The Local Tustin Courthouse
If you are arrested in Tustin, you must appear at the Central Justice Center of the Orange County Superior Court located at:
Orange County Superior Court – Central Justice Center
700 Civic Center Dr. West
Santa Ana, CA 92701
The self-help area of the Central Justice Center is located on the first floor. A self-help attorney and court personnel are available Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Misdemeanor cases are handled by departments C47 and C54. Felony matters at the Central Justice Center are handled by departments C5, C55 and C57. Your Orange County criminal defense attorney can appear for you in court. However, you are required to appear at the arraignment for any domestic violence cases or felony crimes. You must be present by 8:30 a.m.
At the Central Justice Center, the judges are extremely strict and rarely deviate from the DA’s offer. Most judges will not allow home confinement for individuals charged with a second or third DUI. They would prefer for those persons to serve time in county jail.
On misdemeanor cases, Commissioner Berenson is the presiding judge. The presiding judge on felony cases for individuals who are bound over to Superior Court is Judge Prickett. Both are very strict, no-nonsense judges. For felony cases that have not been bound over to Superior Court, the presiding judge will be either Judge Schwarm or Judge Johnston.
