A Florida lawyer has found himself on the wrong side of the legal system after he was accused of exposing himself to and soliciting sexual favors from a female inmate at the county jail â while recording the salacious encounters on his iPad.
Andrew Spark, a 54-year-old attorney with Spark Law Group in Pinellas County, is facing charges of soliciting for prostitution, exposure of sexual organs and possession of contraband in a county detention facility, ABC Action News reported.
The charges stem from repeated visits Spark made to the Pinellas County Jail, where he used his attorney visitation rights to take inmates to private rooms and ask them to perform sex acts with them in exchange for money deposited into their jail accounts. Spark recorded the encounters under the pretense that he was producing pornographic videos.
One of these inmates was Shanna Boselli, who along with her husband was convicted on child porn charges. Spark used his attorney privileges to secretly meet with Boselli even though he never represented her. Another inmate, Antoinette Rose Napolitano, met with Spark several times over the last several years for sex, also under the guise of conducting attorney-client meetings.
When deputies learned of Sparkâs scheme, they wired the âprivateâ room for sound and video in the hopes of catching the crooked lawyer in the act. Sure enough, when Spark exposed himself in preparation for sex, cops busted into the room and took him into custody.
Now, investigators are trying to determine which other inmates Spark has met for sex â and whether he carried out the same scheme at other detention facilities across the Tampa Bay area and Central Florida. Additional charges could surface if that turns out to be the case.
