How to Find and Access Connecticut Criminal Records

Connecticut criminal records can be effectively used for thorough research and background checks before potential employment or business ventures, and even social alliances if the need arises. Connecticut criminal records available in government sites reveal that the state has registered high crime rates in robbery, rape, theft and murder.

According to Connecticut Law Enforcement Agency Uniform Crime Reports from 1980 to 2005, the state had a total crime index of 3,232.7 calculated per 100,000 people in the year 2009- a significant figure, given the fact that Connecticut recorded a population of 3,405,565 that year. Incidentally, the state was ranked 36th in the total Crime Index. However, the Crime Index reports show a dipping graph across the years until in 2007 when it reported an index of 2,655.9 per 100,000 inhabitants.

After the merging of the superior court with the court of common pleas in 1978, a single trial court was established that presides over the criminal hearings. There are two divisions in the superior court –Part A and Part B. Generally, Part A courts are located in “Geographical Areas” that once housed the court of the common pleas. Basically, the idea behind the separation of the superior court is to choose, monitor and manage the more important cases effectively.

Connecticut Criminal Records Categories

Criminal Records of CT are generally archived on the basis of the nature of the crime, which can be distinctively divided into three categories. However, different states classify the categories differently, depending on their degree and severity:

Infractions:  These are records of minor offenses related to traffic tickets, public drunkenness, and municipal code violations. The offenders in these cases are subjected to jail terms.
Felonies: As the most serious of the lot, these records provide a background check on criminals who have been sentenced to jail for one year or more, or are on probation.

Misdemeanors: These cases are less severe than felonies. The term of imprisonment is one year or less.

Why Do You Need Criminal Records?
