A lawyer in Florida has been disbarred following revelations that he was filming himself having sex with jail inmates for a pornographic film he was putting together.
Andrew Spark, 58, allegedly solicited sex from incarcerated women and promised to put money on their books as compensation if they allowed him to use the footage of their sexual encounters for his film project “Girls in Jail.”
The state’s Supreme Court ruled that Spark “abused” his position “for his own prurient and/or financial interests.” According to the New York Daily News, “The rooms where Spark chose to meet women for sex were not equipped with recording devices and only had a small window on the door. The aspiring porn star would then film the inmate performing oral sex on him while he blocked the small window by standing against the door.”
Spark was originally arrested back in 2017 and charged with bringing contraband into detention facilities and solicitation of prostitution. He later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years probation back in 2019.
The disgraced lawyer’s disciplinary notice reads:
Andrew Spark, 13201 Roosevelt Ave., PMB 818085, Flushing, N.Y., disbarred retroactive to July 15, 2019, when he was suspended because of a felony conviction, following a. Jan. 21 court order. (Admitted to practice: 1991) Spark abused his privilege to practice law and used his law license to engage in deception with the intent to access private rooms provided to attorneys in two separate jail facilities for the purpose of soliciting prostitution. Spark video recorded these encounters with the goal of creating an adult pornographic film for his own prurient and/or financial interest. He pleaded guilty to three separate charges and was sentenced in each case to probation. (Case No: SC19-1163)
