Cook County correctional officer Robert Buchanan, who is charged with sexually assaulting a young girl in 1997, was released Friday on bond from the same jail where he once worked.

Buchanan allegedly repeatedly assaulted a 10-year-old relative in 1997.

The charges were filed after a rape kit taken by Harvey police was recently tested. It was discovered during a raid on the police station in 2007.
