Check Criminal Records

Checking criminal records is a sensitive issue. Checking criminal records is a good example of a prescreening process that helps promote safe hiring. The data contained in criminal records is used for criminal sanctions and to figure out the reliability of a person. A check of criminal records is standard procedure when due diligence research is conducted on individuals. Access to criminal records is a powerful tool for protecting your business and family. However, checking criminal records is something of a specialty in itself, and most human resources personnel are not qualified to conduct thorough checks. Making it contractual to regularly check staff for criminal records is one way of ensuring employees does not slip through the net.

The need to check references and criminal records is something you may have considered in the past but felt might be too costly or just unnecessary. One of the best ways to find criminal records is by looking in local areas, towns, and counties. For most employers, information about criminal records is an important concern. Contact with organizations that offer information about the employment and support of people with criminal records is helpful. To identify a person’s entire public criminal record or history of past offenses, a nationwide check of public criminal records is in order. Discrimination against people with criminal records is, usually, legal. Currently, over 6000 private organizations have access to individuals’ criminal records.

Keeping and organizing criminal records is the responsibility of each individual state. In addition, misuse of access to criminal records is a class B misdemeanor. A review of state criminal records is likely to yield only convictions that occurred within that state. Anything other then a county courthouse check for criminal records is risky. Getting criminal records is the number one method for researching the criminal background of any person you may meet.

In 41 states, people accused or convicted of crimes have the legal right to rewrite history. Some states include criminal records from more than one major public criminal records source, and most records are updated monthly. Some states and counties limit or outlaw distribution of criminal records by private companies. Not all states allow public access to statewide criminal records information. Note, some states charge for the access of their database. In those states where statewide records are unavailable or unreliable, checking criminal records at the county level is a must. Some states provide multiple database searches. Note: Subject’s full name and date of birth is needed; a few states also require SSN. Also, many states require certain types of employers to screen job applicants with criminal records for specific convictions.

Concern about fairness drives some states to consider laws that erase criminal records. Today, 29 states in the United States keep criminal records check repositories that are open to the public. There is no nationwide system that combines court records from all 50 states. Ohio is one of the many states in the country to mandate criminal records checks.

If you are not sure how to begin checking criminal records contact your state, county, and local governments for help. Visit state, county and local government web sites. But do check criminal records. Do not skip this step in your hiring of new employees.

Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss statistics from the National Employment Law Center showing that 1 in 4 adults in the United States has a criminal record. The ACLU argues that employers are discriminating against employees on this bases because a disproportionate number of those with records are African American (and non-violent drug offenders).

    to have a crimminal record, you must have been convicted of something, not necessarily go to prison. also, even if you are not convicted, charges like shoplifting will still be on your criminal record, just not as a conviction. if you have anything on your criminal record (which you can acquire from your state’s DPS) you can fill out some papers and have it expunged which will erase it from your record and make it illegal for anyone to even mention.

  • Kim j:

    No, you can get one for a dwi as well or shoplifting anything you have been convicted of.

    Criminal Record comes from a time when Rick Wakeman’s musical creativity was at its peak – during the 80s he didn’ write much that came up to the same levels, with the exception of ‘1984’.

    Rick recorded this album right after he rejoined Yes in 1977 and they had completed Going for the One at Montreux in Switzerland. Chris Squire and Alan White both volunteered to play on Rick’s album and recorded their parts after he had laid down the keyboard tracks and gone home, an unusual arrangement but I guess it was Rick’s album so he got what he wanted. It doesn’t seem to matter – it all seems very integrated, especially on a track like Crime of Passion with Squire’s trademark melodic bass well to the fore.

    It’s only six tracks, based upon a theme of crime and punishment. Like Six Wives, the theme is really a vehicle to tie the album together rather than a true exploration of the concept as in the Arthur, Journey or No Earthly Connection albums. However it doesn’t matter how loose the theme is, the music is very tight, very innovative and Rick’s writing and arrangements show a lot of maturity and depth.

    The outstanding track is the last one, Judas Iscariot, a grand, soaring piece which explores the tragic nature of the man and his circumstance. Wakeman uses the Vevey church organ which appears on Going for the One to great effect – its lavish pipes rumble everywhere on this track and others. I especially like the blend of church organ and Moog, where the two instruments appear to imitate each other, with Rick using the piano for tonal contrast or emphasis instead – it’s unusual in that you’d expect piano and church organ together with Moog as contrast, but this is quite a different effect.
    Rick uses choir to give a pastoral and valedictory feel to the piece and his piano lilts are exquisite. There’s a certain five-note chromatic run repeated during this track which gave rise to conjecture that Andrew Lloyd Webber had pinched it and incorporated it into Phantom of the Opera, which was released in 1980. Not only the melody but the entire operatic feel of the song is very Phantom-ish – or Phantom is very Judas-like! You’ll notice it immediately, however despite dark mutterings the lawsuit didn’t prosper (Lloyd Webber probably had better lawyers anyway. . .)

    Judas is the best track but that is not to denigrate the other five. The opening track, Statue of Justice, is an abstract piece of genius, fresh and innovative and alive, and a departure from Wakeman’s usual style, which is a nice surprise. Really there isn’t a bad track at all. Crime of Passion is lush and romantic, Birdman of Alcatraz delicate and the Breathalyser quirky and humorous. Probably Chamber of Horrors is my least favourite but that’s only cos it’s not as brilliant as the others.

    What’s good about this album is the balance of keys, other instruments and voices – nothing seems to dominate, and Rick’s trademark keyboard runs seem essential to the pieces rather than there for their own sake, a crime of which he is guilty on a few occasions elsewhere in his career (like going to see a movie with special effects, rather than a special effects movie, if you know what I mean.)

    One of Wakeman’s best. Everything incorporated here that he is brilliant at doing, and nothing that he is no good at all at doing (e.g. lyrics, vocalists!) It’s tight and gets better with repeated listenings.

    FANTASTIC VOYAGE – MASTERPIECE!!!, October 7, 2007

    Finally, after many years of legal issues (or something like that) it’s re-released this fantastic album from the best classical-rock keyboardist of all times, with 6 well-timed tracks, this album inspires everything, each composition transports you from crazy to misty, dark to mellow, happy to sad atmospheres and for the art-rock and progressive fan it’s a delightful combination of complex rythms and structures that in my humble opinion equals those of Six Wives of Henry VIII… underrated masterpiece of Symphonic Rock.
