§ 2009. Venue.

Charges of misdemeanor may be tried at any place within the
territorial jurisdiction of the court. All other charges shall be tried

have been committed. An accused person need not be arraigned or tried
before the judge signing or issuing the summons or warrant, but may be
arraigned or tried before any judge of the court; provided, however,
that whenever trial has been commenced, it shall be continued and
concluded by and before the same judge before whom it was commenced,
except as hereinbefore provided.
