Default Find Out Someones Criminal Charges?

Anyone who's been around the site awhile probably knows my dad is a total scumbag. Well he's back in jail. I know one of the charges is violating a restraining order and I want to know what all the other charges are. Also would like to find out the real reasons he's been to jail in the past. I'm tired of all the lying and would be nice to know the truth for once. My friend showed me a site that would give me all that info but it's $40. I'm willing to pay but figured I'd ask first before shelling out money.

It should all be public record, but I don't know how to go about finding it. Check with the court system, but sometimes the info you get isn't very clear.

The court houses here have a computer hooked up to a database where you can search anyone's name, case number, etc. It reveals all the charges that are not expunged. You just walk up and use it free... Recently the whole thing went online and it's all free on the website as well... I know it may not be so convenient in other states, but I would contact your court system first. You may not have to pay so much if anything at all.

I thought stuff like this was public record. Would all the courthouses be connected or would I have to go to each county? It's been several different counties at this point. I've been searching the Ca state website and have yet to find anything helpful.

Well all the counties are grouped in one database here... In Ca, they are separate. I know Stanislaus County in Ca has their database free online, but it has limited info. You might be able to investigate hits further at the court house though. Other counties may have their own online search as well. See what you can do online or call the court houses or just pay the $40 if it's a credible source.

You know what I've been "doing" our local courthouse has a public terminal where you can look names up, free of charge.

Michigan also has OTIS, where you see look on line, if someone has been in prison, probation, has committed any major Crime, I *think* CA would have one as well. You may have to look under corrections. I don't' have to go by every county this way, but CA is much larger than MI, yet......How many prisons could you have With OTIS, sometimes things aren't clear, you may look at something and it may read say "Pot" but that's how it was labeled, you have to click on the codes, that's when it gets tricky. It's usually the last situation they were arrested for.

You can go to the courthouse and request the records, it is public, sometimes they request a docket numbers, but hopefully his name, address, date of birth, an old address would verify it was the right man. Oh, I just reread your post, yes, the terminal that I use is ONLY for THIS county (scary eh).

I found out about the PPO's, simply because it was tied to another case. The worker said they're not usually public (that's strange isn't it! That's what we should know about).

Also, look for your State police web address, sometimes you can get all records for under 10.00, I can't remember what it was here, but it's cheaper than $40.00 and saves so much leg work, of course, you have to print them if you want a hard copy...

What Classified said is correct, sometimes the records are not clear to the layman. I got lucky, I was at the public terminal and a woman that inserts the data helped me. I thought a case had been closed, she looked, no....There are some items that are hard to understand if you don't have legal experience.

I wonder how often this site is update. I wish I hadn't eaten right before I looked. I'm old enough where life shouldn't shock me anymore, but it does.

Wow now that is a freaky site! He doesn't come up under any address which is odd because he is a felon. Quite a few people in my neighborhood. I thought kiddie sex offenders couldn't live near a school.. let alone 2.

Finally found info on the Ca state website "Please contact the clerk's office at the court where your case or record was originally filed." Looks like I'd have to go to each courthouse.. been 3 that I know of. $40 is looking a lot more convenient o_O
