Update Your Department of Justice Report.

Known formally as a California Criminal History Summary Report or informally as a Department of Justice (DOJ) report, DOJ report, or Livescan, this document is the main source of information regarding a person’s criminal record within the state of California.  This is because courts, police departments, and county sheriff agencies report isolated arrests, case outcomes or “dispositions,” and various forms of post-conviction relief such as an expungement or 1203.4 dismissal to the Department of Justice in Sacramento. The DOJ then adds this information to your report.

This report is not always accurate, however. Sometimes a police or sheriff departments fails to report that an arrest was merely for detention only, suggesting you may have been convicted or charged for a crime when you weren’t. Other times, a court clerk may fail to report the outcome on your case accurately, implying you were convicted of a felony rather than a misdemeanor. And so on. These mistakes can have disastrous consequences for your employment clearance, license application, and can lead to loss of civil rights or gun rights.

An Error In Your DOJ Report Can Cause Major Headaches

Shea M. Randall

Founding Attorney

If you have ever faced a problem because of an error on your DOJ report, or if you have ever tried to fix an error on a DOJ report, you will know that it can be a real frustration. Updating the record with the DOJ can take months and in the meantime you could face scrutiny of your licenses or potentially even lose a government clearance or your civil rights.  

While we cannot stop the frustrations that arise from the DOJ report error, we can be there to help make the update as trouble-free as possible.  

How Do We Determine if Your DOJ Report is Inaccurate?

We have seen thousands of background reports so we know what we are looking for on a DOJ report.  We can quickly tell if something looks amiss. We also do a deeper review to make sure that your DOJ report matches what you remember happening and actual court records.  

We also know what should show on your DOJ report.  Because your DOJ report is the official criminal history record and not accessible to just anyone, certain things will show on your report such as expunged cases, warrants, and certain licenses.  These cannot be removed from your DOJ report. However, even agencies that are able to request your DOJ report will not be able to see everything that shows on your report. This will specifically depend on what the agency is allowed to see.

 

What Can Be Done If My DOJ Report Has an Error?

We have dealt with this many times.  You have three main steps in the process:  

  1. Direct Agency Updates.  A direct agency update is when you contact the agency in charge of reporting the correct information in order to obtain the desired update.  Some agencies are more amenable to this than others.
  2. Direct DOJ Report Updates.  This process often fails if the DOJ is unable to verify with the agency and if the DOJ does not have scanned records of the case.  You never know what the DOJ has on file, so submitting a DOJ report update is a good step to take.
  3. Lawsuit.  If all else fails, you can take the case in front of a court and even ask for attorneys fees for your trouble.  We know the process and are willing to fight for our clients even if the agency and DOJ deny our requests.

We always start at the beginning and move our way down as needed.  We have updated numerous records and have the experience to know what to do to get you the results as fast as possible while keeping your costs manageable.
