Embattled Pratt Mayor Faces DUI Charges

Logue Law Group

A West Virginia mayor who last year refused to resign despite being arrested for possession of prescription drugs, again faces criminal charges for DUI. Police said Pratt Mayor Gary Fields was charged with driving under the influence after another driver called 911 to report that his vehicle was driving erratically around Chesapeake.

According to reports, police observed a truck being driven by Fields cross the yellow line and then swerve back into the correct lane. He reportedly crossed the center line two more times before being pulled over by an officer. While Fields told police he had not been drinking, he admitted taking Lortab, Neurontin, and Klonopin – pills for which he has a prescription. Field sobriety tests were administered to Fields, who police said was using a cane. During one test, he nearly fell over.

After conferring with a drug recognition expert with the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office, Fields was charged with a DUI of controlled substances. As a DUI defense lawyer, I can tell you that drug DUIs are trending in West Virginia and throughout the United States, thanks to minimally trained officers known as drug-recognition experts.

Mayor Pratt needs a qualified criminal defense lawyer who understands drug DUI laws, and who has experience dealing with defendants who work in the public eye. I am a seasoned, experienced attorney who has been distinguished not only as a member of the Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyers organization but also through inclusion in the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Stars list – and I will fight for your rights if retained.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
