Police Charge WV Man With DUI After Being Caught Driving at 113 mph

A Hedgesville man caught driving at 113 mph on Interstate 81 on Jan. 12 was charged with driving under the influence, according to Herald Mail Media. The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department said James Anthony Shelton, 44, who faces charges of speeding, aggravated DUI and driving with a DUI-related revoked license, second offense, had a blood-alcohol content of .185 percent, according to Herald Mail Media. The legal limit for intoxication in West Virginia is .08 percent.

From Logue Law Firm’s Sean Logue: While the DUI charge itself is serious, the defendant also faces a major traffic violation because of the excessive speed he was traveling just before being charged. The traffic offense itself carries its own license suspension. As for the DUI, because the defendant’s blood-alcohol content was more than .15 percent, he is not eligible to be enrolled in West Virginia’s deferral program for first-time offenders. And because he is not eligible for inclusion into that program, the penalties he faces are much more harsh.

Because of the high BAC in this case, as well as the speeding element, the defendant should hire not only an attorney who is experienced with DUI law, but also one who is well-versed in traffic violations defense. 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. 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
