TAMPA — A former Pinellas-Pasco prosecutor was sentenced to three years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to trafficking in oxycodone pills.
Aaron Slavin, 34, who worked for the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office before opening a private practice in Largo, admitted accepting more than 200 oxycodone pills as payment for legal services in 2010. His supposed client turned out to be a police informer.
Slavin's wife, Eryn, also 34, was charged with possession of illegal drugs. She was allowed to avoid prosecution by entering a pretrial diversion program.
The case was heard by Hillsborough Circuit Judge Gregory Holder because of Slavin's long connection to the court system in Pinellas County.
