Challenge: Applying for your Criminal Record

People have a right to their criminal record, but it's not always easy to get. Let's fix this.


Your criminal record, also known as your rap sheet, is the legal document which includes your complete history in the justice system.

Getting a copy of your criminal record is the first step in many important justice system processes, like getting your felonies expunged. It can be difficult to obtain a copy as the process differs by county. We believe getting your record should be as easy as getting your credit score.

Activities for this challenge

To get started, search Google for “<my county> criminal record”. These records are usually controlled by county court houses. 

Use your local courthouse website to complete any of the following activities. These tasks will require your awesome user experience, research, and design skills.
