BROWNSVILLE, TX — Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Take the Wheel initiative presented District Attorney Luis V. Saenz with the Diamond Hero Leadership Award.
The award was presented today at the 4th Annual Mothers Against Drunk Driving Law Enforcement Recognition event held at the Holiday Inn in Brownsville.
“I am honored to receive this award by an organization that works diligently to assist the victims and families affected by drunk driving,” District Attorney Saenz said. “This award provides additional motivation for our office in seeking justice for those victims.”
On June 5, a prosecutor with the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office was struck by a drunk driver and remains hospitalized.
“This is an issue that hits very close to home,” District Attorney Saenz said. “We are grateful for the excellent work MADD does for our community.”
