Criminal records in our database
backgroundchecks.com is constantly working to improve and update our criminal records database.
However, electronic access to court records is not always possible and we can't guarantee the database is 100% up-to-date all the time. It can take time for new & updated charges, verdicts. sentencing etc to make its way through the court records systems.
This is why a direct courthouse search is the only guaranteed way to bring back the most up to date records in any given jurisdiction.
We have a nationwide network of experienced criminal record researchers who know the local, state and federal courthouses and court clerks and actually go on site to retrieve the criminal records you are searching for.
A federal criminal search is conducted by ordering searches of records at a particular US District Court for crimes that are federally prosecuted.
A statewide search may yield information from multiple counties in a given state, useful for discovering crimes outside of the immediate area in which the requested subject lives or works.
Since local law enforcement report felony and misdemeanor charges to county court houses, county criminal record searches are one of the most powerful sources for uncovering criminal records.
