A former DuPage County probation officer has pleaded guilty to having inappropriate sexual contact with one of his probationers.
Christian Nunez, 33, of Naperville, entered a guilty plea Thursday to one count of official misconduct and one count of custodial sexual misconduct, the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office said in a statement.
Both charges are punishable by up to five years in prison.
Nunez served as a woman’s probation officer after her release from the DuPage County Jail in May 2017, prosecutors said. During her probation, he sent her nude photos of himself and requested that she send nude photos to him.
On March 11, Nunez went to her home and told her to perform oral sex on him, which she did, prosectors said. The woman alerted officials at the Lombard Police Department and Nunez was subsequently charged.
“As a government official, Christian Nunez took advantage of his position and of his victim simply to satisfy his own sexual desires,” State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said.
Nunez’s bail was set to $100,000 during a hearing in May 2018. His pre-sentence court date was scheduled for Aug. 1.
