Grant Spurs More DUI, Other Patrols in West Virginia Town

I know you’ve heard this Morgantown criminal defense lawyer say it before: More enforcement = less DUIs and traffic infractions, an opinion backed up by a recent study. Now, at least in Farmington, West Virginia, there has been an enforcement blitz thanks to a cash infusion from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program in the form of a grant. The Farmington police department chose to spend that grant on an additional patrol vehicle, as well as extra patrols.

That means there were extra cops on the lookout for not only DUI and speeding, but for infractions such as not wearing a seatbelt, texting while driving and more this month. That initiative runs through the beginning of the month, while an effort to fight distracted driving launches in April. Police in Farmington have said, no, they won’t just be looking to arrest drunk drivers – adding that the extra patrols and unmarked car will help their town in myriad ways. I agree – but, as your friendly neighborhood Morgantown criminal defense attorney, I have to warn those who live, work or drive through Farmington to be a little more cautious while on the roads.

Everyone wins when you do. When you don’t, you might be the guy to get pulled over during such a blitz and could have to call a lawyer like me to help handle your charges. So, be careful. But if you get in a jam (whether it’s a DUI, a speeding ticket or a reckless driving charge), call me. I’d be happy to help.

"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
