About Criminal Records Search

Are Criminal Records Available to the Public?

In most cases, Criminal Records are considered public records, which means that they are available to the public. Certain records may be sealed or expunged, particularly those that deal with juvenile offenses, private disputes, and others that are sealed at the request of the court or the offender.

What Is the Difference Between a Misdemeanor and a Felony?

A misdemeanor is typically defined as a crime punishable by up to a year in jail. Jail time for misdemeanors may be served in a local county jail rather than a high-security prison. Felonies are the most serious crimes, punishable by prison sentences of more than one year. Criminal felonies include murder, rape, burglary, kidnapping, and arson.

Can Criminal Records Be Expunged?

Yes, under certain circumstances. Individuals can petition the court to have their Criminal Records expunged. Other Criminal Records may be sealed, particularly in the case of juvenile offenses. If a criminal conviction has been expunged, the individual cannot legally be required to disclose the conviction.
