Wednesday, July 14, 2010— Bond was set at $10,000 today for a Cook County Sheriff’s Deputy who is charged with battery causing bodily harm and official misconduct, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced Wednesday.

Rafael MunozRafael Munoz, 34, of Norridge, was arrested Tuesday as a result of an investigation by the Cook County Sheriff’s Office of Professional Review.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. on July 8 while Munoz was working at the lock-up area of the Cook County Circuit Courthouse in Maywood. Munoz was observed approaching a handcuffed, arrested man in a holding cell, then allegedly using excessive force against him. The man was awaiting a bond hearing later that day for an earlier arrest.

Munoz has been a courthouse deputy since 2006. He will be de-deputized while awaiting trial and the internal investigation remains ongoing.
