In the State of California the Department of Justice started a program where an individual can look up their criminal history otherwise known as a “RAP SHEET”.
This report covers a full lifetime or 99 years.
It only covers criminal history, not driving violations unless they become known as criminal offenses.
The report will normally have the date of the offense, court where the case was tried, depositions, and what type of crime it was classified as (ie:Misdemeanor or Felony).
The report is sent from Sacramento to the address that is inputted on the form.
The report normally takes 4 to 10 days but can take longer depending on fingerprint clearance and Department of Justice workload.
