Q: where can I find info on when and where a murder trial will be tried? Pulaski AR
by anonymous
A:Court calendars show upcoming cases up for trial. Oklahoma has an electronic case access system through their state judiciary website. It is important to know where the incident took place as it will shed light on which court's jurisdiction the case falls under. Police reports are sometimes open to public requests for a small fee. Court clerks maintain their own websites where their services are listed. Larger counties will have more services available to the public. If it is recent enough, you can use the crime mapping to locate the incident, a crime of that degree should be easier to locate.

Q: Is is more difficult to get public records today?
by Steven Arlen

The straight forward answer is that in some ways it easier to get records and others more difficult.
The two forces pulling legislation is between privacy versus transparency. Each have their own advocates, groups and other interested parties along with plenty of arguments on both sides. On one end we would like to enjoy privacies every individual should have, while demanding transparency of our government and its multitude of agencies, officials and various documents. The last part, various documents, is where the two camps often cross paths. You can invade a person’s privacy while obtaining public records as documents can contain information we as individuals would not like others to see.

The vulnerability of private information

Sensitive personal information can be found in a variety of public records held by different government agencies and you do not need to search for long before coming to this realization. It has become common wisdom to search your own name to see what is out there about all of us, legally and readily available, which also means without notice to the person being searched. The policies protecting records such as driving history and credit checks does not apply to large number of information held by other agencies. Privacy advocates have a good point when it comes to arguing erroneous information about a person, posing questions such as “where is the credibility and accountability?” “how easily and quickly can the erroneous data be removed?”. There are good points on both sides, but the biggest recent boost to privacy advocates arsenal has been identity theft.

The argument from transparency advocates

On the opposite end is government transparency. The priority is sought by both privacy as well as transparency advocates. Since we can not pass legislation for each document, we have statutes which try to cover as many scenarios as possible. Just as privacy advocate groups have identity theft to use as a strong popular argument, transparency advocates have headlines such as Eric Snowden and the NSA wiretaps. There is overreach from both sides to secure their position with legislatures. Transparency advocates seek accountability and see their proposed policies as a major tool to fight against department abuses. Amongst all the debate, one must realize that they’re viewing information which may not have come directly from a government source. That is even a greater factor due to the information we divulged out there on the internet. Information you make public on social media sites for example can be shared and viewed in other places. Image the impression a future employer or colleague would have of you when viewing your personal Facebook page.

Who should be held responsible?

We already have legislation outlawing abuses on either side, whether privacy concerns or transparency. Agencies have a duty to protect private non public information about individuals and must be held accountable when they aren’t. The custodian of the record is the first defense against identity thieves and other abuses. Factors such as mismanagement, lack of oversight makes is realistic and a serious issue. How much should agencies be reasonable held accountable for? Information can be stolen from any source holding data, not solely from government agencies, so only a fair amount of expectation is reasonable. Responsibility is easy to find since the law is clear on guidelines, however, the balance between privacy and transparency is the ultimate resolution.

Q: Can anyone get a rap sheet?
by Public post
A:RAP sheet stands for Records of Arrest and Prosecution. It’s a record of past criminal activity and the information is available in several forms from various agencies and private entities. Each can have their own policies regarding public access. The criminal past of an individual can be found in obvious places and some that are hidden from persons not familiar with where to look. Places where you can get criminal records are court/criminal division or clerk, background checks from some local and most state law enforcement, FBI, private background check companies and more. These will generally not show arrest information lacking a conviction. However, jail lists, booking sheets, inmate look ups offer information of the recently arrested. Local police and sheriffs offer information about requesting an arrest report. Policies of their availability vary from one state and its department to another. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is federal and each state has their own individual set of statutes pertaining to open public records. With a large majority of law enforcement agencies maintaining a website to serve its citizens, knowing where and how to request arrest information is made available. Inmates databases from certain local and state jail facilities are free and open to the public. You can get more data from court filings.

Q: when was jennifer chappell arressted?
by chan
A:Arrest records can come from the police agency that responded to the incident. Depending on the department and location, this type of record can be requested directly. An incident, crash, accident report or similar documentation can also contain the information you are seeking. More information can come out from local newspapers and their archived stories. So government sources are not the only options. Although a simple online search may not reveal any good sources at first, it can result in finding the sources in which are helpful, it's just that their content does not rank high enough for you to see it. This is where an extensive search can make a difference.

Q: How are the states doing comparatively in their unemployment ranks and numbers?
by adwrks
A:Latest numbers from the bureau of labor statistics reported in its latest finding released on July 20th shows 27 states with rising unemployment, 12 states that had no change and 11 states along with the District of Columbia doing better for June 2012. Comparing to last year, 47 states and the District of Columbia are experiencing better employment numbers with 3 states experiencing a rise in their unemployment rate. The largest one month rise in employment was in California adding thirty eight thousand jobs with Ohio adding 18,400 jobs and North Carolina with 16,900 jobs. For the same period, the worst was Wisconsin losing 13,200 jobs, thereafter Tennessee losing 12,100 jobs and Maryland losing 11,000 jobs. But When looking at the percentage of rising employment, the picture is quite different. Alaska added one percent to its workforce making the number one state in rising employment. South Dakota and North Dakota are number two and three for the month of June in the best percentage employment gain. The largest decrease in percentage still has Wisconsin at the top 3 after new Mexico and Vermont. Even percentage statistics can be misleading as the West has still the worst unemployment with a 9.4 percent unemployment in June. The ranking or order of best and worse keeps changing as some of the terms are different. Although the west has the worse unemployment, Nevada’s unemployment is at 11.6 in June, with Rhode Island second at 10.9 and California third with 10.7
