The probation officer for the teen charged with sexually assaulting a pregnant Chicago State student and forcing her into a car trunk has been suspended.
The person charged in that crime, 17-year-old Aaron Parks, was on home confinement with electronic monitoring at the time after being charged as a juvenile in July of carjacking a woman at gunpoint.
According to a news release by Rose Golden, the Director of Juvenile Probation and Court Services Department for the Circuit Court of Cook County, “a preliminary review of probation department records indicates that electronic monitoring procedures were not followed. The officer responsible for monitoring Mr. Parks has been placed on temporary suspension pending investigation.”
The department says it has initiated a full audit of all electronic monitoring records to see if changes are necessary.
