20 YEARS ON A GUILTY PLEA FOR LONG BEACH RESIDENT

For Raymond Gene Rogers, a guilty plea to two DUI charges earned him a sentence of 20 years, according to District Attorney Joel Smith. Circuit Judge Larry Bourgeois presided over the hearing and sentenced Rogers to 10 years suspended, and 10 years to be served in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. The first conviction for the Long Beach resident stemmed from an accident on West Old Pass Road in October 2017. The Long Beach Police Department had a search warrant and the defendant’s blood was drawn at a local hospital to be tested by the Mississippi Crime Lab. Reports say Rogers’ blood-alcohol content was 0.389%, more than four times the legal limit at the time of his arrest. After his arrest, the defendant posted bond in the amount of $25,000 and was released. Rogers later admitted that he drank an entire bottle of Crown Royal and was on his way to the store to buy more.
