Some sheriff's offices have websites that let people search for past and current incarcerated persons. Otherwise, call the sheriff's office and request to speak to the jail or records clerk. Provide the person's full name, date of birth and inquire if that person is serving or has served jail time at that facility.

Some jails do not release this information over the phone — if this is the case, request the policy for obtaining such information. If a person was sentenced to jail for a crime, that information will be in that person's court records.

Some counties have their court records online, in which case you can examine a summary of the person's criminal court records and see it contains a sentence to jail time. If these records aren't available online, go in person to the county courthouse and request the person's criminal files from the clerk in the records department. Unless the case involved sexual assault or a minor, criminal files are public record.
