Notice the Misdemeanor charge... The reason being if the deputy is charged with a felony (like we would be) and is convicted he would loose his job. Heaven only knows we would not want that!
And they say justice is blind... It is as long as you are not part of the justice system...
In summary IF the deputy is convicted of this crime he can go back to work as though nothing happened.
Oh and here is the best part... If the deputy was on duty at the time of the accident, then the Sheriff's Department can asert sovergein immunity which means the victim's family could not recover any damages from the County!
