Longer WVU PRT Hours Could Mean Safer Morgantown

Robert Frost once famously said, “I always entertain great hopes.” I agree with Mr. Frost, and I think West Virginia University needs to, as well – one great hope in particular, which was articulated well in an op-ed piece published recently by WVU’s student newspaper, “The Daily Athenaeum.” Here is what is at issue: It is a well-known fact that Morgantown has a party-town reputation. It is also a well-known fact that the rate of DUI arrests is highest among college-aged men and women. A third fact – one that was lamented in the op-ed piece – is that WVU’s PRT (transit system) shuts down at 10 p.m.

The great hope of the student newspaper? That the university would run it all night. As a criminal defense lawyer who handles a high volume of DUI cases in the Morgantown area (some of themstudents from my alma mater, WVU), I negotiate for a living. And while I think that shutting down that transit resource at 10 p.m. is a bit early, I also know that asking for it to run all night might not be a winning proposal. That all said, I think there is plenty of room to compromise. While costs may prohibit WVU from operating the PRT all night, perhaps it could swing expanded hours – at least until after the bars close in town.

I already hear you: There are always going to be people who say, “But Sean, if you run the PRT until the bars close, isn’t that basically encouraging these kids to go get blasted?” And here’s my answer: No. I will entertain most great hopes, but some things are just an inevitability. Like this one: If a college student wants to drink, they are gonna drink – and then, they are gonna have to get home. And if they are intoxicated and need to get home, this Morgantown criminal defense lawyer who handles DUI defense all the time would much prefer they have an option other than taking a chance getting behind the wheel of their car.

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
