An Overview about Burbank Criminal Cases
The Burbank, California community prides itself on strict law enforcement, and extraordinary resources are spent in this pursuit, including on laws which might seemingly appear to be a minor in nature, such as the Burbank Smoking Ordinance. Municipal Code cases like these are actually filed in the Burbank Criminal Courthouse as misdemeanors and punishable by up to 6 months in the county jail and a $1000 fine.
Burbank criminal cases are handled in 4 courtrooms.
Burbank Criminal Court, Division 2 handles approximately half of the city misdemeanor, local code, and traffic violations; cases ending with numbers 0, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9, are assigned to this department.
Burbank Criminal Court Division 3 handles the remaining arraignments; cases ending with numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 are assigned here.
Felony cases are handled in Burbank Division 1.
Burbank Department G is an overflow trial court.
Burbank courtrooms generally set 50 or more cases each day. Because of the extraordinary volume of cases, the courts do not have the resources to spend a significant amount of time on each case. Thus, many people appearing in court do not have a significant opportunity to discuss their case with the judge. However, it is important that your case receive the necessary attention, in order to resolve it properly.
