Jail Records

Jail records are a public record and as such can be obtained by any individual for the most part. This means that anyone can gain access to this information and make certain decisions regarding their arrest. However, there are some restrictions on the information that one can obtain and these restrictions are set forth in the Kentucky Criminal Justice Code Section 1334.

All arrest records are public information. There is no restriction as to how and who the records can be obtained by. Individuals can gain access to jail records through the clerk of court in each county or they can contact the local courthouse for this information. Some counties will allow the individual to pay a small fee and have access to all of the records within a limited time period. Others will allow the individual to access the records but will charge a minimal fee.

There are various types of reasons that one may need access to these records. Access can be gained for employment purposes as many employers check an applicant’s criminal history prior to providing employment. Also, access can be required for certain legal purposes, including determining if an applicant is eligible to rent a home and other similar rental applications.

Criminal history checks can also be done as a part of a background check as well. If someone is applying for housing, applying to work at a new school, applying for credit, or going on a job interview it would be prudent to know if they have a criminal history. In some instances, people may be denied employment or other opportunities because of previous mistakes made on their criminal history. Jail records can be used to obtain this information. The only problem with jail records is that, since they are considered to be public information, they are available for free to any person who requests them.

Jail records in Lee County are accessible by the public through the clerk of court in each county. There are several websites that offer free information about jail records and you can use these websites to obtain your jail information. You can get various bits of information about a person such as criminal history, inmate records, booking records, or other inmate information. Search by name or by location to find out the jail that a person has been to.

Some of the records you will receive from these sites are limited to a year. This means you will not receive anything more than the year that the jail data existed. If the person was in jail for a long time, you may not get any further information. This is because many times people change their names when they are put into jail. Jail records are considered public information so you can search for them online.
