PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. -- A Tampa attorney has been arrested in Pinellas County after he reportedly exposed himself to and solicited sexual favors from a female inmate. 

Andrew Spark, 54, has been charged with soliciting for prostitution, exposure of sexual organs and possession of contraband in a county detention facility. 

On Sunday, Spark was in the Pinellas County Jail with a female inmate. Spark offered to give the female inmate money on her jail account in exchange for sexual favors, according to the arrest affidavit. 

According to arrest documents, an undercover agent with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office was involved in the incident. The Sheriff's Office has not given any details about the involvement of the undercover agent and has not provided the identity of the inmate. 

Spark reportedly exposed his sexual organs to the same female inmate at the Pinellas County Jail, according to the arrest affidavit. 

Spark was also arrested for reportedly brining his personal iPad into the Pinellas County Jail without advance notice or consent while visiting a female inmate. Deputies say the iPad was used during a crime to record a sexual act with the female inmate. 

Scripps affiliate WFTS-TV has reached out to the accused lawyer. In a text message, he told WFTS "Thank you for reaching out to me this way. I would like to provide more information a little later."
