Do you want to do a “background check” on an employer (individual or corporation), a future or current partner, an employee, a “friend,” or a colleague?
FIRST and FOREMOST: Keep your expectations realistic.  If you expect to find all the data you are seeking in one place, one database, one website, or one-anything, you are gravely mistaken.
We just got a copy of “Wanted! U.S. Cirminal Records: Sources & Research Methodology,” by Ron Arons.  (There are other books on researching public records, too.  They will cure you of any illusion that searching public (and private) records is for the faint-hearted.)

Some of the most difficult cases for lawyers, and social workers and judges, to resolve involve juvenile sex offenders, i.e. sex offenders who are under the age of 18 and very often under the age of 16. Work with juvenile offenders (and juvenile witnesses) is difficult under any circumstances, but sex offense criminal charges add another dimension to the complex equation.

I’ve been working on a juvenile sex-offender bibliography and thought I’d post here what I’ve found so far. I’m sure there are many other resources. These are, of course, in addition to case law and legal treatise resources.
