WVU Suspends All Fraternity, Sorority Activity Following Incident that Resulted in Student’s Death

West Virginia University this week suspended all fraternity and sorority activities following an incident at a frat house that resulted in the death of a student.

Police said emergency responders were called to the Kappa Sigma fraternity house early Thursday, where an 18-year-old student was discovered unresponsive on the floor. CPR was performed on the student until paramedics arrived. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was reportedly in critical condition until he died Friday, Nov. 14. Members of Kappa Sigma told reporters that their charter was revoked following the party, which they said was not a frat-sponsored event.

This is the second high-profile incident involving a WVU frat house this month. The first was on Nov. 6, when 19 members of Sigma Chi were arrested for underage drinking and other offenses following a disturbance in South Park. Morgantown and WVU police are still investigating. WVU’s Office of Student Conduct will review the matters to determine any violations of the student code.

All students involved need an experienced lawyer to help them through this time. They may not only face criminal charges, but they likely may face student-conduct charges, as well. I am a WVU alum myself, and I handle many criminal cases both in Morgantown Municipal Court and Monongalia County Magistrate Court.

Often, I represent students who are charged with traditional college crimes, such as underage drinking, disorderly conduct, obstructing an officer, battery of an officer, public intoxication, DUI etc. I am also experienced in representing students in their respective university conduct proceedings. I have represented students from WVU and West Virginia Wesleyan, as well as schools in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Students do have due process rights that even include university judicial proceedings. I have also received many awards for my representation of those accused of crimes, among them are the Super Lawyer Rising Star and Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyer. If retained, I will fight for your rights and standing at your school.

"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
