whitepages.com records search of friends name shows criminal charges

I'm trying to sell a boomstick and he claims he had been charged but nothing came of it and it was expunged

Should I not

Are they recent charges?

Charges are not a conviction.

do you reasonably believe he is a prohibited person?

does he have a  CHL?
have you seen him pass a NICS?
was the charge even a prohibiting crime?

Mention to him that you want to transfer the gun into his name(NICS) and see how he reacts.

in this case I'd do it just to be safe.

It would really help to know your state and the charges.

Pennsylvania

It was when he was starting the divorce process. ..his ex said he pushed her and had a pfa issued against him

Everything got sorted out and he was awarded sole custody of his boy...charges were bogus

Yet another question that could be potentially solved if OP listed the state he/she resided.  Unfortunately, OP will not get a quick answer.  I will not waste anymore time on this.  Good luck!

Transfer it through an FFL if you are that worried.

How good of a friend are talking about?  Like friend since middle school?  Or dude you work with and drink a couple of beers after work with kinda of friend?

At least in TexasI have seen charges remain in databases even when there is no conviction.  Likewise I have seen people surprised that expungement was not a guarantee of their privacy. All kinds of hell can happen because of that.

How common is his name?

My name is fairly common and you should see the piles and piles of shit that shows up if you do one of those searches on me.

That's also why I'm always delayed on NICS checks.  :(
