Deep Thoughts on National Beer Day

I don’t know that it would be considered irony as much as juxtaposition but: On my news feeds today I saw stories about news items that piqued the interest of this Morgantown criminal defense attorney: One post talked about how it is National Beer Day (yes, thanks to the Internet, that is now a seemingly semi-legit holiday). The other? It expounded on the history of April being designated National Alcohol Awareness Month.

So, before you raise a glass in honor of National Beer Day (to the Internet, celebrate April 7 as the official end of prohibition in America), know that, especially with underage folks, raising too many is a real issue in the United States. Don’t want to be a buzz kill here, but according to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (known as the NCADD, which established National Alcohol Awareness Month way back in 1987), alcohol is the number-one drug of choice among America’s youth. The dangers associated with underage drinking have spurred the NCADD to theme this year’s observation as “For the Health of It: Early Education on Alcoholism”- and I can tell you that, in my experience as a Morgantown criminal defense attorney, more education is needed.

I represent a lot of clients who attend school at West Virginia University – some get charged with DUIs, some get charged with underage drinking, some with other alcohol-induced crimes. As a West Virginia University alum myself, I get it: Kids party in college, many times before they reach the legal age to drink. I just think as we celebrate National Beer Day, we should also be cognizant that we might be sending mixed signals to our young people with the revelry – and should join NCADD in its efforts to spread awareness about the dangers of underage drinking.

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. My mistake to hire him for her but her blessing. I know she didn’t thank you enough so allow me to for her. Very highly recommend Mr. Logue.” A.C.
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 for. Sean and his team worked hard for me. They're the best! Anonymous
After the salesmen told me my gun application "wouldn't be a problem," I was charged with an illegal attempt to posses a firearm. Sean Logue has a good relationship with the DA, but still pushed them to have a trial and I was found not guilty of the felony charge. Sean is a tough and smart lawyer who knows his way around the courtrooms. Anonymous
I am happy to be able to share this information with everyone. Mr. Logue gave attention to our problem immediately and resolved the issue for us quickly. He is an attorney who is respected, not just by us but the court system. I am thankful we found him, and would recommend him to anyone needing a great attorney to represent them. Anonymous
Mr Logue was the one I hired after talking to other attorneys about my case. He was the most knowledgeable and explained everything to me about his plan for me moving forward. He was always available to answer my questions and fought hard and got my charge dismissed!! Don't waste your time looking for anyone else to help you. Mr Logue did an amazing job and very professional! Anonymous
