An international law firm wanted to conduct a background check before hiring a new partner. The client contracted Prescient to conduct an executive background check on a potential candidate. According to the client, this candidate came highly recommended.
After research through official criminal records did not yield any information, additional research through commercial databases discovered a match. Prescient reached out to the court directly to uncover additional details.
Information provided by the court indicated the candidate had been arrested and convicted of manufacturing and distributing controlled dangerous substances. Although the candidate held a valid college degree, this degree was completed via mail while he was incarcerated.
As a result of Prescient’s diligent search techniques, previously undiscovered information regarding the candidate’s criminal background and education was uncovered. Prescient’s insights informed the client that their highly-recommended candidate was a previously incarcerated felon, and allowed them to make a more effective hiring decision.
