The City of Burbank is located approximately 12 miles from Downtown Los Angeles and is often referred to as the "Media Capital of the World." It is a mid-sized city with a diverse population of approximately 110,000 residents and an estimated 100,000 people working there each day for businesses ranging from family-owned shops to massive entertainment companies such as Warner Brothers, NBC Universal, The Walt Disney Company, Cartoon Network, Viacom and PBS. Burbank has several popular areas, including Magnolia Boulevard in Magnolia Park, known for its antique shops and retro-trendy vibe, and Downtown Burbank with its numerous entertainment venues, restaurants, shopping centers and other developments that have blossomed over the past ten years.
The Burbank Courthouse, with its four criminal courtrooms, is located at 300 East Olive Avenue in the heart of Burbank's civic center. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office prosecutes the felonies in the Burbank Courthouse, while the Burbank City Prosecutors handle infractions and misdemeanors.
Typical misdemeanor cases heard at the Burbank Courthouse include driving-related crimes such as driving on a suspended license and DUI, theft crimes, drug crimes, domestic violence and assault and battery. The felony courtroom handles cases from both Burbank and Glendale, including felony drug crimes, theft crimes, domestic violence, and weapons charges, among others.
