What Is Record Sealing In NY?
In the state of New York, record sealing involves hiding an individual's criminal record from the public and removing specific data such as fingerprints, palmprint cards, DNA samples, or booking photos from the record. Although the record may still exist for authorities, the public will not have access to it. This allows individuals who completed a prison sentence to start fresh and get back on their feet and grants them the eligibility for careers that they may not have been able to pursue due to their criminal records. Our attorneys will be able to answer specific questions that you may have regarding your case and will help determine whether you are eligible for record sealing in NY.
