Tuesday, August 26, 2014An investigation into the smuggling of contraband into the Cook County Jail has resulted in the arrest of a correctional officer, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.

Daniel MurryDaniel Murry, 39, was taken into custody on Sunday at Division 9 of the jail, where he worked. His arrest followed a lengthy Sheriff’s investigation that found Murry had brought alcohol into that division, a maximum security facility, and provided it to inmates in exchange for money.

The investigation was conducted by Sheriff’s officers who investigate crimes within the jail and the Sheriff’s Office of Professional Review, which is now headed by James Roache, who joined the Sheriff’s Office following a lengthy career with the FBI.

Murry, who had been employed at the Sheriff’s Office for more than nine years, was charged on Monday with bringing contraband into a penal institution by an employee, a class 4 felony. He was also charged with aggravated battery, a class 2 felony, for injuring a Sheriff’s investigator during his arrest.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
