FILE - This Jan. 12, 1951 file photo shows a view of the Los Angeles Hall of Justice with the Hollywood Freeway (U.S. Highway 101) under construction behind it. The Hall of Justice opened in 1926 as an all purpose justice center, providing 17 courtrooms, 750 jail cells, a morgue and offices for law enforcement officials. Its proximity to Hollywood made it a site of famous trials and fictional movie and TV shows. After decades of service and two decades of disuse after a 1994 earthquake, the Hall of Justice has been returned to its former, albeit repurposed, glory.

But a single grim artifact has been preserved: the claustrophobic jail cell occupied by Charles Manson, Sirhan Sirhan and other celebrity defendants.
