County Criminal Court Search

A County Criminal Record Search is a search of a specific county’s court records, and it is the most accurate and reliable form of researching a person’s potential criminal history. A standard county search includes both district and superior court searches, as county courts oversee criminal cases that fall under the jurisdiction of the State Court System. The cases held at the county level will include both felony, misdemeanor, and traffic offenses. This search is considered to be an essential part of any comprehensive employee background screening check.

How is the Search Performed?
In order to accomplish this search, our nationwide network of highly trained public record specialists contact, prepare, and work in unison with the respective county court administrators where the charges and or convictions were reported.  This means that we send a court researcher in person to the requested county courthouse to perform a manual search of the court’s index and dockets.  With access to over 3500 courthouses, we  know that by going directly to the source, our affiliated team of court professionals have the expertise and knowledge to properly work on your behalf to ensure you have the most complete criminal history information available at your fingertips.

What information is reported on a County Criminal Record?
The records returned for county-level criminal searches generally includes information regarding the degree of the offense, offense dates, case numbers, filing dates, defendants, counts, trial dates, verdicts, disposition, disposition dates, and sentencing details.   In some circumstances, other items on file may include:  Warrants, previous arrests, dismissed charges, or current active charges.

If a criminal record is located, ESP’s researchers follow extensive procedures by examining the public records.  This will ensure that the sourced information is accurate, current, and applies to your applicant’s vital information and identification.

Which counties should I order?
In order to better reduce the likelihood of workplace risk, and further protect from potential negligent hiring lawsuits, we recommend that, at a minimum, all counties of residence, work, and school be searched for a period of seven (7) years.

To offer both the best means of identification, and uncovering additional previous address where the applicant has lived and has been associated with; we recommend combing this search with our Social Security Verification and Address History Products.

How far back does the county criminal search go?

We provide a standard seven (7) Year Felony & Misdemeanor criminal history record search.  However, the period of time actually covered in a county criminal record report varies based on how state and federal law apply to that specific background check, and how the county maintains its records, and the research methods it utilizes.  If you choose, can certainly request to expand the scope of the search to 10 years or more, unless it is restricted by applicable state law limits.

What is the turnaround time for county criminal record searches?

Most County Criminal Records Checks are completed within 2-3 Business days, barring any unforeseen consequences or other complications.  However, since County Criminal Court Searches are conducted on-site at the local court house or records location, and may involve individual county policies- turnaround times may vary by location

* All Criminal Record searches are conducted in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

Statewide Criminal History

A statewide criminal history runs a criminal record check by utilizing state repositories, and agencies to search for felony, misdemeanor, and traffic related criminal activity committed by a person with a particular state.  These criminal record repositories are collections of records reported from the counties within that state.  The standard scope for the statewide criminal record search is 7 years, however extended searches may be available in some areas that comply with state law.

Why Should I Run A Statewide Search ?
These searches are effectively utilized to expand a broader coverage in states where a person has resided and can help you locate criminal histories that may be overlooked when only  focusing on a few select county-level criminal searches.   Additionally, the state level searches can help identify and locate criminal records near places of residence, employers, and academic institutions.  It is an essential check when looking to identify records for those who have lived and worked in a given state, and may be necessary to meet state compliance requirements for certain industries.

Commercial Drivers License

A Commercials Driver’s License, also referred to as a CDL, is a driver’s license which is required to operate large or heavy vehicles.  This CDL record demonstrates to carriers and employers that the applicant is a certified and competent Professional Truck Driver.
To drive certain types of commercial motor vehicles in the United States, the federal government requires drivers to possess a commercial driver’s license (CDL).  Additionally, companies regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT) are required to request motor vehicle record reports annually on their drivers.

Social Security Number with Address History Trace

This is considered both the first step and an essential part of the employment screening process, as we highly recommend anyone who orders a background check should always include this source within their screening package.

Not only is this search instrumental in determining if there is an independent match made with an individuals listed information; it will also identify additional names and addresses which can then ultimately be used by the employer to decide exactly where to search, and how far to expand the scope of the search in order uncover additional potential criminal histories.

What is a Social Security Number Trace and what does it do?
To make an accurate and strong association with your potential candidate, we begin with the social security trace, which is based on the social security number submitted by the applicant. This trace will determine whether the number is valid, is checked against the SSN deceased records, reveals both the state where it is was issued and year, previous and present addresses, names, maiden names, alias, and possible also known as (AKA’s) which have been identified with the provided number. An individual can often attempt to utilize someone else’ vital information (i.e. SSN, Date of Birth) when applying for an employment position, or conceal derogatory information. This step is critical in order to rule out these discrepancies, prevent SSN fraud, identify misused addresses, and potential problems.

What are the Sources used for a Social Security Number Trace?
We utilize many sources to locate and uncover additional addresses. The Social Security number with Address History Trace uses the “credit header” information; which is the non-confidential top portion of the credit report. This is not the full equivalent of credit report, or credit score of an individual’s consumer credit history. The name, address, SSN, and employer details, listed for each credit application are placed into an individual database and this scan then locates all associated names and addresses in the file associated with a specific Social Security Number. This information does not include financial and credit information, only that of identity and employer based details. These are essentially the same as those derived from the proprietary databases maintained when personal information is submitted via credit applications to the major Credit Reporting Agencies. As an example, this database contains information from lending institutions for preapproved credit card offers, utility companies, schools, and credit card companies. In this way, it is a powerful research tool for uncovering both vital and address information, which may not always be so easily provided or volunteered by the applicant.

Why Do We Use It and what is the benefit?
The easiest way for an individual to attempt to conceal a criminal background, would be purposely not disclosing all the places where they have lived and have been employed over the last few years. If this is the case, then the employer has no way to determine if a fraudulent employment applicant has been submitted, and if there are criminal charges elsewhere. By not using the identification resources of this search, the discovery of such applicant details would be nearly impossible.
It is for these and various other pertinent reasons, why we strongly advocate incorporating this search into your human resource requirements.

Generally, in civil cases the only identifier is a name match only, unlike criminal cases that have a date of birth match.

These records may include filing and receiving parties, relevant dates, judgment and settlement details or listed remedies as available in the case file. However, In the instance of a settlement, specific details may be under seal by the court.

Negative screening results are often released within 24 hours and non-negative screens are typically released within an additional 24 to 72 hours.
