The Tribunal correctionnel is competent to judge offences for which the Public Prosecutor's Office intends to request a custodial sentence of more than 2 years but not exceeding 10 years.
This is often the case, for example, for serious drug offences, rape, serious assault, theft for financial gain and other offences against property.
Being a first instance authority, the Tribunal correctionnel sits in a three-judge formation.
