Most people charged with crimes are arrested first and fingerprinted. Sometimes, though, the reverse happens and people get warranted and summoned to court without having been arrested. When they are summoned to court for a crime, even if they werent arrested, do they still have to be fingerprinted?
I ask, because people undergo BCI and FBI fingerprints and so, if someone isnt fingerprinted, does their conviction just not show up on the results?

The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts...
People summoned for felonies are generally arrested and processed when they appear and that includes fingerprints. Misdemeanors it’s kind of hit or miss. But BCI records are not limited to fingerprints. Searches can be performed using other information like SSN, DOB, name, and address.
