Tampa Lawyer Accused of Soliciting Sex with Jail Inmates
Pinellas sheriff’s deputies said he filmed himself having sex with inmates of the Pinellas County Jail.
PINELLAS COUNTY – A Tampa lawyer i facing accusations that he had sexual conduct with female inmates of the Pinellas County Jail.
Andrew Spark, 54, of Tampa, was charged with exposure of sexual organs, introduction/possession of contraband into a county detention facility, and soliciting for prostitution. Spark did not speak to deputies when arrested. He has requested an attorney.
The investigation began in November 2017, when deputies from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office received information Spark, was soliciting sex and receiving sexual acts from female inmates at the Pinellas County Jail. The tip stated that Spark would film the sexual acts on his personal tablet in exchange for money that he would put in the inmate’s commissary account.
According to deputies, Spark visited 25-year-old inmate Shauna Boselli on Nov. 25 by misrepresenting himself to the jail as her attorney. Deputies said Spark used his attorney privilege to gain a face-to-face meeting with Boselli in the Pinellas County Jail. Spark is not representing Boselli on her current charges, nor has he ever represented Boselli on any previous charges.
Spark and Boselli had briefly met on previous occasions, before she was in jail, at “porn conventions” in Tampa where Spark requested to make pornography videos with Boselli. Boselli and Spark could not agree on money and the video was not made, deputies said. Boselli last saw Spark about a year ago.
Deputies said Spark bragged to Boselli about meeting with another female inmate earlier that day, and that he was producing a pornographic video named Girls in Jail. Spark offered to put money in Boselli’s commissary account in exchange for her performing oral sex on him. Boselli declined Spark’s offer to engage in a sexual act.
Spark also met with 28-year-old inmate, Antoinette Napolitano, on Nov. 25. According to deputies, Spark first met Napolitano before she was in jail, about three years ago while she was advertising on the Backpage website for prostitution. Napolitano and Spark engaged in sexual activity multiple times during the three years in exchange for money.
Napolitano was arrested June 7 in connection with multiple drug charges. Spark has visited Napolitano 11 times since June using his attorney privilege to gain a face-to-face meeting with Napolitano in the Pinellas County Jail, deputies said. Spark is not representing Napolitano for her current charges nor has he ever represented Napolitano for any previous charges.
Between June and December, deputies said, Spark met privately with Napolitano and had sex with her inside the Pinellas County Jail at least six times. Spark would begin his interview by filming Napolitano in her jail uniform and ask her to narrate sexual fantasies before filming her performing sexual acts.
On Sunday (Dec. 17), deputies received information that Spark was scheduled to arrive at the Pinellas County Jail to meet with Napolitano and film more pornography. Deputies said that they caught Spark in the attorney visitation room with Napolitano as they were about to begin the sexual act. Spark’s penis was fully exposed when detectives entered the room.
Deputies said it is possible that Spark has engaged in the same activity with other female inmates at the Pinellas County Jail and at other jails throughout the Tampa Bay area and Central Florida. Spark may face additional charges as this investigation continues.
On Monday (Dec. 18), Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri held a press conference at the Sheriff’s Administration Building regarding the arrest of Spark. Video of the press conference can be viewed here: youtube.com
