Getting a CORI
Report of Another Person
email response that I got from the CORI people a couple of months ago
also suggests that it works. Please, those who do try, let us know if
it works or not.
From the time
we receive a Public Access Request via mail, the CHSB staff usually puts
results in the mail to be returned to the requestor within 3-4 business
days. This can fluctuate depending upon current processing volume. Please
remember to allow sufficient time for mail processing and to account for
holidays and weekends also.
CORI is a summary of adult criminal court arraignments (including adult
court appearances for sex offenses), which is defined as criminal court
arraignments from an individual's 17th birthday forward. The
criteria for information to be considered publicly accessible are as
For the adult conviction record to be "publicly accessible" the person whose
record is requested must have been convicted of a crime punishable by a
sentence of five years or more, or have been convicted of any crime and
sentenced to any term of imprisonment, and at the time of the request:
- is serving a sentence of probation or incarceration, or is under the
custody of the Parole Board; or
having been convicted of a misdemeanor, has been released from all custody
or supervision not more than one year; or
- having been convicted of a felony, has been released from all custody or
supervision for not more than two years; or
- having been sentenced to the custody of the department of correction, has
finally been discharged there from, either having been denied release on
parole or having been returned to penal custody for violating parole for not
more than three years.
It is not required to obtain an
individual's signature to request a Publicly Accessible CORI request.
