Jail Records Search – Get Your Free Criminal Records Report

Free background checks on people can be obtained by the public in several ways, but one of the easiest and fastest ways to obtain these documents is by using the online prison records database maintained by the Federal Bureau of Prison. The inmate’s name, date of birth, social security number and any other information that might be useful for obtaining a background check are recorded in the database. The full name of a person who has been in prison is also available from this database. This information can be obtained easily as the person can just give his/her name and the information relating to his/her conviction would be displayed. The same applies to an individual who is suspected of having a gangster past.

In Virginia, jail records are considered public records and are accessible by any member of the public upon the request of the person or of the legal authority if the person is under the guardianship of someone. However, there are certain restrictions that have to be observed when requesting for these criminal records. The only information that is available would be the personal details of the convict, nature of the crime he was convicted of and the date of his incarceration. There is no other information available.

Most of the states across the country maintains these databases, so it is not that difficult to find the relevant information regarding a certain individual. However, some states do not make any jail records available to the public. This is mostly because of privacy issues. There are instances where people might go to extreme lengths to hide the identity of a convict or the identity of a member of the public. There are even instances where the wanted person may be killed or put to life before the public. For such a situation, the criminal justice system usually requires that the criminal record is suppressed.

Obtaining jail records through the Federal Bureau of Prison would require that you fill up a form and submit it to the concerned bureau. Within a few days, you will get the details that you need. These files would contain the criminal nature of the convict, his age at the time of arrest, name of the court and the crime for which he was convicted, nature of sentence received, name of supervisory staff in the jail, list of all files found in the jail and date of closure. However, most of the criminal justice departments prefer to keep these files confidential.

There are several reasons why you should not obtain the jail records of a particular person. Unless you are a doctor who has to deal with the criminal records of his patient or an agent who has to check out the background of a person applying for a sensitive job, you should not use this service. Another reason is that the criminal records are almost always outdated. It might show a different case when you search from 10 years ago.

The accuracy of the records can also not be guaranteed. There are some instances where the details may be wrong as well. This is mainly because the jail authorities might record wrong data. Moreover, if the paper trail of the case is complex, then it might give wrong information. Therefore, I would suggest that you do not waste your time going through these files.
