What is a Federal Level Criminal Search?
TruDiligence Knowledge Base – Federal Criminal Background Checks
Federal level criminal searches involve candidates and cases which a person was convicted by the United States government in a U.S. District Court.
If a crime occurs over a jurisdictional boundary, such as a state line, no single state may be able to claim authority to prosecute it. In such cases, the complaint is pushed up to the Federal level and is tried in a Federal Courthouse instead of a State or County Courthouse.
Some examples of cases that might commonly be found in Federal Court are:
These searches are conducted using a public access system and are researched court by court. The information returned will consist of the defendant’s name, case number, case type and any available case details. One disadvantage to the federal access system is that the defendant’s identifiers are usually limited to name only.
Therefore, if a match is found, additional research may be required at the court level to confirm a positive identification.
If this is necessary, additional research costs may be incurred.
TruDiligence will contact you and gain approval before taking action that requires any additional research costs.
All criminal searches are per name & per jurisdiction searched.
