Before we begin with Public Arrest Records, please be reminded that arrest records and criminal records are two different types of records. We will be discussing the difference as we go along with this article.
What Are Arrest Records?
If you get arrested, your record of arrest may appear in your background check report. An Arrest is made to prevent a crime but this record does not mean that you are convicted immediately of wrongdoing. This will still be heard in the court and the judge will decide if you are guilty or not.
WILL AN ARREST RECORD SHOW UP ON MY BACKGROUND REPORT?
It is possible that previous arrests may be reflected in background reports. The court reports arrest records the same way the criminal records are being reported but both are different types of records and should not be confused.
Pending case: Arrest has been made and criminal charges already filed. The case is still in the adjudication process and verdict has not been achieved.
Arrest (Non-conviction): The arrested person was not guilty and all charges were dismissed by the court.
Arrest (Conviction): Files criminal charges and the arrested person was prosecuted, found guilty or pleaded guilty.
