The Seattle Times reported that Deputy Darrion Keith Holiwell, 49, pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree promoting prostitution, one count of first-degree theft and one count of violating a drug law.
King County Superior Court Judge Bruce Heller called him a disgrace to his profession as he imposed the sentence, which prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to as part of a plea deal.
Investigators said Holiwell encouraged his estranged wife, a former stripper, to work as an escort, and that he kept much of her earnings. He was also accused of stealing department ammunition and illegally delivering testosterone.
