Name: Price v. Superior Court
Case #: S085852
Court: CA Supreme Court
District CalSup
Opinion Date: 06/25/2001
Subsequent History: None

In a lengthy opinion, the Court considered Penal Code section 784.7, which permits the trial of more than one of several listed offenses in any county in which one such offense occurred if the defendant and victim are the same in all of the charged offenses. The law creates a venue for trial of some offenses in a county other than that in which the offenses occurred. The Court held the statute did not violate the vicinage clause of the Sixth Amendment or article I, section 16 of the California Constitution.
