The logical and accurate starting point is the county court as all cases originate from this jurisdiction. Open cases are also reported and generally include cases awaiting trial or charges for failure to appear on a pending case. Typically, this involves a physical visit to the courthouse to conduct the search. This search will include a minimum of seven years for both felony and misdemeanor court convictions. Our county searches consist of misdemeanor and felony searches in municipal, lower, district, circuit and superior courts.
Each state operates a central criminal history record repository that receives case information contributed by the courts and law enforcement agencies. These states compile the information into one central database. Some states may have a repository that is restricted access and therefore may not be available. Reported information is generally limited to seven years but older convictions will be reported if available and the state law allows.
