Torrance Courthouse DUI Case Results Gardena to Manhattan Beach

The Torrance Courthouse handles misdemeanor DUI offenses in three courtrooms (P, 2 and 5) in general. The misdemeanor cases start in Department 3 with Judge David Reinert and then proceed to P, 2 and 5. 

Felony DUI’s can be heard in many more courtrooms, but usually start in Department 4 with Judge Thomas Sokolov, proceed to 8 with Judge Nicole Bershon and then are assigned to one of several courtrooms.

Which department hears a particular misdemeanor case is determined by where the arrest took place. Each department has one or more prosecutors assigned to it. Over time, prosecutors are transferred to other courtrooms. Prosecutors also change in their approach to DUI’s, some more than others.
