Kendall County jail employee charged with having sex with inmate

YORKVILLE, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A Kendall County Sheriff's deputy has been put on unpaid leave after being charged with having sex with a female jail inmate.

According to Kendall County court records, Timothy Brennan, 41, of Channahon, was working in the sheriff's correction division when he had ongoing sexual contact with a female inmate from Nov. 25 to Dec. 6 of last year.

Court records show the inmate was in the custody of the Kendall County Jail when the sexual misconduct occurred, the Beacon-News is reporting.

Sheriff Richard Randall said Brennan is on unpaid administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

"I take my responsibility very seriously to not only house inmates securely, but also to provide for their safety," Randall said in a statement.

"While all individuals charged with a crime have a right to due process under the law, I will not tolerate unlawful or unethical conduct by any employee of the Kendall County Sheriff's Office."

The department cooperated with Illinois State Police to conduct the investigation after allegations that Brennan had engaged in sexual contact with the inmate were brought to light. Police do not believe the contact involved the use or threat of force.

"Both Illinois law and Sheriff's Office policy clearly prohibit the alleged conduct and our employees know this," Randall said.

Brennan was charged with custodial sexual misconduct, a Class 3 felony, and bond was set at $40,000, court records show. His next court hearing is set for Monday.
