County Criminal Records
Most felony and misdemeanor cases are filed in county courts. This makes the county criminal searches one of the most important sources for uncovering criminal records. These searches return information from the court records in which the conviction is recorded.
Statewide Criminal Records
This search comes directly from the state’s official criminal record repository. Information is compiled from the counties within that state. The statewide criminal database typically includes felony and misdemeanor information from all or most counties.
Federal Criminal Records
This is a search of the federal district courts for any criminal charges that fall under federal jurisdiction. Crimes reported in a federal criminal record search include only those offenses that are federally prosecuted – violations of federal law as enforced by the FBI, DEA, ATF, and other government agencies– as opposed to local and state law.
