Even within a single county like Los Angeles, the way criminal cases proceed—and the types of outcomes one should expect—can vary widely based on the local courthouse the case is assigned to. Everyone follows the same basic body of law, the California Penal Code, but the way that law is carried out can be so different from place to place that it might seem hardly recognizable. Competent defense attorneys know that a criminal case in Lancaster should be handled differently than a criminal case in Downey, for example.
