FIND OUT WHO WAS ARRESTED!

Looking for someone who was arrested in New York?  What to know WHO IS IN JAIL?  You can use webcrims to find out who is in jail in New York!

KINDA!!  :-/

When people are arrested in New York (particularly New York City), they are arrested by the Police (most of the time).  So when the NYPD arrests someone, you are not going to find them without going to or calling the police station.  Sometimes, they drive around in vans for a while until they are finally processed.  When the person is processed and put into the system, sometimes you can find out information about them by calling the arraignment clerk.  WEBCRIMS is an amazing site, however, they will not be on WEBCRIMS yet.  The best way to think of WEBCRIMS is to think of it as the calendar for the New York Criminal Courts.  It contains Supreme Court and Criminal Court cases that are scheduled for a court date in the future.  WEBCRIMS is a future appearance system.  If a case does not have a future appearance scheduled, it will not usually be on WEBCRIMS.

SO CAN I FIND SOMEONE ARRESTED ON WEBCRIMS?!?!?

Once someone has been arrested in New York, they have to be processed before they can see a Judge.  Until that person has a court file and that information is entered into the Court system computer, you will not see them on WEBCRIMS.  That means that you may not see someone on the WEBCRIMS website until right before or right after that person is arraigned.  Before that person sees a Judge at arraignment, you are not going to see any accurate information about who the District Attorney on a case is, or what bail the court has set in a case.  Once the arraignment has happened (or right before) you can see someone’s charges on WEBCRIMS.  You can also see someone’s next court date on WEBCRIMS.  WEBCRIMS will also show if the court set a bail in a criminal case.

HOW CAN YOU SEARCH FOR CASES ON WEBCRIMS?

Remember, WEBCRIMS only has active CRIMINAL cases (and summonses).  If someone was arrested and the charges were dropped or if they took a plea at arraignment and the case is OVER, then you may never see the case on WEBCRIMS, even if the person was arrested and charged with a crime.  WEBCRIMS is a system which shows active cases in real time.  This is important because a great deal of the criminal cases that get filed in New York are dealt with by plea at arraignment.

IF A CASE IS NOT ON WEBCRIMS, DOES THAT MEAN THE CASE IS CLOSED?

NO!  Just because a criminal case is not on WEBCRIMS does not mean it is not a pending or open criminal case.  Sometimes cases do not appear because the new court date has not been entered into the system yet.  Sometimes a case will not appear on WEBCRIMS because someone missed court and a warrant has been issued.  When the Judge issues a warrant, a new court date is not set.  This is a good example of a case that is still open and is still pending but does not have a future court date.  Such being said, the site is NOT an accurate way to rule out whether someone has an open case.  WEBCRIMS shows you if someone has a court date coming up in an open case (most of the time).  Another example of cases that are open which might not appear on WEBCRIMS are violations of probation or parole.  Sometimes people are on probation and they violate that probation (or parole) and get arrested.  In those cases, they can be arrested and remanded and will be held in a jail.  The person will not appear in WEBCRIMS in the probation example until the court sets a court date for a hearing.  In the parole example, because the hearings are administrative hearings, you may not see the person in WEBCRIMS.  Generally, case information is updated quickly on WEBCRIMS (daily), but that is not always the case.

YOU CAN NOT USE WEBCRIMS TO FIND:

  • You can not find criminal cases that have been dismissed on WEBCRIMS
  • You can not find criminal cases that are closed on WEBCRIMS
  • You can not find cases without a future court date on WEBCRIMS (if a person missed court and now has a warrant and no future court date has been set, the case will not appear on webcrims)
  • You can not find a case on WEBCRIMS if a Judge has decided to seal the case
  • You can not find a case in which an eligible YOUTHFUL OFFENDER has been arrested and prosecuted on WEBCRIMS
  • You can not use WEBCRIMS as an arrest inquiry – Cases don’t appear on WEBCRIMS immediately after someone is arrested

 I HAVE A DAT, CAN I FIND MY NEXT COURT DATE ON WEBCRIMS?

NO (most of the time)!  You can not use WEBCRIMS to find your next Court Date.  This is because when you get a DAT, the NYPD is giving you a ticket with the next court date.  The Court will not yet have that information and so they have not yet imputed it into the WEBCRIMS system.  That being the case, even though you have a DAT, it will not always appear on WEBCRIMS.  Just because you can not find your DAT information on WEBCRIMS does not mean you do not have court or that you do not have an open case.  Even if you don’t see your DAT on WEBCRIMS, you still have to go to court on the date of your DAT and/or on the date that any letter from the court tells you to appear.

