Ark. deputy resigns after prostitution allegations

Posted: Updated:

Arkansas authorities say a sheriff's deputy has resigned following allegations that he hired a juvenile teenage runaway as a prostitute.

   Garland County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. James Martin says the agency received Neil Parliment's resignation letter on Thursday.

   A federal complaint alleges that Parliment paid the girl for sex and arranged for her to have sex with others for money. The complaint says the girl ran away from a foster home near Boston.

   Parliment's attorney, Clay Janske, didn't respond to a phone message left after hours on Thursday.

   However, Janske has said his client thought the girl was at least 21. Janske told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that Parliment's involvement with the girl was "not near what that document indicates."
