An arrest record, sometimes called a criminal rap sheet, is a compilation of arrests that happened in the past due to suspected criminal activity. It may also reveal information that shows whether a person has been:
– Taken into custody
– Held for investigation
– Charged with an offense
– Tried for an offense
Common information that you will see in an Oklahoma arrest record are listed below
– Full name
– Known aliases
– Past arrests
– Current pending charges
– Acquitted charges
– Dismissed charges
It is important to know the difference between an arrest record and your overall criminal record. One main difference is that an arrest record may show that you have been arrested, but not convicted of any crime.
The easiest way to get a copy of your Oklahoma arrest records is to visit the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) website. Once there, you will see a big link in the middle of the page: Request a Criminal History Report. When you click on this link, you will be directed to another page which will provide two more links which will allow you to either choose a Name-based search or a Fingerprint search.
A named-based search will allow you to handle everything online and from home. You will have to print out an Oklahoma Criminal History Request Form which is provided on the OSBI website. From home, you can submit the request by fax or mail. You can also submit it in person if you are near their office in Oklahoma City.
For a fingerprint-based search, you will have to arrange fingerprinting services with your local Oklahoma police department or sheriff’s office. The OSBI does not provide fingerprinting services so you must do this locally. Once your fingerprints are completed, you will follow the same steps as the name-based search.
The fees for a name-based search is $15 and a fingerprint search is $19.
