Post Whats the diff between superior court & district court?

Just notice my mans court date is in district court this time, last time it was superior.

Whats the difference?

Can he get still get sent to prison through district court?

I know the question/statement will come up... "depending on his charges."

Well i dont exactly know his charges... right now its dui & driving while suspended.

Though this was his 3rd or 4th dui, he was suppose to have an interlock & insurance (in order to have his occupational license) & he didnt.

I was told when he went in for his arraignment the judge decided to put him in jail because he was a danger to others & himself.

So back to my original question..... Whats the diff between district & superior court?

Thanks

District Court should mean Federal charges, rather than State charges.

You don't name the State. Maybe some State decided to be confusing and name one of their levels of criminal courts the District level. In some States, a certain level court only handles misdemeanors and felonies that are still in an early procedural phase. Other States (inc. CA) have one unified criminal trial court (Superior; although we used to have 2 levels, Municipal and Superior).
