Prosecutor charged in attack on clerk in adult store
CHICAGO — A Cook County prosecutor has been charged with misdemeanor battery and criminal trespass for allegedly becoming disruptive at a Chicago adult store.
Sarah Naughton, a four-year assistant state’s attorney, is accused of biting a store worker in the leg Saturday when she was asked to leave.
Authorities say Naughton and a companion, both appearing to be intoxicated, were asked to leave shortly after they entered the store. However, Naughton became belligerent and bit a worker. According to authorities, her companion, Bradley Gould, shoved the worker and made “menacing gestures” to him.
The store owner took the clerk to a nearby hospital for treatment.
State’s attorney spokesman Andy Conklin says the 31-year-old Naughton has been placed on administrative leave.
It’s was not immediately known if Naughton and Gould obtained legal representation.
