Although the laws remain the same throughout the state, each county has its own take on how they choose to implement and enforce the relevant laws.
Los Angeles County, because of its large size and numerous courthouses, is an interesting example of how local differences come into play from one court to another. In fact, it is often the case that one courtroom can offer a different outcome for the same set of facts than another courtroom in the same building.
Different jurisdictions within the County will even have different prosecuting agencies handling the same type of case. For example, misdemeanors within the City of Los Angeles are typically handled by the Los Angeles City Attorney. Whereas, misdemeanors outside the City proper will be handled by the Office of the District Attorney. Each of these prosecuting agencies takes their own approach as to how they decide what an appropriate disposition in a case might be.
