PACER — CRIMINAL CHARGES INFORMATION

Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) is an electronic public access service that allows users to obtain case and docket information from Federal Appellate, District and Bankruptcy courts, and from the PACER Case Locator via the Internet. PACER has information on federal criminal charges, federal cases and other federal court case information. Information on criminal charges can generally be found after running a “party” search through the U.S. case party search index. The docket will reflect the criminal charges an individual is accused of. More detailed information about an individual’s criminal charges can be found in the charging instrument, such as the indictment or information. Ordinarily, these documents are retrievable through PACER.

Electronic access is available by registering with the PACER Service Center, the judiciary’s centralized registration, billing, and technical support center.

Each court maintains its own databases with case information. Because PACER database systems are maintained within each court, each jurisdiction will have a different URL. Each court service is comparable to the others; however, the format and content of the information may differ slightly.

PACER is a service of the United States Judiciary. The PACER Service Center is operated by the Administrative Office of the United States Courts.
