Description

Fingerprintable offenses (defined in Criminal Procedure Law §160.10) include any felony, a misdemeanor defined in the penal law, a misdemeanor defined outside the penal law which would constitute a felony if such a person had a previous judgment of conviction for a crime, or loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution as defined in subdivision two of Penal Law §240.37.
