Criminal Background Check Reports: FAQ

Criminal Background Check Reports @ Investigations 123 com

A criminal record is a record of a person’s criminal history, but the information included in a criminal record varies between states, and counties.

Criminal records may include traffic offenses such as drunk-driving and speeding, and conviction records where the person has been declared guilty by an US court, or simply pleaded guilty.

Conviction records include a wide array of offense degrees such as misdemeanor and felony offenses.

Here at Investigations123.com we match criminal records to your subject based on the search criteria you’ve entered in your preliminary search.

Key information about a person’s criminal conviction records like the nature of the crime, the offense date and the reporting institution will be listed, record by record. However, the amount of information included in a criminal record will vary according to its sources.

Your subject-matter might have several criminal records and you’ll have the ability to show or hide any specific record.

In order to give you the best instant access to relevant criminal records, we will preselect criminal records that exactly match your search criteria and present them to you. However, in order to be comprehensive in our results, our database also returns records that aren’t necessarily a complete match, but contain enough matching elements that might be relevant for your current search. We’ll allow you to choose if you want to add them to the profile on the current subject or create a new profile on a different person – if you might wish to keep the records separately.

Are you being refused jobs because of criminal records that show up under your name?
Even if you are sure that you’ve never been arrested or convicted for any crime, employers might still find criminal records when they search for your name. You see, thousands of American citizens share the same name and employers aren’t always able to distinguish among them. That’s why checking your own criminal records is so important – it’ll prevent accidental mix-ups and it’ll allow you to verify what will show up out of your real past.

Investigations123.com will offer you the following 3 options:

  1. National Sex Offender Reports,
  2. Single State Criminal Reports, and
  3. National Criminal Reports.

Criminal record information is collected from a variety of federal, state and county public records, including departments of corrections, departments of public safety, county courts, state dockets, sex offender registries, Federal and Appellate court dockets, Supreme Court and County dockets, municipal jurisdictions, federal fugitive files, federal and state courts, supreme courts, small claims courts, family courts, appeals courts, district courts, traffic courts, state and county criminal record repositories, prison parole and release files, probation records, records from other state agencies and Interpol public records.

If you are searching for criminal records only, you will not receive reports on police records or arrest records.

Traffic Offenses: normally, the only traffic offenses that show on a criminal record would be serious offenses such as hit and run violations, or driving under the influence.

Misdemeanors: usually considered a minor offense, the misdemeanor is a crime punishable by incarceration, typically in a local jail. The most incarceration period is usually limited to less than twelve months.

Felonies: these offenses are considered more serious than the previous two categories. Typically, a felony carries a penalty of incarceration from one year to life in a state prison, up to the death penalty.

Crime is an act or omission that the law makes punishable. It can also be the breach of a legal duty, which is treated as the subject of a criminal proceeding. There are serious and less serious crimes. However, common law recognizes only two classes of crimes – serious crimes (or felonies) and minor crimes (or misdemeanors).

Crime (or criminal) record is the summary of a person’s contacts with law enforcement agencies, and provides details of all arrests, convictions, sentences, parole violations, dismissals and not guilty verdicts committed by any person. Furthermore, information about height, weight, eyes, hair color, identifying marks, possible different names used by such person, possible different dates of birth, different social security numbers used, fingerprint classification, race, and state and federal identification numbers of the person are also provided.

A court is a governmental body consisting of one or more judges who adjudicate disputes and administer justice by law. The room in which a law court sits is called a court room.

Each State will have a court system for the territory under its control, and will have a Supreme Court which is the highest court of appeal in that State.

Besides Supreme Courts, there are also appellate courts, district courts, probate courts, juvenile courts, family courts, the court of common pleas, small claims court, etc.

Besides the state courts, there are also the federal courts (i.e. US Supreme Court, US Courts of Appeals, US District Courts, and Bankruptcy Courts).

When searching for criminal records, you’ll be able to distinguish 3 types:

1. Infraction is subject primarily by state laws, but is not considered a criminal offense, and a fine is typically imposed on those found guilty of an infraction.

