What Is A Indiana Criminal Record?

A criminal record serves as a record of information on an individual’s criminal activity. This can include instances of police arrests, convictions, and court records. This information can be used for numerous reasons by state, federal and local government bodies. For example, law enforcement can help find individuals in unsolved criminal acts by matching fingerprints. Criminal conviction records can be useful for courts in deciding sentences for those who repeat crimes. For the public and businesses, criminal records have become the go-to report when it comes to doing background checks. Background checks could be used to see if job seekers or perhaps the new babysitter has a criminal record.

When someone participates in burglary, it means that they have gotten into or tried to enter a home or building with the express objective of removing other individuals possessions in theft.

Robbery in Indiana

Assault/Battery in Indiana
It is a fine line which distinguishes between assault and battery. When a person is placed in fear that they might be harmed, say for example a individual draws back to punch them in the face, then it’s assault. Having said that, if an individual is punched, then it falls under the battery charge.

DWI/DUI in Indiana

Types of Arrest Records in Indiana

Indiana Infractions Records
Infraction offenses are simply modest violations that typically come with a fine rather than a jail sentence. These could also be identified as petty crimes, with respect to the circumstance. Infractions include traffic violations like speeding, parking errors, noise violations, littering, and disobeying building codes. If somebody commits an infraction, they are often facing fines but these violations have the least impact on their lives over-all.

Indiana Misdemeanor Arrest
The primary difference between a misdemeanor and a felony depends on the magnitude of punishment which can be carried out, as specified by the legal guidelines of individual states. Typically, criminal acts with possible jail sentences as high as 12 months are categorized as misdemeanors, in contrast to felonies are often defined as criminal acts with a possible jail sentence of more than a year. A judge may make the decision on whether a crime is viewed as a misdemeanor or a felony.

Indiana Felony Arrest
Felonies are substantial offenses. The violations may be violent or nonviolent in nature, but these are more extreme illegal acts that will be punishable by incarceration. When there’s a sentence of more than 12 months in county jail or a federal prison facility, then it falls within this classification.

Indiana Juvenile Arrest
Teenagers and older adults that got in trouble with law enforcement as minors quite often wonder whether or not they’re able to have their records sealed or expunged. Oftentimes, sealing or expunging a record is totally possible. Having said that, in certain states, there is an obvious distinction between the two terms. Sealing records signifies that they’ll be tough for other people to access. Expungement conversely involves destroying or removing them from the record altogether.

Indiana Arrest Warrant
If somebody has a warrant out for his or her arrest, it signifies that it has been issued by a judge or magistrate. The warrant is issued as an agreed upon and sworn affidavit that offers proof that a crime has been committed and that the person is assumed accountable. When a police officer gets an arrest warrant, they’re supposed to then go and arrest the person so they can be transported to jail. Most arrest warrants are needed when a crime has been perpetrated but it was not directly observed by a law enforcement officer.

Difference Between Prison vs Jail Arrests in Indiana
A prison sentence and a jail sentence deviate in that jails are usually used by area administrators for temporary holding purposes whereas prisons are utilized for long-term sentences. Jails are sometimes additionally utilized for criminals expecting trial.

Certain cases or conviction records may be expunged or sealed. Certain protocols pertain to expungements in each state, and just what can and cannot be sealed will vary. Normally, it is no challenge to expunge misdemeanor offenses, however, it is more challenging to have felony records sealed. If someone demands a background check in the future, the criminal conviction records aren’t going to be devolved.
