Sheriff John Zaruba
Those issues are the crux of a federal sexual discrimination lawsuit Kuttner has filed against Sheriff John Zaruba and DuPage County. It is the second civil rights complaint of its type lodged in recent months against Zaruba.
Zaruba referred comment to DuPage County State's Attorney Joseph Birkett, who as the county's lawyer represents the sheriff's office, which employs an estimated 550 people.
Zaruba easily won election in 1998, 2002 and 2006, and garnered more than 80 percent of the vote in this February's GOP primary.
Zaruba served as the 2009 president of the National Sheriffs' Association and an Illinois Sheriffs' Association vice president. The DuPage County jail has won consistent praise and reaccreditation from correctional associations. One longtime female deputy, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the office's no-talk media policy, said Zaruba is a strong advocate for women.
Added Birkett: "I don't know how they could have that superior reputation and, at the same time, have the kind of behavior that is alleged to be going on."
Zaruba did ensure a respected crime scene investigator was investigated after an internal audit uncovered missing money out of seized property.
