Off-Duty Cook County Sheriff charged in fatal DUI crash

Just a week after a Cook County Sheriff was killed outside the Leighton Criminal Courts Building, allegedly by a hit and run driver whose license was revoked for DUI, a Sheriff now stands accused of causing the death of a 41 year old woman in Franklin Park.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times,

An off-duty Cook County Sheriff’s deputy was charged Tuesday with aggravated DUI for a fatal crash early Sunday in west suburban Franklin Park.  Jamie O’Malley, 37, was charged with aggravated DUI, according to Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokesman Andy Conklin.  Cook County Sheriff’s police spokesman Frank Bilecki said the driver in the crash was an off-duty sheriff’s deputy driving a personal vehicle.

Marcil Maris-Quevedo, 41, was struck by a vehicle early Sunday at Mannheim Road and Minneapolis Avenue in Franklin Park, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.  A Franklin Park police sergeant said the driver was taken into custody following the crash.  Maris-Quevedo, of the 3000 block of Bright Street in Franklin Park, was pronounced dead at 3:29 a.m. Sunday at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

O’Malley will appear in bond court Wednesday in Maywood.
