The Public Web Docket Sheets option provides access to search, view and print the docket sheets for Pennsylvania's Appellate Courts, Criminal Courts of Common Pleas, Magisterial District Courts and the Philadelphia Municipal Court. In addition, a Court Summary Information report is available for Criminal Courts of Common Pleas and Philadelphia Municipal Court cases.
Cases start in the Magisterial District Court so start to look there. Common Pleas Court is the trial level Court system. Philadelphia has its own system and it starts with Municipal Court.
Search by name and criminal
If you want criminal cases search by participant name and criminal. If you want a traffic search traffic or non-traffic for minor summary offenses. It helps to narrow the search by date of birth and the County.
To much information?
Most people are shocked at how much is available online. If you had a case and received ARD or had the charges dismissed you should look into an expungement. If you were found not guilty definitely get the record expunged. The AOPC does a good job removing an expunged record.
