record, or rap sheet, is a compilation of an individual's
identification, arrest, conviction (law), incarceration, legal
status, sex offender registration, warrant information, and other
relevant criminal history. In the United States, these compilations
are maintained and updated on the local, state, and federal levels
by various law enforcement agencies. Its primary goal is to provide
a comprehensive criminal history for an individual to be used for
many purposes, including for identification, assistance in
developing suspects in an ongoing criminal investigation, and for
enhanced sentencing in criminal prosecutions.
