Clark County Arrest Records Vs. Criminal Records

Criminal records in Clark County show a comprehensive history of an individual's criminal activities, including convictions, charges, and court outcomes. These documents provide a detailed overview of legal proceedings and case dispositions related to criminal offenses.

On the other hand, arrest records specifically document instances where law enforcement officials have taken someone into custody, detailing the circumstances of the arrest, charges filed, and any related booking information. Arrest records may not always result in criminal charges or convictions, making them distinct from criminal records, which show information about the entire criminal justice process from arrest to court resolution.

Arrest records can remain on a person's record indefinitely in Clark County unless sealed or expunged. Individuals may be eligible to have their arrest records sealed or expunged under certain circumstances or upon meeting specific legal criteria.
