A man has been charged with threatening Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.

Steven Cleary of Franklin Park was arrested Friday and charged with threatening a public official and cyber-stalking.  Both are felonies.

Authorities say he sent more than 50 threatening e-mails to Dart over six months, and that he ignored their warnings to stop.

A judge set bond at $75,000 and ordered Clearly not to have any contact with Sheriff Dart.

Clearly is due back in court on Wednesday.
