Virginia mayor arrested for allegedly offering meth for group sex with men

Fairfax Mayor Richard "Scott" Silverthorne has been arrested.

The mayor of Fairfax City in Virginia was arrested for allegedly offering methamphetamine in exchange for group sexual encounters with men.

Richard ‘Scott’ Silverthorne, 50, was among those arrested on Thursday (4 August) during a sting operation involving undercover detectives, according to The Washington Post.

‘We were provided with information from a citizen that the mayor was involved with a web site,’ Captain Jack Hardin, commander of the Fairfax County organized crime unit, tells The Post.

‘It was alleged he was exchanging meth for sex.’ Police say an undercover detective made a profile on the website that Silverthorne to replied to two days later, according to police.

Text messages were exchanged during which Silverthorne allegedly said he could ‘provide meth’ if the detective could provide a hotel room.

The mayor was released from jail shortly after his arrest on charges of meth distribution and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Neither he or his attorney had any comment.

Silverstone’s arrest comes during a particularly bad period in his life during which he has battled neck cancer, lost his job and his house and filed for federal bankruptcy protection.
