This report is usually completed the same day or by a.m. next business day. If using this search for employment or rental purposes, FCRA guidelines require that you verify any criminal record found from a database search, with a county court criminal search, to obtain the most accurate and updated criminal offense case status. Criminal charges can sometimes be sealed, expunged or pleaded down from original prosecutor charge.
In order to bring you the most comprehensive and up-to-date criminal database search, our criminal report may have the same case listed multiple times. This is due to criminal data extracted from state sources (i.e., Department of Corrections, Admin Office of the Courts, Department of Public Safety, etc.) and individual county court sources. Be sure to review case number and filing date. In addition, some municipalities may have the original case listed at the lower court level and then transferred to upper courts for final disposition such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia to name a few.
Tip: Utilize aliases and former names derived from address history trace report when following up this report with other types of criminal searches such as county court, federal USDC courts, and premium state real-time criminal searches.

Did you know? Criminal database searches are cross-searched based on first, last name and exact DOB input. At the very least, it is very important that you verify correct name spelling and exact DOB reflected in driver’s license. Otherwise, you may get false negative results. If search subject has any previous former names or aliases, it is strongly recommended to additionally search those aliases.
Please Read: Note that in addition to criminal charges such as felonies and misdemeanors, our database search may also include traffic infractions and municipal ordinances that are not considered criminal offenses. Please carefully review each case accordingly.
FCRA: Be aware that any criminal cases found on a nationwide criminal database search may have been sealed or expunged at county court level and therefore cannot be used to make an employment decision. In compliance with the FCRA, criminal database searches should be verified by a county court and/or a real-time statewide criminal search to obtain the most recent case status. Criminal database searches may not include all levels of criminal records in all states. View full list of criminal data sources simultaneously searched.
