Federal Criminal Records

Info Cubic's Federal Criminal Records search accesses the highest federal court in the district, ordered to identify criminal convictions on federal charges

The Federal Criminal Records search accesses the highest federal court in the district, ordered to identify criminal convictions on federal charges including, but not limited to, securities and tax law violations, immigration violations, embezzlement, terrorism, weapons violations, interstate drug crimes and civil rights violations. Info Cubic offers a wide range of scoping options to suit any client’s needs and/or requirements. The leading practice is to search all provided and developed names and jurisdictions for the past 7 years.

Did you know

Some of the most serious crimes will not appear on a county or statewide criminal search because they were charged at a federal court. Federal crimes are those that involve a violation of the US Constitution or a law passed by US Congress, as well as those crimes that cross state lines where state jurisdiction is unclear. Examples of federal crimes include carjacking, aircraft hijacking, mail fraud, damaging or destroying public mailboxes, kidnapping, child pornography, obscenity, credit card fraud, tax evasion, counterfeiting, identity theft, bank robbery, federal hate crimes, racketeering, computer crimes, violations of the Espionage Act, a violation of the US Patriot Act, illegal wiretapping, art theft from a museum, and immigration offenses.

Recommended for

Federal crimes tend to be very serious in nature; therefore, we strongly recommend the Federal Criminal search for important, high-ranking positions. In addition, the Federal Criminal search will reveal serious "white-collar" crimes, making it a vital search for financial, executive,  and managerial positions.

Information Required

  • Applicant Information – Name, date of birth, and address history
  • Applicant AKA – Additional names that an applicant’s record might be filed under (maiden names, nicknames, etc.)

Results Guidelines

Our researchers utilize several identifiers to ensure the maximum possible accuracy when reviewing the information housed in the applicable federal court. A typical match is made using the first and last name, along with the applicant’s date of birth. Generally, courts on this level have begun withholding Social Security Numbers (SSN) from the public indexes due to concerns over identity theft. If the SSN is available with the record, it will also be used to ensure a match. Consultation with a qualified legal counsel is recommended for all employment law matters.
