 49-year-old David Sumlin will also have to do 100 hours of community service.

Sumlin was arrested last month and resigned after eight years at JSO, citing personal reasons.

According to a JSO police report, the JSO Integrity Unit learned in September that Sumlin was paying prostitutes for sex.

Detectives used a prostitute, called a confidential informant in the police report, to record a conversation with Sumlin in which he expressed interest in paying her for sex acts and even haggled with her over her pricing for those acts.

In addition to his current sentence, Sumlin is credited with having spent two days in jail after his arrest, according to the Duval County Clerk of Courts website.
