Statewide Criminal Records

The Statewide Criminal Records search directly accesses the State's criminal records repository. The Statewide Criminal Records search covers every county in the state and will provide felony and misdemeanor conviction information going back at least 7 years. The statewide criminal records search is a cost-effective way to search for criminal records on an individual who has lived in several counties within a state. Not all states are available for statewide criminal record searches. Please call for details.

Potential Outcome (Result)

Clear:

A search of the state’s criminal records repository records did not find a subject whose identifiers matched the candidate information submitted by the client. Clear means the candidate did not have a record on file – within the scope of the search - at the state repository searched by Info Cubic. It does not mean that the candidate does not have a criminal record anywhere else.

Hit:

A search of the state’s criminal records repository records did find a subject whose identifiers matched the candidate information submitted by the client. The record information will be provided to the client. A hit returns records from the repository searched. It does not preclude the possibility that the subject has additional records in jurisdictions not searched by Info Cubic.

Matching Rules for Identifiers on Records

Criminal searches use a best 2 out of 3 match. Typically we are supplied 3 usable identifiers for an applicant:

  • First and last name (sometimes a middle name or initial)
  • Date of Birth (DOB)
  • Social Security Number (SSN)

The researcher will utilize these identifiers when reviewing the criminal index. A typical match is made using first and last name and DOB. The recent trend has been for courts to withhold SSNs from public indexes due to concerns over identify theft. When present, SSN will be utilized in the match.

FAQ

Q: How do I decide whether to run a county or statewide criminal search?

Both of these searches involve criminal records containing similar misdemeanor and felony conviction information. While both products generally yield the same case information on a subject, your chances of finding criminal record information will be greater if you follow these simple guidelines:
If you are relatively certain your subject was tried for a criminal offense in a particular county, choose that county for a criminal records search. This is where the actual court records are filed and are hand-checked by our qualified court records researcher.

If you are relatively confident your subject was tried for a criminal offense in a particular state, but are unsure of in which county, or if the subject has moved around the state several times, try a statewide criminal search. This search has a much wider geographical focus and will cover every county courthouse in the state. A statewide criminal search is more cost-effective than ordering several county criminal searches.

If you are fairly certain that your subject was convicted of a violation quite recently, then you should order a county criminal search. The biggest difference between statewide and county criminal records has to do with how quickly criminal records are made available. When a person is convicted of a criminal offense the trial takes place at the county level. When a person has been convicted, this court record information is generally filed and made available at the county courthouse shortly after the conviction. However, the county courthouse may not report this criminal record information to the statewide criminal repository for several days or weeks. Each state has different requirements regarding how quickly counties need to report court record information.

Please note: not all states require their county courts to report to their statewide criminal repository. Therefore, statewide criminal record information may not be available in states such as CA, LA, MA, NV, NH, VT, WV and WY.