Suffolk County Arraignments

CentralBookingINFOLOGOWhen Does Someone See A Judge In Suffolk County?

Are you looking for someone arrested in Suffolk County?

Suffolk County is a big place.  If you are trying to find a person who was arrested in Suffolk, you may want to call the police station nearest to where in Suffolk County the person was arrested.  When a person is arrested in Suffolk County, they are taken to one of the following places:

  • A Suffolk County Police Precinct
  • A Village Police Department
  • An East End Town Police Department

Even if someone is arrested by a Village Police Department, that person will usually be taken to the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) for additional processing.

Click Here for a list of Police precincts in Suffolk County (SCPD Addresses).

Click Here for a list of phone numbers to SCPD Precincts.

Click here for a list of Criminal Courthouses in Suffolk County and to find the address of a Court in Suffolk.



In New York City, people who arrested go from the Police Station to Central Booking. In Suffolk County, there is no Central Booking. However, the person should still be arraigned at the Courthouse within 24 hours of arrest.  However, unlike New York City, where there can be a huge backlog of people being processed, a Suffolk County defendant can be processed and arraigned pretty quickly, many times in the same day and within hours.  Unlike arraignments in New York City, which go from the morning until 1am, arraignments in Nassau and Suffolk go until 5pm.  A person arrested is arraigned in the District Court Arraignment part.

What is an Arraignment?
An arraignment is when someone who has been arrested sees a Judge to enter a plea. At the arraignment the Court will also set a bail. In some cases, no bail is set. In Suffolk County, after someone is arrested, that person is often interviewed by the Department of Probation. The Suffolk County Department of Probation will then make a recommendation regarding the need for a bail to the Court based upon the interview with the person arrested. The person’s lawyer will make what is called a bail argument.  Please note that sometimes in Suffolk County, people are arraigned without an attorney representing them.

In Suffolk County, the District Court Arraignments take place seven days a week in Courtroom D-11. Each day, arraignments in Suffolk County start at 9:30.

Looking for Court Information?
Suffolk County District Court has a recorded information phone number.  The Suffolk County Court Number is a good starting point for finding information relating to a Suffolk County Criminal Case or Suffolk County Arraignment.  The number is 631-853-7500.

PEOPLE IN POSSESSION OF POT IN NYC MAY GET TO SKIP CENTRAL BOOKING!

Mayor Bloomberg announced on February 14, 2013 that people arrested for possessing small amounts of marijuana in New York City will get a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) rather than spend the night in jail.  If someone is arrested for having “weed” in NYC and he or she passes a warrant check, that person in possession of marijuana in New York City will be eligible for a Desk Appearance Ticket.

This announcement took place in Bloomberg’s Final State of the City Address, in which he stated”

But we know that there’s more we can do to keep New Yorkers, particularly young men, from ending up with a criminal record. Commissioner Kelly and I support Governor Cuomo’s proposal to make possession of small amounts of marijuana a violation, rather than a misdemeanor and we’ll work to help him pass it this year. But we won’t wait for that to happen.

“Right now, those arrested for possessing small amounts of marijuana are often held in custody overnight. We’re changing that. Effective next month, anyone presenting an ID and clearing a warrant check will be released directly from the precinct with a desk appearance ticket to return to court. It’s consistent with the law, it’s the right thing to do and it will allow us to target police resources where they’re needed most.

Currently, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo is seeking to lower the penalties for carrying small amounts of pot.

A Desk Appearance Ticket is also known as a DAT.  When someone is arrested, they can be sent to Central Booking from the police station and then be held overnight to see a Judge at the Criminal Court or, the police can give them a DAT for possession of marijuana (in this example) and that will be an appointment slip of sorts informing the person of the charge and the date that they are supposed to appear at the courthouse.

CentralBookingINFOLOGOWhat is Bail?

How Does Bail Work?

Bail is an amount set by a Judge in a case to ensure that a person will come back to court.

Bail Is Set To Prevent Someone From Fleeing….

This is the Definition of BAIL!

Bail is basically a way of ensuring that a person involved in a court case comes back to court and does not run away.  Bail is set in different types of cases.  The most common type of case is a criminal case.  However, bail is not just set in criminal cases.  For instance, many immigration cases involve situations where deportation is at issue but no crime is alleged to have been committed.  In these cases, a bail might be set by a Judge so that the person that is in the deportation proceeding comes back to court and just does not ignore the case and live life as if nothing is happening.

Why Does A Court Set Bail?

Judges often see situations in which people fail to return to Court.  Bail is often necessary to get someone to come back to Court.

