UPDATE

MULBERRY, Fla. A Polk County mayor accused of having sex with a teenage boy was out of jail Sunday night.

Gov. Charlie Crist suspended Julian Mullis, the mayor of Mulberry. He bonded out of jail this weekend.

Investigators said the mayor met a 17-year-old boy at a Lakeland bar last week, thinking he was 21 years old.

However, police said the law is clear and it is a criminal offense to have sex with a minor.

The mayor’s roommate seemed taken back by the arrest.

“To have sex in the U.S., do I need to say, ‘Before we do this, can I see your ID?'” Jared Gui said. “That’s like buying cigarettes or alcohol.”

It isn’t clear who will take over Mulberry’s duties as mayor.
