The OC Courthouse in Westminster was built in 1967.  It has 16 courtrooms. Its average daily pedestrian traffic is 2,406 persons entering and existing the currently one entrance to the courthouse.

The Court in Westminster handles DUI cases, and other criminal cases, from any arrests within the following cities:

This court has exterior traffic windows, which reduce the number of people entering the court, and makes it easy to pay fines, get information, and have the court provide copy of documents without having to wait in the security check line.

Your Court Appearance in the Westminster Court.

If you have been arrested for DUI and are appearing at the West Justice Center, you will typically be given a court date on a document, for your arraignment.

Your arraignment will be in Department W-3, on the first floor.  

After your arraignment, your case proceeds to pretrial.

Misdemeanor pretrials are all heard in Department W-17, upstairs on the second floor of the Westminster Courthouse.

If you have a case that has already been set for a trial at a previous date by a judge, then misdemeanor trials start in W-17, where they can be assigned to any courthouse in the courthouse, or anywhere in Orange County.

Persons Held in Jail for their Court Date in Westminster: If you are in court for a case where someone is in custody, they are usually held in the basement under the custody of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and brought up to court when ready, as needed by the court.

Approximately 2,000 or more inmates are transported, by bus, to the West Justice Facility each month from various Orange County Jail facilities. The holding facility at the West Justice Facility has a rated capacity for 253 inmates. However, those in custody are required to be kept separated (by gender, by ethnicity, gang affiliations, health, or protective custody), and as a result, the Westminster Court detention facility cannot safely hold more than 150 inmates.

Only the lawyers and attorneys that are a member of the California Bar Association and members of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department are allowed to visit persons in custody in the courthouse.
