Kanawha County deputies recently issued an arrest warrant for a West Virginia man they said was involved in a rollover crash in Sissonville, according to WOWKTV.com
Authorities are seeking Steven Russell Beane Jr., who they said rolled his vehicle over June 3 while driving near Route 21, forcing a brief road closure, according to the website.
Beane has been charged with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.
Attorney Sean Logue’s take:
In this case, Mr. Beane could have a legitimate defense depending on if – and when – chemical testing was conducted.
A number of questions need answered: How long after the crash was he tested? What type of testing was conducted? If he fled the scene, how do police know he was driving the car at the time of the crash?
Mr. Beane should contact a qualified criminal defense attorney who specializes in DUI and who understands how to attack the basis of a prosecutor’s case.
