What is Federal Criminal Search?
Federal criminal search is also known as federal criminal history or a federal criminal record search. It is conducted to dig out criminal information about an individual in the records of a specific federal district court. The federal cases usually include crimes involving federal laws, cross state boundaries and committed on federal property. A Federal Criminal Record Search searches for offenses against federal law by district from one of the 94 Federal District Courts nationwide. Federal violations generally will not appear in either a county, nationwide or statewide criminal check, when searched for offenses against state law. Federal offenses can be very grave involving bank robbery, drug trafficking, embezzlement, interstate transportation of stolen goods and kidnapping.
