Criminal conviction data

KB article ID: 300

Secondary dispositions such as those resulting from  revoke/vacate supervision/probation judgments (<CriminalDisposition>/Code values in the 600 and 700 series) and appeals ( 800-series) can be tricky to understand.  Because of the complexities of such secondary dispositions, the CourtDataTransferFile schema requires that the court provide "rolled up" indicators of conviction, both at the Charge and LitigantDetails levels.  Among other things, these derived values assist with FCRA requirements on reporting past  non-convictions.

The derived values are provided on an "as is" basis, given the relevant CriminalDisposition element(s), and appropriate guidance on what is deemed a conviction in the court's jurisdiction.  In the event of any conflict, with the derived data, then CriminalDisposition data should govern and the conflict should be brought to the attention of the court.

During an appeal, the derived values should remain unchanged, though a change may be in order upon recording the outcome of the appeal.
