Question How do I find out when someone was convicted?

Somebody given me an inmates name and number and insist's the guy has been in forever, but something doesn't seem right to me.
The person who gave me the info has a number starting E*****, this other guy has a number starting HC****.
To my way of thinking, the HC**** number is a much newer inmate number, how would I find out how long he has been in?
If I can find out this, it will reassure me as to whether my gut feeling is on target or not.Anybody got any ideas how I would do this with PA DOC?

Doc will not give you that info. But I worked in the system and if he has a number starting with E*** then he's been down 7 plus years. And a number starting with H*** he just went in a few months ago.
I hope that helps

Male inmates originally only had one letter in front of their numbers. The DOC ran through the whole alphabet, then added an A to the front of all existing numbers, and then started with BA, BB, etc. I usually judge time in by my son, who was a DE, & arrested in 1995. Guys who start with H are brand new. The one catch to this is that some guys finish one sentence and start over a new one with a brand new #, without ever leaving the prison. That COULD be the situation in your scenario.

This will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the conviction short of spending the cash on transcripts...

whoops, no URLs till I get 25 posts... Ok, do this, Google search for these words and it should be on top:

pa court docket search

it'll start with ujsportal.pacourts

I hope that helps...

Thanks all for your help.
The only reason I wondered about it was my fiance asked me to do him a favour and the things he was telling me about the other guy just didn't add up.I'll take a look and see what I find.

lostful, I was going to suggest that site as well! It tells you about what motions were filed, trial date, charges and sentence date. I am not quite sure about the letters, my baby is an E and he went down in late 2000.
