TEXARKANA, AR-- A former Garland County Sheriff's Deputy pleaded guilty to arranging for a minor to travel across state lines to engage in prostitution.


Deputy Neil Parliment, 39, appeared in federal court Monday. At the time of the offense, Parliment was a marine patrol officer with the Garland County Sheriff's office.

According to court documents, in early February 2013, the Little Rock Police Department was contacted by a girl who admitted to police that she had been engaging in prostitution. The teen  resided in Memphis, Tennessee, and admitted to traveling into Arkansas to meet clients. 

She told officers that one client, Parliment, was a police officer in Hot Springs, showing officers several text messages about going to arranged meetings for sex.

She said she first made contact with Parliment in January 201, later meeting him at a Hot Springs hotel. According to reports, Parliament then arranged for her to meet with others to have sex for money.

Parliment was originally arrested on a federal warrant on June 13. Parliment faces the maximum penalties of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. 

This case was investigated by the FBI Denied Innocence Task Force and the Little Rock Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Dustin Roberts is prosecuting the case for the United States.
