The Chicago Sun-Times has more information on Jamie O’Malley, the Cook County Deputy Sheriff who has been charged with aggravated DUI arising out of a fatal accident in Franklin Park last Sunday.
According to the Sun-Times,
The Cook County sheriff’s deputy charged with felony DUI for a fatal accident Sunday in Franklin Park reportedly told arresting officers, “Oh God, I hope I didn’t kill this guy.”
Jamie T. O’Malley, 37, of Franklin Park is charged with aggravated DUI for striking and killing Marcial Marias-Quevedo on Mannheim Road in Franklin Park at 1:43 a.m. Sunday, authorities said.
O’Malley smelled strongly of alcohol and told police he’d come from a party where he’d had “two beers,” Van Kampen said.
The 6-foot-tall, 200-pound O’Malley reportedly failed field sobriety tests, then refused a Breathalyzer test.
He later submitted to urine and blood tests. Those tests, administered 1-1/2 hours after the accident, yielded a blood alcohol level of .105 percent, above the legal limit of .08.
Aggravated DUI causing the death of one person is punishable from three to fourteen years in the penitentiary, although a judge can sentence the person to probation if the court determines that “extraordinary circumstances exist.” 625 ILCS 5/11-501(d)(2)(G).
Bond was set at $150,000, which means that O’Malley must post $15,000 to be released pending trial. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for next Monday.
