Criminal Court Chambers

The Criminal Court Chambers (where minor offences are tried) are located in the building built at the begin of the XXth century between the old Rue de la Sainte-Chapelle and the Quai des Orfèvres by the architect Tournaire.
In addition to the eight courtrooms and their annexes, this building houses many departments of the Criminal Court Clerk's Office and the District Attorney's department. The accused who have been imprisoned access the courtrooms directly from the detention area via a network that is independent from the public galleries.
