the only thing I know about my husbands stepdad is that he is in prision and he was an asshole. Zach didn't talk about him much. when I would ask about him Zach would quickly change the subject and it was basically implied not to talk about him in front of Sam (his brother who came to live with us a year ago, who is 14 now). Zach passed away last april, and I'm obviously worried about bringing it up with Sam.

I know you can see whose in the county jail online.. so I'm wondering if theres a way to do this with prisions?

Call your courthouse and find out how to get that information.   Has Sam asked about his dad or is this just you wanting to know for your own mind?

I'm pretty sure Sam knows why he was arrested, he was living with him then. I'm curious to know. I'm wondering if whatever was going on with that man is why Sam has behavoiral issues. 

Quoting frndlyfn:

Call your courthouse and find out how to get that information.   Has Sam asked about his dad or is this just you wanting to know for your own mind?

local repository, its public information, or your local inmate search, that information is suppose to be publin and is suppose to be accessable online, if you can't find it, call the courthouse.

I second Google.
In my state (michigan) you can Google offender tracking information system. (OTIS) and it will tell you what prison they're in,why they are there and expected release date. Along with their picture and other info.

google your state with the following "inmate search"


it will pull up arrest date, charges, and release date. along with an arrest photo.
