County Criminal Court Report
The county courthouse is the originating source for criminal records. FCRA guidelines requires that employment or rental decisions must be based on accurate and updated information. Thus, the county court is where you can obtain information about case details and most recent disposition such as a felony pleaded down to a misdemeanor, case sealed or expunged, etc. Oftentimes, database searches only show original charge filed without any updates to disposition after the fact. The key element to look for is the final disposition (court’s final determination of a case) when screening an applicant.
Search Tip: If known aliases or former maiden names exist, it is recommended to also process search using those identifiers.
