CHICAGO — A Cook County corrections employee was being held on $50,000 bond after authorities say he sexually assaulted a teenage girl in Berkeley.
Daniel Robinson, 39, of Cary, was charged Saturday with unlawful restraint and criminal sexual abuse. He appeared in bond court Sunday.
Assistant State's Attorney Oscar Garcia says Robinson met a girl online and told her he worked as a police officer.
Robinson's employment status is pending the outcome of an investigation by the Office of Professional review, according to Ben Breit, spokesman for the Cook County Sheriff's Office. He had worked for Cook County for about 15 years and was stationed at the Cook County Jail in Chicago.
Robinson was also "de-deputized" following the arrest, Breit said. That means he had to turn in his gun.
It wasn't immediately clear if he has a lawyer and his telephone was disconnected.
