Torrance Courthouse DUI Results
The Torrance Courthouse handles misdemeanor DUI offenses in three courtrooms (P, 2 and 5) in general. Felony DUI’s can be heard in many more courtrooms, but usually start in Department 4 with Judge Sokolov, proceed to 2 with Judge Thompson 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.
Consequently, in presenting the case summaries below, we caution the reader not to expect a similar result because no case can have completely and exactly the same facts and the prosecutors do change.
However, the DUI results below do help the reader understand how past cases have resolved and what is possible.
