To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:
I seek all criminal records relating to the late AUDREY MUNSON, born 8 June 1891, died 20 February 1996, social security number 082-42-0284.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Dear Mr. Bone:
This is in response to your Freedom of Information Law (“FOIL”) request for criminal records pertaining to Audrey Munson.
Should such record exist, please be advised criminal history record information (CHRI) maintained by the Division of Criminal Justice Services (“Division”) is exempt from FOIL disclosure pursuant to Public Officers Law (“POL”) §87(2)(a) which provides for the denial of records specifically exempted from disclosure by statute and on unwarranted invasion of personal privacy grounds pursuant to the provisions of 9 NYCRR §6150.4 (see, POL §87[b]).
Only entities qualified pursuant to Article 35 of New York’s Executive Law are eligible to have access to such records (see, Executive Law §837, ). Additionally, an individual or the attorney for such individual, upon proper identification, may review his or her own CHRI for the purpose of challenge or correction. Finally, access to a person’s CHRI is also permitted when a court determines that such information is relevant to an issue in litigation and issues an order or a subpoena for such a record. Since your request does not meet the foregoing criteria, your request for CHRI is denied.
Pursuant to POL §89(4)(a), you may appeal this determination within 30 days to the Counsel, Division of Criminal Justice Services, 80 South Swan St., Albany, NY 12210 or by email at
Very truly yours,
Records Access Officer
