Want to Prevent WVU Campus Crimes? Be Informed

There’s been a lot of news lately about college students behaving badly, and my alma mater, West Virginia University in Morgantown, has earned its fair share of those headlines. Let’s face it: Where there are colleges, there are college students who sometimes make unwise decisions that lead them to be charged with crimes such as underage drinking, public intoxication, vandalism and harassment. While you’ve likely seen the headlines, you might not be familiar with the statistics – or how serious the issue of college crimes is being taken federally.

An FBI study from a few years back said crime in schools is “one of the most troublesome social problems in the nation today.” According to the report: “Not only does it affect those involved in the criminal incident, but it also hinders societal growth and stability. In that light, it is vital to understand the characteristics surrounding crime in schools, colleges and university and the offenders who reportedly commit these offenses so that law enforcement, policy makers, school administrators, and the public and properly combat and reduce the amount of crime occurring in these institutions.”

To that end, I wanted to let my friends in the West Virginia University community know that they can stay up-to-date with the types of crimes being perpetrated on campus by simply visiting the school’s website. The WVU website publishes a publicly availably police log detailing reports taken from its internal police department. The page lists incidents by day, and 90 day’s worth of reports are available. In addition, there are links to the Morgantown Police Department and area correctional facilities. Also of interest is an interactive crime mapping tool that allows users to search for crime by address and more. Like anything, the only way to combat and prevent college crimes is to have a better understanding of the crimes being committed, and where. And West Virginia University is giving the community the tools to do just that.

"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
