Dear Mr. Hassett:

This is in response to your Freedom of Information Law request for incarceration records pertaining to Gaspar Vetrano.

Please be advised that the only records maintained by the Division of Criminal Justice Services (Division) pertaining to an individual's incarceration is criminal history record information (CHRI), also referred to as "rap sheets," which would reflect sentencing information that would indicate whether the subject had been sentenced to incarceration. Should such records even exist pertaining to Gaspar Vetrano, please be advised that CHRI maintained by the 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[2][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[6], [8]). 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 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 for CHRI does not meet the foregoing criteria, it is denied. As noted, the Division has no other records pertaining to an individual's incarceration.

Please note that the Office of Court Administration ("OCA") conducts criminal history record searches for a fee. For information regarding how to obtain a criminal history record from OCA, visit the OCA website at or call OCA's Criminal History Record Search Unit at (212) 428-2943.

Pursuant to POL §89(4)(a), you may appeal this determination within 30 days to the Counsel, Division of Criminal Justice Services, 4 Tower Place, Albany, NY 12203-3764.

Very truly yours,

Valerie Friedlander
Records Access Officer
