Oh dear.
One of the problems with the internet is that people are rarely who they seem. And how, other than by desperate wishful thinking, do you manage to fall in love with someone you have never met, by e-mail ? What in you made you find an armed robber attractive ? Rather deal with such issues in therapy than pursue a relationship with a man about whom you know nothing except that he is criminal and dangerous.
He could presumably give authorisation for you to be given access to his records and the details of his crime. But why do you think so little of yourself that you want to pursue this ? He's not at all likely to have exaggerated whatever he told you about his sentence ( and he may have committed other crimes for which he was not tried or sentenced ) - so its surely at least as bad as he told you, maybe worse.
