At least three Prince George's County sheriff's deputies recently charged with offenses related to drunken driving are on the job, although their police powers have been suspended while their cases are investigated.
"It's very disturbing to me when law enforcement officers have been charged with drunk driving. We look to them for a higher standard," Ms. Withers said. "It's really upsetting to me that they feel they somehow have the right to violate the law."
Ms. Withers said MADD expects the judicial system and the deputies' agency to hold them accountable.
