DA defends tweeting names of DWI arrestees
Last night, Warren Diepraam of the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office appeared on MSNBC to talk about his department's use of Twitter to embarrass motorists arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
When asked whether he thought the plan was problematic because those arrested for DWI were innocent until proven guilty, Mr. Diepraam commented that "We aren't the ones committing DWI, it's the suspects."
