    Default How can I find out if someone was arrested?

    I need to find out if someone was arrested. Any free searches to find out this info? My friend's boss may have been arrested, and he needs to find out.
    Thanks
    Ben

    Check the web to see if the county in which he was arrested has an inmate search. Mine does, that's how I see what all my friends are up to. :D

    Wow, really?

    You ask on an online forum how to check, someone tells you 'check the internet', then you come back and say 'thanks that worked', and that's it?

    At face value, that's at least a little funny :)

    Easiest way to check is to sneak up behind the person and drop a bar of soap. If they run like hell, fair bet they've been arrested before...

    If you really wanna know, just pay for it.

    Keep in mind that these background checks aren't foolproof. They rely on counties to report the info to the state, and since there are a zillion counties in the US (yes, do a national search), there's plenty of opportunity for errors of omission.

    This information is a matter of public record. Many counties have this info available online in the form of a database entry containing a case number. With that case # you can go to your local courthouse records division (or whatever county the information resides) and request to look at the entire case file.

    If the info isn't on-line you need to go to the local courthouse records division and they usually have public computers you can search and get the case # so the clerk can allow you to look at it.

    Most online databases won't have the specific information beyond a case identifying number but they may say DUI, Public Intoxication, Domestic Violence, Drug Possession, Order of Protection, etc., etc., you get the idea.

    This however does NOT mean they were convicted, it shows what they were arrested for, that's why you need to look through the file to see the status of the case. They may never have even been charged.

    Thanks smart ass. The key word was county. That brought me to an actual county website. If you use the word arrest in any search it brings up a bunch of "services" that charge you for public info.
    Thanks Buddy.

    Take it easy...I obviously know that something must have happened between your two posts, but if you just read what was written, it was kinda funny (hence the phrase 'At face value')

    Interesting.

    This is useful especially with regards to DUI and Drug Possession... one of my friends got the latter recently :(

    Wonder how that affects employment...

    It can affect everything from getting a job to getting a house or an apartment if your renting that is, anyone can look up info on you. My brother actually uses these services when he is looking for new tenants for his rentals, Its an easy way to tell what kind of person they are and if it is in your best interest to rent to them.

    Most cities have and internet website, as this information is a matter of public record. If not, your courthouse records room will have an intranet database to find out the information in the court systems as well as the full records for the case.

    More importantly, how can I find out if you've been arrested? Those speakers you build are so awesome, it should be a crime... :D
