Recently, there were two cases where Sheriff's deputies were involved in DUI related accidents. Matthew Cheeks, an Orange County Sheriff's Deputy, may be facing DUI charges after crashing his truck into a light pole last Friday. Robert Moran, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy was convicted of a DUI and injuring two people after crashing into their car. He was sentenced to home confinement, a three-month treatment program including a Mothers Against Drunk Driving panel meeting and three years informal probation.
