Jail Records – How to Find Criminal Records About Anyone

Searching for jail records is one of the most important things that you can do. These records are kept by the state and federal correctional facilities and by the county sheriff. You can search these records online and find out the criminal history of the person in question including jail time, jail disposition, any crimes they were convicted of and any other felonies.

How do you access these records? You will need to visit the county office where the crime happened and fill out an application for a copy of the jail record. Many states require that the applicant provides written permission before gaining access to the records. If there was a criminal conviction, you will need to provide proof that the person has served part of their sentence. Ask for the jail paperwork when the application is completed. The paperwork may be difficult for someone who has never been to jail.

There are two types of records that you will need to access: criminal and civil. Criminal records include things like assaults, sex crimes and murder. Civil records include things such as accusations of libel, slander and so on. Jail records will tell you the person’s criminal history, but not their civil matters.

The only way to access the other information is to go to the court house or the jail where the event happened. This can be very difficult because jail and prisons are not open to the public. When visiting the jail make sure you are allowed access. Sometimes you have to be a visitor, a inmate or an official representative of a legal firm.

If you know the full name of the person in question, you may be able to get some of the information online through the white pages or your phone book. If not, your best bet is to go to an online database. There are many reputable sites that offer these services and they can save you time, aggravation and money.

If you are concerned about jail records, you should not hesitate to do a criminal check. The person you are checking out should have given their permission for an investigation. It is also a good idea to talk to friends or neighbors if they have any knowledge of this person. Doing a background check like this is a very smart thing to do.
