Sheriff and police officers are responsible for enforcing the law. When a Sherriff or police officer breaks the law, they are held to the same standard as all other citizens. This is true about their spouses and other family members as well. This goes for the wife of a Sheriff who has repeatedly been arrested for DUI, especially when one arrest resulted in the death of a child. Victims of drunk drivers may not think of filing a personal injury lawsuit but this may be the only way for that family to begin recovering from their loss. That is why victims of drunk drivers should rely on an experienced personal injury attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through the complicated litigation process inherent in personal injury cases.
An East Bay, California mother arrested last year for a DUI crash that killed a young boy has been arrested for DUI again. Yarenit Malihan, the wife of an Alameda County, California Sheriff’s Deputy, was found lying on the ground at the Sunol and Bernal Restaurant in Pleasanton, California. This is her third alcohol or drug-related arrest. The arresting officer said she seemed intoxicated, but complained of back pain, so they took her to the hospital.
Back in September, Ms. Malihan was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs after a fatal crash in San Ramon, California. The crash killed 3 year-old Elijah Dunn, who was strapped in his car seat in the second car. She had reportedly been charged with DUI and child endangerment the previous June after being pulled over in Pleasanton, California with her 10-year-old child in the car.
