Sheriff charged in prostitution sting

By Patrick Wilson

The No. 2 man in the Sheriff’s Office has been charged in a police prostitution sting.


Col. Norman Hughey, who has been with the office for 34 years, was placed on paid personal leave, according to a news release from Sheriff Bob McCabe.

He said he would wait until the case went through court before making a decision on Hughey’s employment status.

City police made prostitution arrests Friday during an undercover operation at a hotel in the 6200 block of Northampton Blvd., police Capt. Keith Torian said.

Hughey declined to comment when reached by phone Monday afternoon.

As chief deputy, Hughey has been in charge of daily operations of the Sheriff’s Office. According to the office website, he was named major in charge of corrections in 2002, chief of operations in 2006 and chief deputy in 2011.

The Norfolk Police Vice and Narcotics Unit has been aggressive about arresting prostitutes and conducting stings in the city’s hotels.

Those operations have been publicized by the police and news media. In some cases, police have posted fake ads on a website and men have shown up at the hotel room to solicit a woman they believed was a prostitute. If a deal were made to exchange money for sex, police temporarily detained the men and charged them with misdemeanors.

In 2011, a Norfolk police sergeant was arrested in such a sting by Virginia Beach police. In 2012, a Beach police sergeant was arrested in a sting by Chesapeake police.
