Are Criminal Records Public In Wyoming?

Yes, according to Wyoming’s Sunshine Act, anyone can request a criminal record. While the standard for criminal record collection and storage varies from county to county, the majority of criminal documents are organized in a central repository managed by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI). The Wyoming DCI processes fingerprint-based requests for criminal records only.

Criminal records, considered public in the United States, are made available through some third-party aggregate sites. Searching with third-party websites is often easier as the information is not limited to geographic record availability. Information found on third-party websites can serve as a jumping off point for parties searching for a specific record or multiple records. Typically, requesters must provide the following information to gain access to these records:

  • The record subject’s name, unless the subject is a juvenile.
  • The record subjects’ last known location, including cities, counties, and states.

Third-party websites offer these search services, but they are not government sponsored. Availability of records may vary.

What Are Parole Records In Wyoming?

Wyoming parole records provide information on inmates who have been considered for early release from a prison sentence by the Wyoming Parole Board after serving a portion of the sentenced term. Considerations for early release include the rehabilitation of the offender and the reasonable chance that they will be law-abiding and pose no criminal risk or danger to themselves and the community. Parole is a form of supervision, and the parolee must avoid acts of parole violation to remain free from incarceration.

Parole is essentially the trust of the court that a convicted criminal will behave responsibly and not break any laws while granted their freedom. It is also a chance for the inmate to prove they have been rehabilitated, and are eligible for early release. This is meant to act as an incentive for long-term inmates to act accordingly.

What Are Probation Records In Wyoming?

Probation records contain information on the sentence of the court, suspending or canceling a possibility of jail or prison time. For instance, a person who has been sentenced to probation instead of jail time of up to three months may remain within the community and serve their sentence, unless they engage in acts of probation violation, and may then be required to serve the suspended jail time of 3 months. Probation is granted in accordance with Wyoming Laws and based on a pre-sentence investigation report which helps guide the sentencing court on the appropriate sentence or alternative order with regards to the defendant’s case.

In Wyoming, probation is separated into different levels of supervision from level 1 to level 4 and level 5 supervision being people remanded in jail. The level of supervision imposed on an offender may depend on the gravity of the offense committed and the criminal history of the offender. Supervision is also a joint effort between the judiciary and the Bureau of Community Supervision under the Adult Community Corrections Boards.

Offenders under level 1 are the least supervised under the least restrictions and are usually first-time offenders who are low-risk re-offenders. The probation office might require them to make restitution and /or pay a fine. Level 1v probationers are usually under house arrest with electronic monitoring, direct surveillance, or a residential treatment center.

What Are Juvenile Criminal Records In Wyoming?

Juvenile criminal records are documents containing details and information on criminal behavior, activities of persons considered youths in Wyoming, and the consequences dealt out to them by a juvenile court. Persons below the age of 18 are not considered criminals under Wyoming laws, rather, the courts adjudicate them as delinquents and remand them to a juvenile detention center.

The aim of the juvenile court is to rehabilitate juveniles, which are described as amenable. Unless the court believes the youth is not amenable or they have committed serious crimes such as murder, rape, kidnapping, they may be transferred to the Superior court to be tried as an adult.

Juvenile records including arrests, charges, and adjudications remain on the youth’s record even after they have turned 18. They must formally apply for an expungement, if they are eligible, to have the juvenile records removed. Once an expungement order is granted by the court, the Bureau of Identification is notified and all arrest records, police, court, and electronic records relating to the adjudication of the juvenile are put in the care of the Bureau to ensure it remains sealed with no chance of its release, except as permitted by the law.
