Perpetrators may have used various names when they committed crimes, so a name-based search may reveal little or nothing about the individual. The Rhode Island arrest record that you receive may include convictions, felonies, sex offenses, parole and probation violations that could help you make a decision about allowing a person to work for your company, watch your home, care for your children or become a love interest in your life.
