French term or phrase: le plumitif criminel
This appears in an assessment report for the Department of Corrections.

It's coming from Quebec French and I need the term used in Canada, if anyone knows, or US term.

Il n'a pas de cause en suspens devant les tribunaux, le plumitif criminel est vérifié le 95-07...

I found 'minutes book' and 'record' for "plumitif" but I wanted to check if this is the accused's CRIMINAL RECORD they are referring to or a record of court cases.

The terms appears 3 times in the document, always in the same context referring to the fact that he has no cases pending in the courts

The first definition in LGDT looks like the one you need:

droit

docket (a)
A formal record of all the important acts done in court in the conduct of each case from its beginning to its end. Prentice-Hall Editorial Staff. Legal Secretary's Encyclopedic Dictionary. (Revised by Betty Kennedy Thomae) New Jersey, Prentice-Hall Inc., 1977. 450 p. p. 178. (a)
Note(s): This document includes all papers filed and the decisions rendered for every case heard. When referring to the acts and proceedings of one particular case, the term "record" is often used. (a)

plumitif n m (ab)
Registre dans lequel le secrétaire-greffier mentionne tout ce qui s'est passé lors d'une audience civile ou pénale. (ab)

Synonyme(s):
registre d'audience n m (a)
Note(s): Au Canada, le «registre d'audience» n'est qu'un procès-verbal de l'audience, tandis que le «plumitif» constitue un dossier complet d'une action, comprenant le procès-verbal et les actes de procédure. En France, «registre d'audience» semble être réservé aux cours d'appel et aux tribunaux de grande instance. A noter que l'emploi du mot «record» dans l'expression «record des audiences» est un anglicisme à éviter. Un «dossier» regroupe les renseignements pertinents à une cause en particulier. Il est à noter également que le terme «plumitif» englobe à la fois le sens exprimé en anglais par «docket» et par «minute book». (a)
