Criminal Background Checks & What You Need to Know

When a person is convicted of a crime, such as drunk driving, that charge whether it is a misdemeanor conviction or a felony conviction will appear on your criminal record. Whether you have been convicted of a drunk driving charge or any other misdemeanor or felony charge it is very important that you check your criminal record for inaccuracies.

When someone is convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony all of the information regarding the conviction is entered into a national records database by a data entry person at the courthouse where you were convicted.

The reason you should be very concerned about the information contained in your criminal record is because there is usually nobody reviewing the information entered on your record for accuracy before it is uploaded to the national records database.

Just like inaccuracies on your credit report can keep you from qualifying for a loan, inaccuracies on your criminal record can keep you from getting that new job or affect your ability to pass a tenant background screening check.

If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony you owe it to yourself to run an instant online background check on yourself to verify if the information on your criminal record is accurate and if it is not, get it corrected just like you would on your credit report.
