County Criminal Records Check

This is a search of publicly available county criminal records including felony, misdemeanor, and pending criminal records. This search occurs based on information revealed from the National Criminal Database search or Address History search. Search methods vary depending on how the court maintains its records, but can include a search of primary source electronic databases maintained by governmental organizations or use of a network of professional court and record researchers.
