New York - Department of Corrections - Released

Records in this database: 539130
Last database Update: 2023-02-22 12:00:00.000000

Everyone confined in state prison since the early 1970s is listed in the database, except youthful offenders, those who have had their convictions set aside by a court, and certain previously incarcerated non-violent offenders who are covered by a special provision codified in Correction Law 9, which took effect in 2010 and is explained below. Except for data such as youthful offender records that are specifically made confidential under Criminal Procedure Law 720.35, all conviction, sentence and other information about offenders currently and previously incarcerated with the Department is considered public information under the Freedom Of Information Law and is therefore accessible. Correction Law 752 and Executive Law 296(15) prohibit discrimination in hiring or for the issuance of any license by reason of prior criminal conviction unless: there is a direct relationship between the previous criminal offense(s) and the specific license or employment sought; or the issuance of the license or the granting of the employment would involve an unreasonable risk to property or to the safety or welfare of specific individuals or the general public. When a person has had a conviction reversed, all official records are then sealed pursuant to Criminal Procedure Law 160.50 and, accordingly, the Department deletes all such information from this database.
