  • Is there a way of finding info about someone convicted in Ohio without them finding out about me?
    If you begin to search, within many of the records out there can be accessed online, you will notice that public records are accessible by anyone without notice to the person in the record. Criminal records which can be found with an online search in many cases, are routinely conducted by the public. Private companies (which have the same public records access as the average person) that conduct background checks, will specify that the person searched is not contacted or notified. Someone can check your records also and you would never know unless it's an employer or other exceptions. But, by general rule, anyone can request your court records and you wouldn't know it and court records are public. Note that public does not necessarily mean they're open and free to everyone. You may have to pay some fees for convenience, or a courthouse visit and copy fees.
