    So I am freaking out b/c a school corporation just emailed me saying my Expanded Criminal History Check which included fingerprinting came up rejected!!!!

    What does this mean and how could it happen? The only run in I have with the law was a car accident 4 years ago, and I was sued for damages. That wouldn't make a history check come up rejected. I know when I was getting fingerprinted one of my pinkies wouldn't pick up on the scan.

    OMG!! What am I suppose to do? This is freaking me out help friends!!!!

    I have hard to print fingers. The state patrol had to do them 3 times before they sent them to the fbi because they couldn't read them..... maybe it has nothing to do with your past, but all to do with the quality of prints.

    The lady at the school corporation just told me that one girl had to take them 3 times before they came up b/c of faulty machinery. So do I have to pay another 43 bucks to get another one

    This happens. Call them back and tell them that this is impossible. Then, tell them that you will happily go to have your finger printing done again because you KNOW that this is not possible. All the best and don't freak out. It is probably just some computer glitch.:)

    I think your prints themselves were rejected because of the quality.

    In the car accident, if there were no criminal charges against you, then it's not on your record. A lot of people confuse civil cases for criminal cases. If you were sued by the other person in the car accident, that was a civil case and would never show up in a criminal background check. Even if you lost and had to pay damages.

    Prints getting rejected are more common than people think. I, too, have heard about many people having to do them multiple times. Don't worry.

    Welp I went down and got them redone for free...and yup it is common. Sorry for the minor freak out, but anything that may hold up an interview/job or whatever would not be good right now hahaa

    I've had it happen to me. It happened when they used ink & when of the prints smudged. Why couldn't they have noticed it when they did it? I don't fingerprint well. I don't relax enough I guess.

    I have taken prints from hundreds of people during my law enforcement career. It is probably the print quality. The rejection rate for ink rolled prints is VERY high. The digital method cut back on the rejection rate but did not totally eliminate the need to occasionally reprint someone.

    If you have no criminal history, then it is in all probability the quality of the prints.

    Districts still use inked prints?

    I've only ever had them done on digital scanners that verify the print before sending them. I had mine today (and I've never been charged either!) and some of them had to be scanned a few times.

    My last fingerprinting I was inked and digitally scanned and they still were rejected. The FBI had to review my file. I guess I have hard to print fingers.
