County criminal records are retrieved by hand by our nationwide network of experienced court researchers. The county criminal records search reports felony and misdemeanor convictions, and searches go back at least 7 years per FCRA regulations. This is the most accurate way to conduct a background check for criminal records.

The County Criminal Search is one of the more essential background searches in any pre-employment screening program. It can be used for individual background research as well pre-employment screening needs. It is considered the most accurate and comprehensive criminal background search. To conduct this background check Corra utilizes a team of researchers to access criminal records directly from your local courthouse. This is known in the business as a "hand pulled" criminal search as it is a direct examination of county criminal records rather than a criminal database.

Corra offers the country criminal background check to all employers seeking to run preemployment background screenings on all potential job candidates. Most often these searches are based on the candidate´s residential history for the past seven years. On behalf of the Human Resources Managers that order this particular background search Corra Group sends researchers to the appropriate courthouse where they conduct a comprehensive criminal examinations of both felonies and misdemeanors. The information that is retrieved is then compiled an emailed to the human resource personnel

Felony crimes are generally those crimes where the court can mete out a sentence with a length of at least a year and a day. Misdemeanors are lesser crimes that result in a lighter jail sentence in county jail or no sentence at all. In both felony crimes and misdemeanors the judge may order a fine or financial restitution as party of the penalty. for their review.

Since in there is increasing vigilance in running background checks in the age of Homeland Security, many employers are also running "rescreening" background searches on their current employees. These employment screening updates may reflect significant changes in an employee´s behavior or lifestyle. Detecting any deviation into criminal behavior early, especially on the county level, may significantly reduce vulnerability to employee theft and violence in the workplace, as well as liability concerns.

Corra conducts county criminal background searches in all counties in the United States. Sometimes felony & misdemeanor records are kept in separate locations in the courthouse. In this instance, we will search both file locations.
