CHOCTAW COUNTY, Okla. -- A former Sawyer, Oklahoma, police chief has been sentenced for sexually assaulting a driver.

A federal judge sentenced Coke Douglas Makerney, 48, to eight years in prison Wednesday morning.

Makerney pleaded guilty to the charges last November.

Investigators say Makerney had sex with a female driver when he pulled her over in a traffic stop.

Makerney will have three years supervised release after he serves his time in prison.

    So, by Clyde's logic, those of us who are Men, but not in a position of public trust are excused...

    Police and Firemen as well as Politicians are men first with all the weaknesses that any man has its the ones who are able to rise above the temptations of corruption and greed to help thier fellow man that are true heros and are worth our trust ,When one takes advantage of the uniform or office he should never again be allowed to shame the ones who do make a difference and care.We as a society have a lot of say in this matter by not condoning such behavior from who we hire or elect to public service.Demand moral and just people for the jobs and not take whats "good enough"Demand accountability.
