Summary as introduced:
Venue in criminal cases; concurrent jurisdiction; obsolete provisions. Provides that the courts of a locality have concurrent jurisdiction with the courts of any other adjoining locality over criminal offenses committed in or upon the premises, buildings, rooms, or offices owned or occupied by such locality or any officer, agency, or department thereof that are located in the adjoining locality and repeals an existing statute that provides such concurrent jurisdiction for certain enumerated localities. The bill also deletes references to corporation courts, which no longer exist, and repeals several obsolete provisions involving courts not of record that ceased to be applicable in 1980. This bill is a recommendation of the Virginia Code Commission.
