Long Beach, California is situated about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. The second largest city in Los Angeles County, Long Beach boasts an estimated population of about 493,000 throughout its 65.9 square miles. Long Beach is home to the Port of Long Beach, one of the world’s largest shipping ports. Aside from shipping, the city’s economy is stimulated through the manufacturing of goods, such as aircraft (Boeing) and automobile parts, is the corporate headquarters for large corporations such as Epson America and SCAN Health Plan, and even has a large oil industry (with oil deposits both underground and offshore). As is the case for most booming cities, Long Beach has alleged incidents of driving under the influence and other crimes. Those who are accused have rights and deserve a fair trial and quality legal representation from an experienced Long Beach criminal defense attorney.
When charged with DUI in Long Beach, most people do not realize just how many consequences they face. First of all, in most cases you will have to go to a DMV Hearing, which must be requested within 10 days of your arrest, to protect your driving privileges so that your license is not suspended. If you fail to request a DMV hearing, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended for four months or longer if this isn’t your first DUI offense.
