Community Based Legal Education: A Workshop Series

Community Based Legal Education: A Workshop Series In-Person

Session 2.  Rap sheet/Fingerprinting

To minimize barriers from your arrest and conviction record, you need to know what’s on your RAP sheet – your legal Record of Arrest and Prosecution.  To get a copy of your RAP sheet, one must submit authorized fingerprints to NYS. 

Income-eligible workshop attendees, including those who receive Medicaid or SNAP, will be fingerprinted for free and helped with obtaining their RAP sheet.

  • Photo ID required. Bring a NYS Benefit Card to this workshop or other Photo ID/proof of income
  • Attendees who are not income eligible will be instructed how to obtain their own RAP Sheet from NYS for a small fee
  • All information shared will be kept strictly confidential

All attendees will learn:

  • About rights that pertain to disclosure of RAP sheets
  • How to apply for a copy of a RAP sheet
  • How to maintain confidentiality of conviction records
  • Where to get help if assistance is needed in understanding or correcting a RAP sheet

Registration encouraged, but walk-ins welcome. For more information, call 585-428-8313.
