What does a federal background check uncover?
Federal criminal background checks can reveal federal criminal offenses, such as robbery and kidnapping. They can also uncover sensitive information about illegal dealings in firearms or sexual exploitation of minors. People trying to purchase guns have to undergo a background screening by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Federal criminal background checks offer information about cases that get prosecuted at national courts. All federal crimes get prosecuted in district courts or trial courts. They may be appealed in United States appellate courts. This means that records can come from both appellate courts and district courts.
These checks can uncover details regarding fraud, robbery, tax evasion, embezzlement, and white-collar offenses. Federal background checks are routinely used by hiring managers, employers, and landlords to vet prospective candidates.
