Former Probation Officer Pleads Guilty to Sexual Misconduct

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced today that a former DuPage County Probation Officer has entered a plea of guilty to having inappropriate sexual contact with a female probationer whose case he was monitoring. Christian Nunez, 33 (d.o.b. 8/31/1985) of Naperville, appeared in court this morning where he entered a plea of guilty to one count of Official Misconduct and one count of Custodial Sexual Misconduct. Both charges are a Class 3 Felony punishable by up to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Judge John Kinsella accepted Nunez’s guilty plea.   

In May 2017, Nunez began serving as the victim’s probation officer after her release from the County Jail. During her probation, Nunez began contacting the victim from his personal cellular telephone. On several occasions, Nunez sent naked photographs of himself to the woman and requested that she send naked photos and videos of herself. On March 11, 2018, Nunez went to the woman’s home and instructed her to perform oral sex on him, which she did. Following the encounter, the woman alerted the Lombard Police Department who conducted an investigation into the matter. On May 25, 2018, Nunez appeared in Bond Court where bond was set at $100,000 with 10 % to apply. On June 11, 2018, Nunez’s bond was reduced to $75,000 with 10% to apply. The same day he posted the necessary 10%, or $7,500 and was released from custody. 

“As a government official, Christian Nunez took advantage of his position and of his victim simply to satisfy his own sexual desires,” Berlin said. “What he did is beyond disgusting and thanks to the outstanding work of the Lombard Police Department, he will be held accountable. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Lee Roupas for his efforts on this case that led to today’s guilty plea.”

Nunez’s next court appearance is scheduled for August 1, 2019 for return of the Pre-sentence Report.
