If you have to head to the Leighton Criminal Courthouse at 26th and California next week, remember not to bring your cell phone.

They are banned starting Monday.

Storage units have been set up.

The goal of the ban is to protect jurors and witnesses from being intimidated by people taking pictures and sending information with their phones.

The ban is scheduled to expand to other courthouses in the county at later dates.
