FL Deputy Moonlighted as Prostitute Before Attempting to Kill Woman

The Florida deputy arrested for [__attempting to kill an elderly woman__](https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2017/01/24/florida-deputy-befriends-elderly-woman-prays-with-her-then-tries-to-kill-her/) after she reported him for theft was also a male prostitute on his off-time, according to internal affairs investigators.

Sarasota County deputy Frankie Bybee, received more than $100,000 over the years from a woman named Elinor Jarvis in exchange for pleasing her sexually.

The 46-year-old deputy would also “record himself in a sex act in his patrol vehicle while on duty and send the video to her via an app called ‘Tango’ and then she would transfer $500 into his PayPal account,” according to [__ABC Action News.__](http://www.abcactionnews.com/news/region-sarasota-manatee/sheriff-ex-deputy-charged-with-attempted-murder-may-have-moonlighted-as-a-prostitute-while-on-duty)

Jarvis contacted investigators after learning he had been arrested for attempting to kill a 79-year-old woman by entering her home, mounting her and shoving prescription pills down her throat before leaving her car running in her garage with the door open in the hope she would die of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Bybee was trying to make it look like a suicide.

But Marcia Sohl survived the encounter, leading to his arrest and his termination from the sheriff’s office, where he had worked for 18 years, including several times where he had been suspended for disciplinary issues.

Now he is sitting in jail on several felony charges, including attempted murder, forgery, grand theft, burglary of an occupied dwelling and battery on a person 65+ years of age.

Bybee met Sohl in October when she called the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office for help, transporting her to the hospital and praying with her to gain her trust and confidence.

He also agreed to care for her Yorkshire in exchange for $1,000, even texting her a photo of himself with the dog to show that it was safe.

But then he sold the dog on Craig’s List.

He then spent the next few weeks visiting her at her home while on on-duty and off-duty, introducing her to his three children.

But within two months, the woman called the sheriff’s office to report that he had become too controlling.

Sarasota sheriff’s investigators then learned that he wrote checks from the woman’s account to himself and children for $65,000 after the woman denied ever writing them and his fingerprints were found on at least one check.

On December 28, he sent an email to the woman’s doctor from her email address, pretending that she had “suicidal implications,” which led to the woman being involuntary committed for evaluation in a treatment facility, investigators have since revealed.

Although the email was sent from the woman’s account, the IP address originated from his home, according to the [__Bradenton Herald.__](http://www.bradenton.com/news/local/crime/article131291784.html)

Nevertheless, a judge on Tuesday reduced his bail from $900,000 to $250,000 on Tuesday. And Sohl’s dog has since been returned.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
