City attorney: state law: misdemeanor.

Abstract

Existing law authorizes the city attorney of any general law city or chartered city to, with the consent of the district attorney of that county, prosecute any misdemeanor committed within the city arising out of violation of state law, as specified. This bill would, notwithstanding the above-described authorization for city attorneys, authorize the city attorney of any general law city or chartered city to prosecute any misdemeanor committed within the city arising out of violation of state law, provided that the legislative body of a city passes an ordinance granting that prosecutorial authority to the city attorney. The bill would authorize a city to rescind the ordinance that established the prosecutorial authority, and would require that authority to cease to exist on the date set forth in the rescinding ordinance.
