Los Angeles Criminal Courts …..Simplified

Table of Contents

Criminal courts can be intimidating and unfamiliar to many people.  In fact, the closest many people have gotten to a criminal courtroom is through television.

In criminal courts each side is generally represented by a lawyer.  The prosecutor is usually a City Attorney or District Attorney.  The criminal defendant is usually represented by a lawyer from the Public Defender’s Office or a Private Attorney.  In some cases criminal defendants may chose to represent themselves.

The Los Angeles County criminal justice system stretches from Malibu to Lancaster.  Each courthouse within the county has its own way (culture) of dealing with criminal cases.  In fact, a criminal conviction in one courthouse may result in simple probation whereas another courthouse jail time and probation is the norm.
