(STMW) — A Cook County sheriff’s officer charged with attempted sexual assault was ordered held without bail Thursday, according to the sheriff’s office website.
Fernando Rodriguez, 52, was charged with attempted aggravated criminal sexual assault; aggravated unlawful restraint; and official misconduct — all felony counts, Chicago Police said.
The circumstances surrounding his arrest were not available.
Rodriguez was a deputy sheriff in the Civil Process unit and was not on duty at the time of the incident, said Sophia Ansari, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office. He has been de-deputized, and the sheriff’s office has launched a disciplinary investigation, Ansari said.
The next court date for Rodriguez, who lives in River Grove, was not available.
