Tips for Backgrounding Court Cases

  1. Check the web for stories, but don't use anything that you don't verify independently.

  2. See if your guy has a history. Conweb can help with those convicted of felonies in Montana.

  3. The county's jail roster lists people being held pending the outcome of their cases.

  4. Get the records. You can look up felony records at the clerk of district court's office. You can check misdemeanor records with the clerks in lower courts: Justice Court for Missoula County cases, Municipal Court for city of Missoula cases.
