: Traffic offenses are generally reported only if they are criminal in nature, such as a misdemeanor or felony.
Misdemeanors: Misdemeanors are crimes that are less severe than felonies but are generally punishable by fines and/or county jail incarceration.
Felonies: Felonies are serious offenses that may involve prison time.
Criminal background checks do not typically include the following:
Non-convictions: While the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) allows non-convictions to be reported on a background report for 7 years, local laws may prohibit the use and or/disclosure of these records.
Most reporting agencies will not include arrest-only records or situations where charges were dropped, dismissed, or where the individual was found not guilty.
Certain cases may be reported, however, if they resulted in a diversion or deferral program (or similar). [ We may want to add more into this]
Expunged or sealed records
Juvenile records: If the crime was committed while the individual was a minor, and if the crime was adjudicated in a juvenile court, it generally will not be included in a criminal history report.
Civil suits or civil judgments
