New York City Criminal Court

New York City Criminal Court is a court of city-wide criminal jurisdiction with jurisdiction over crimes and other violations of law, other than those prosecuted by indictment, provided, however, that the legislature may grant to said court jurisdiction over misdemeanors prosecuted by indictment; and over such other actions and proceedings, not within the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, as may be provided by law. Judges are city residents appointed for terms of ten years by the Mayor of the City of New York.
