West Virginia Dept. of Transportation Spokesman Charged With DUI

Take it from a West Virginia DUI defense attorney: I’ve represented more than 300 people who have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and it’s never easy. In West Virginia, first-time DUI offenders must attend hearings (and sometimes even alcohol and highway safety classes), pay fines and install ignition-interlock devices on their vehicles – which is to say nothing of the embarrassment many of them feel when their family, friends and coworkers find out about their charges.

While news of many DUI charges are limited to a few paragraphs buried deep within a police beat, some defendant’s jobs make their DUIs a smidge more newsworthy. You’ve likely seen the clips yourself: Television and print media seem to devote more time to driving-under-the-influence charges if it’s a public figure – a politician or police officer or educator. Most recently, the director of communications for the West Virginia Department of Transportation was charged with DUI. Police said the man, Brent Walker, was stopped after allegedly failing to signal when he changed lanes before crossing a bridge in Charleston. Officers said Walker failed two field-sobriety tests, and that breath tests showed he had a blood-alcohol content of .107 percent.

In West Virginia, a driver is considered to be impaired if their BAC is more than .08 percent. We live in a society where DUIs are – understandably – frowned upon, and I assure you, there is no special treatment for folks whose jobs put them in the public eye. While it is important for anyone charged with a driving under the influence offense to hire a lawyre who focuses on DUI defense, it is doubly important for those in high-profile jobs to do so. There’s that much more on the line.

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
