How to Get Your DUI Charges Dismissed Through DUI Deferral Program in West Virginia

Being arrested with DUI charges can be a life-altering event. You might feel overwhelmed with the impending events and harassment. You are probably thinking about how you can face future difficulties. The DUI charges and eventual conviction can lead to complete disarray of events including loss of education, employment, and loss of housing. You are probably thinking of consulting a Morgantown DUI lawyer for dealing with the case.

But do you know that if you are a first time DUI offender, you can have the opportunity to get all the charges of DUI in West Virginia dismissed? Well, our Morgantown criminal lawyer from Mountaineer Criminal Law Group can help you with that. And also, for this, you need to participate in the state’s DUI deferral program.

DUI Deferral Program in West Virginia

According to Senate Bill 186, in effect from 2010, the DUI deferral program gives the first offenders a chance to get the criminal charges dismissed while the arrest record gets expunged. Our Morgantown DUI lawyer can help you understand your role in this.

If you want to qualify for the DUI Deferral Program, you need to follow these points,

  • To be charged with DUI for the first time
  • To have a BAC under .15%
  • To have no prior record of DUI conviction anywhere in the USA
  • Not having a CDL
  • To comply with a breath test when you are getting arrested
Expunging DUI Arrest

Once the charges of DUI get dismissed, you can request the clearance of the arrest record if you are a first time offender for DUI. The prosecution will get the time of 30 days to object to your request of expunction. In this case, the court will hold another open session for considering your motion. Once the court approves, your arrest will be expunged from the records. Morgantown criminal lawyer can guide you through the process.

"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