How Does A Court Decide Bail?

What Is Bail? Bail Is Something That Is Going To Bring You Back To Court…

Bail is about flight risk… It is going to be whatever a Judge thinks it needs to be to prevent you from getting on the next plane out of the country…

Bail Has One Purpose: to ensure that a person attends all future court dates…


There are a number of factors that a Court will consider when determining what bail should be.  Different states use different criterion to set bail.  These factors include:

  1. The kind and degree of control or restriction that is necessary to ensure someone comes to court when required
  2. The Person’s character
  3. The Person’s mental condition
  4. The Person’s reputation and habits
  5. The Person’s employment
  6. The Person’s financial resources
  7. The Person’s family ties to the county or state
  8. How long the Person has lived in the community
  9. The Person’s Criminal Record
  10. The Person’s previous history of appearing in Court (Were warrants issued in prior cases?)
  11. The weight of the evidence and factors which might made conviction unlikely
  12. The sentenced which may be imposed

FIGURING OUT WHEN A BAIL MIGHT BE VERY HIGH IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE

(It is not an exact science either!)

FOR EXAMPLE:

If a Person with a criminal record and warrants is accused of a serious crime in a State they do not live in…

As in, you live down south, but are accused of a murder in New York State…

What is the Bail going to be?

THE BAIL IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE REALLY HIGH….

YOU PAY THE BAIL AND YOU WILL BE “OUT ON BAIL” UNTIL THE CASE IS OVER (THOUGH THE JUDGE CAN REVISIT BAIL AT ANY POINT).

There are no ties to the community, there are previous arrests, there is a warrant history, which means the person has already shown that they don’t return to court and the crime is serious (though the charge itself should not be used alone to determine bail…maybe this is a legal fiction, but that is how it is supposed to work).  A Judge is most likely going to set a serious bail in this example.


FOR EXAMPLE:

You were in your house that you lived in for 20 years.  You were minding your business and listening to music after a long day’s work.  Your neighbor did not like the sound of your music.  He came into your apartment through an open door and turned it down.  You both had words.  He hit you in the face.  Your pet roach witnessed the fight and became hostile.  It attacked your neighbor and bit him.  You then hit him with a stick over and over again until he ran out of the house.  He called the police.  They arrested you and another neighbor took your pet roach to her house.

WHAT IS BAIL GOING TO BE?

THERE MIGHT NOT EVEN BE A BAIL.  You were in your house.  You have lived there for 20 years.  Your Lawyer will argue that you plan to fight the charges, and that you have a good chance of winning as you were a victim and you were attacked.  Your Lawyer will also discuss your employment history, how you have no criminal history and how if not for that brave pet roach, you could have been seriously injured.  Further, he will argue that you must care for your roach and that you are responsible for caring for the roach and without you, the roach does not have a chance at a decent life.

IN THIS EXAMPLE YOU WOULD LIKELY BE RELEASED ON YOUR OWN RECOGNIZANCE (ROR).  This means you will be released without having to pay a monetary bail.  Often there will be conditions that the court will set.  They may issue an ORDER OF PROTECTION stating that you have to stay away from your neighbor while the case is pending.  This will usually include contact online (so if you are facebook friends, you need to defriend the person and not right back if he tries to talk to you…even if he initiates contact, YOU can go to jail for violating the order of protection).  This also usually means no third party contact.  That means you can’t have friends trying to talk him into dropping the case.  You can go to jail for that too.

IF THE PERSON HAS PASSPORTS, HOUSES OVERSEAS, AND A PLANE….

A COURT MIGHT CONSIDER THOSE RESOURCES AS A RISK FOR FLIGHT AND SET A BAIL…

WHAT IS BAIL GOING TO BE?

WHO KNOWS…

BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURE…

BAIL IS GOING TO BE WHATEVER THE JUDGE THINKS WILL MAKE YOU FLY YOUR PLANE BACK HERE FOR THE NEXT COURT DATE

OR DRIVE YOUR PINTO…

OR TAKE THE TRAIN…

WHAT ARE BAIL BONDS?

WHAT IS A BAIL BONDSMAN?

