what website can i go to, to search free criminal records, sex offender records and background checks for NC?

Best answer:


Criminal Records, Marriage & Divorce Records, Bankruptcies, Evictions, Contact Info, and more...



  1. Criminal records are kept at the county level. I am not familiar with NC, but the records are usually kept in two separate locations as either Misdemeanor and Felony offenses. In Tx for example the misdemeanor records are with the county clerk and the felony are with the district clerk. So you have to base your search by known county(s). Next you have to see if the county has a website that allows these searches for free. If not you will have to call them and make search and fee payment arrangements. Sex offender registration records should be at state level on a free site. You use the term "background checks" and that can encompass a lot of things. If you are talking about civil record checks this is also done at the county level where you find criminal records. Do not fall for pay sites that offer nationwide criminal records searches, they are very limited in information and are missing tons of conviction information. The only thorough check is to do the courthouse searchs where a person has lived. There are pay sites that do these searches. Good Luck

  2. You can go to the link below and at the right of the website where it says services you can click offender search. You can also go on the corner of the page where it says "go to.." on the scroll bar and search for inmate or other services provided there.
