26th and California Chicago Felony DUI Court - Leighton Criminal Courthouse

Renamed in 2012 to the Leighton Criminal Courthouse, the Cook County Criminal Court at 26th and California is legendary, appearing in movies such as The Untouchables, or in TV shows like The Good Wife. There's a god reason. This courthouse is what everyone thinks of first when thinking of a criminal courthouse.

The Criminal Court known colloquially as "26th and Cal" is where most Chicago Felony criminal matters are heard, starting from central bond court and preliminary hearings through bench or jury trial.

The types of cases heard include felony DUI arrests in Chicago, whether the arresting agency is the Chicago Police Department, the Illinois State Police, the Cook County Sherrif's Police, the Illinois Secretary of State Police or one of the college police departments. If it's a felony DUI that occurred in Chicago, the odds are good this is where the case will ultimately be assigned and heard.
