UPDATE: A Garland County Sheriff’s deputy is arrested and being held for the U.S. Marshals.

Neil Parliment was arrested for engaging in prostitution, according to Conner Eldridge, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, and Randall C. Coleman, FBI Special Agent in Charge said . A release from Eldridge’s office said Parliment, a marine patrol officer, enticed an individual to engage in the criminal act.
“The charge against the officer in this case-involving enticing a person across state lines for prostitution-is a serious one that our task force is committed to aggressively investigating,” Coleman said.

The complaint against Parliment states that from January to June of 2013, he arranged for and facilitated the travel of a prostitute working out of Memphis to come to Hot Springs for the purposes of exchanging sexual activity for money. Over the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Parliment had not only engaged the services of the prostitute himself but also facilitated meetings and introductions between the prostitute and others for sexual activity.

If convicted, Parliment faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

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

    He is not married, can’t keep from beating his women up long enough to keep a relationship going. Pay attention to the fact that the recent arrest in Piney of a guy who had been arrested for items used for manufacture of meth, was Parliments first cousin. and neighbor!

      C’mon Danny! He is not guilty by ‘association’ and ‘relation’ to someone possibly involved in making meth. He is guilty (or innocent) of the charges for which he was arrested….nothing more or nothing less. This is still America and we have a little thing called ‘due process’.

    Hot Springs Ark. has a very corrupt and racist police dept. They are known for charging people with felonies that did not happen. They are known for harassing people from out of state and anyone who is not white. They are very rude, and are known to plant evidence and verbally threaten and intimidate and beat people who are not white. I lived there for awhile and I know for a fact the corruption goes all the way to the judge.

      I feel you on this Nathon the Hot Springs Police Department is very racist. One day they are going have to stand for judgment. I notice when black ppl get killed they can never solve the murders but when White ppl get killed they found the murders the next day.