2. Misdemeanor is an offense for which a sentence to a term of imprisonment not exceeding 12 months might be imposed. It is punishable by fine or imprisonment in a city or county jail. Misdemeanors are tried in the municipal, police or justice courts. Typical misdemeanors include disturbing peace, petty theft, simple assault, drunkenness in public, drunk driving without injury to others, various traffic violations, and public nuisances.

3. Felony is an offense for which a sentence to a term of imprisonment in excess of one year is involved, and are serious crimes (e.g. murder, rape, burglary). The sentence for a felonious crime under state law will be served in a state prison.

How To Find Your Distant Cousins / Living Relatives

How To Find Your Distant Cousins / Living Relatives 123 People Search

While building your family tree, the traditional genealogy research process normally begins by starting with yourself and your parents, and then gradually progressing generation by generation into the past. Then, when you hit a roadblock in that process, the best way to go ahead is by reversing the process, i.e. start seeking the present – and not pursuing the past.

Yep! Try looking for previously unknown living relatives / distant cousins.

How – you might ask? Well, death notices and newspaper obituaries usually include names of the deceased’s children and grandchildren, synagogue / church / mosque membership, place of burial. And official certificates of death often list place of burial and name a contact who may be a child of the deceased.

Be aware when your relative’s death occurred. If they’ve died early in the twentieth century, their children listed in the obituary as survivors are probably deceased themselves. You could try writing or sending an email to the cemeteries requesting more information, as they may be able to provide to you the name of the relative who purchased the burial plot and they may also give you the names of living descendants.

Your search for obituaries can be assisted on several different web sites. Recent deaths notices are available on Legacy.com, where you can search by US newspaper or the deceased’s name. Older death notices can be found through the Google News Archives site. And the US Library of Congress has a free searchable online database of hundreds of newspapers, starting in 1880.

Several online address and telephone directories may also give you data you’ll need to contact your newly discovered distant relatives (here at Investigations 123), and a Sample People Search Report is provided below.

Once you know your relatives’ names, professional networking sites such as LinkedIn.com and social networking sites such as Facebook.com will help you contacting them through their own internal messaging tools.

In searching for your living relative, you may have other clues that can help your search, such as hobbies or associations your distant cousin was involved with. You might start looking for possible associations through a directory such as www.asaecenter.org. Here you can enter keywords such as “carpenter” or “lawyer” and find potential associations for your relatives search. Happy hunting (from the comfort of your couch)!

Warrants For Arrest Reports: FAQ

Warrants For Arrest Reports: FAQ

An arrest warrant is a warrant issued by and on behalf of the state, which authorizes the arrest and detention of an individual.

Warrants are typically issued by courts but can also be issued by one of the chambers of the United States Congress or other legislatures (via the call of the house motion) and other political entities.

In the United States, an arrest warrant must be supported by a signed and sworn affidavit showing probable cause that:

1. a specific crime has been committed, and
2. the person named in the warrant committed said crime.

Hence, the form and content of an arrest warrant may be similar to the following:

Municipal Court, San Diego Judicial District

To any peace officer of the realm: Complaint upon oath having been brought before me that the crime of larceny has been committed, and accusing John Doe of the same, you are hereby commanded forthwith to arrest and bring that person before me. Bail may be admitted in the sum of $1,000.00. Dated: 1 July 2097. /s/ Judge Snyder, presiding judge.

In most jurisdictions, an arrest warrant is required for misdemeanors that do not occur within view of a police officer. However, as long as police have the necessary probable cause, a warrant is usually not needed to arrest someone suspected of a felony. Laws may vary from state to state, in the US.

Outstanding arrest warrant

An outstanding arrest warrant is an arrest warrant that hasn’t been served.

A warrant may be outstanding if the person named in the warrant is intentionally evading law enforcement, or the agency responsible for executing the warrant has a backlog of warrants to serve, or is unaware that a warrant is out for him/her.

Some states have laws placing various restrictions on persons with outstanding warrants, such as prohibiting renewal of driver’s license or even obtaining a passport.
