Naperville Police Officer Charged with Official Misconduct

June 23, 2023

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced today that a Naperville police officer is accused of using his position as a police officer to run the license plate of a vehicle for purposes other than official police business. On June 20, 2023, Judge Brian Telander issued a $10,000 with 10% to apply personal recognizance arrest warrant for Anthony Cimilluca, 48 (d.o.b. 6/10/1975). Late Thursday afternoon, Cimilluca turned himself in to authorities, where he was processed and then released from custody. He is charged with one count of Official Misconduct, a Class 3 Felony.

According to the complaint, on February 14, 2023, Cimilluca “knowingly performed an act that he knew he was forbidden by law to perform, by using the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS) in violation of the LEADS Administrative Code.”

“While the allegations against Mr. Cimilluca are very serious, I would like to stress that these allegations are in no way indicative of the outstanding work of the men and women in the Naperville Police Department,” Berlin said. “The Naperville Police Department is one of the finest police departments in the State and this appears to be an isolated incident with no other officers involved.”

Cimilluca’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 24, 2023, for arraignment in front of Judge Brian Telander. 

Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt.  A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
