    It can't be so easy to find that one, google giving different types of punishments to sites, some site wont get indexed in google, some may drop in rank for few keywords and some loose there page rank.
    Since you gonna check for expired domain you can simply search your domain name in google (yourdomain.com).
    If you can find your domain on search results, that domain is good to buy.

    If Google has penalized the site even if you buy it, It would be hard to get back with SEO. Keep that in mind.

    I don't think you need more than this to know about a domain.

    You should not have anything to worry about if you do not make any black hat seo.
    If the owner dumped it, meaning deactivate it, than it should have got off the sandbox.
    I would also to suggest make a trademark research of the website, he may have also got a cease letter and he would have been forced to deactivate it.

    Google essentially resets the counter when domain ownership is obviously transferred.
