    If you're specifically looking for county jail (misdemeanors) check the website for the sheriff's office in that county - the sheriff's office's here usually run them and many in FL have online info on those currently incarcerated (last name search in most).

    If you're talking prison (felonies), check the Florida Dept. of Corrections website - they have an online search feature also.

    Most states have websites for Department of Corrections. The Federal Bureau of Prisons also has a website with inmate locator.

    www.bop.gov

    You usually need at least the person's name to do the search though. Although some state sites let you do a search by race and gender, as well as body markings ( tattoos, scars, birth marks).

    As already stated for county jails you would have to look up for those individual counties for there jail websites if they have one.

    If you are doing a background check, use the state department of corrections inmate search feature.

    If the person was recently arrested, check the websites in the appropriate county for the sheriff. Here in Monroe County all arrests with photos are online in pretty much real time.

    Some counties also have arrest warrants online, though they are older ones. You can't normally find out if there is an active warrant for someone unless you are in law enforcement.

    Call the jail(s) he would have been taken to and ask them.
