Yes and NO – Yes, it might very well mean the applicant has no criminal records. However, the answer could be NO- They could have a record in a state or county that is NOT included in the search or the there could be a recent conviction (last 30 – 90 days) or more or a pending charge and that has not yet been adjudicated.
There are several reasons why no records might be found.
- The information entered was incorrect information like a misspelled first or last name and/or the incorrect date of birth.
- The search was conducted by name and date of birth; but available public records do not associate this name and/or date of birth with the record.
- The subject searched is a minor and we do not search juvenile records.
- A nickname was provided and court records use the subject’s full legal name, not nicknames. The best example is submitted Bill for your applicants first name when his legal name as shown on his drivers license in William.
