I was arrested last year and charged with 2 felonies and 1 misdemeanor. I received a court date for my misdemeanor and had the charge dismissed however I still haven’t recieved a court date for my 2 felonies (misdominor was handled at the city court and felonies are being handled by the county) . I recently started a new job that required finger printing and a background, however I passed both. My question is why isn’t my arrest and pending charges showing up on background checks or the county court records website? I’ve even looked on the DPS website and can’t find any record of my arrest, is there a reason for that?
Call the District Clerk of the county where you were arrested and see if your felony cases are scheduled to be presented before the Grand Jury. You may also contact the intake department of the District Attorney's office and inquire about the status of your cases. Calling a local attorney may help.