There are other things you should know.  Like there may be a cash bail and a bond amount set.  What is the bond?  Sometimes, the bail is high and someone may need to get a bail bond in order to post bail.  A bail bond often comes from a bail bondsman.  A bail bondsman is someone who posts bail on behalf of an individual.  The bail bondsman might take a smaller amount than the actual bail amount in order to post a bond for a higher bail amount.  How much is a bail bondsman? Well, that varies.  You should ask the different bail bondsman how much you must give them in order for them to post bail for someone.  Different bondsman might charge completely different prices.  This is no different than any insurance.  In fact, it is very similar to some extent.  Different insurance companies will assign your risk differently.  Different bail bondsman will assign your risk of flight differently and that will be one factor in how much you will have to put up.  Other factors like assets are often considered as well.  However, each bail bondsman has his or her own criterion and requirements.  Many will want to speak to the person periodically (once a week, after court, etc).  You should consult a bail bondsman for more information about posting bail using a bail bond.

What To Do If Your Car is Booted For Parking Tickets In New York City

New York City has recently enacted a Policy of putting car tire boots on cars that have more than three hundred fifty dollars ($350) in New York City (NYC) parking violations/parking tickets.  You can also be booted if you owe New York City more than $350 in red light camera or bus lane violation tickets that are in judgment.
image

A company called PayLock has been hired to implement this New York City policy of putting boots on cars that have parking violations.  The current fees are the same or higher than if your car is actually towed.  However, if you don’t pay the fees within two (2)  days, the car will be towed and additional storage and towing fees will apply.
image

The system is as follows: A marshal will find a car and verify it has more than $350 in judgments.  Once verified, PayLock will be authorized to place a boot on the car.

What to Do if Your Car is Booted for Parking Violations in New York City:

1)      Call the Toll Free Number that is on the BIG Sticker on your window.  Current cars have 877-207-2134 as the number to call for Boot Removal and Fine Payment.  This number is active 24 hours a day.


2)      Pay your fine!  There will be an additional $180 “boot fee” which is paid to PayLock, a $70 Sheriff’s/marshal’s “execution fee” plus a 5% “poundage fee” in addition to the fines that you have.

3)      There are also credit card “convenience fees” which are charged if you use a credit card to pay your NYC Parking Ticket fines.

4)      If the motorist or person who has gotten the tickets does not pay the fees within two days, the car will be towed.

5)      If a booted car is towed, there will be an additional $185 towing fee (on top of the $180 booting fee).

6)      If you pay the fines and fees AFTER getting booted but BEFORE getting towed, you must also return the boot to a city payment center within 24 hours or face additional penalties of $25 per day – up to a maximum of $500.

7)      If you are towed and your car is sitting in a storage facility/storage yard/pound, there is an additional storage fee of $10 per day for the first three days, and $15 per day after the first three days.

8) Make Sure you take Note of the Boot Violation Number.  You may need it.

If so, the answer depends on what court your case is in. There is a way to search court cases.  The New York State Court System has free court records and Court Date Look Up/Court Date Search Sites for various Courts Including

  • Supreme Court
  • Civil Court

 

CRIMINAL COURT DATE LOOK UP – FIND NEXT COURT DATE IN CRIMINAL COURT

If your case is in Criminal Court (New York Criminal Court, New York District Court, New York Supreme Court), then you need to use the Court’s WEBCRIMS to find your next Court date.   You can also use WEBCRIMS to find free criminal records. By logging into WEBCRIMS as a public user, anyone, whether you are a defendant or an attorney/lawyer, can find someone’s next court date.  You can find information and the next court date for both misdemeanor and felony cases.  The system also gives you information about what court the case is in, the judge on the case, the charges, the defendant’s name and date of birth, the amount of bail that was set in the case, when the case was on last, all dates the case has been on the calendar, and whether or not a plea offer was made by the district attorney.  WEBCRIMS is run by the Unified Court System and is the OFFICIAL Court Date Look Up website!  Please note that often people who are arrested and given a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) will often not find their next court date in the WEBCRIMS system.  This is because the DAT is issued by the Police Department and not the Court system directly.

FIND SOMEONE’S BAIL IN A CRIMINAL CASE

If you trying to find out if someone who was arrested has a bail, you can use the Unified Court System WEBCRIMS site to find a bail amount in a particular case.  You can log into WEBCRIMS and look up someone who was arrested (defendant’s) information and find out if the Judge/Court set a bail at the arraignment and often, it will tell you how much that bail is (bail amount).  You can also find out if someone was released on their own recognizance (ROR).

WHAT IS AN ARRAIGNMENT???


An arraignment is when the Court officially takes jurisdiction over a case. Everyone comes together in front of a judge and they formally charge the person with the crime alleged. A plea is entered at that time (GUILTY/NOT GUILTY). If a NOT GUILTY PLEA is entered, the Court must then decide whether the person charged should stay in jail or be released. The Court sets a BAIL. The Court usually tries to assess flight risk when considering bail. This means, the Court, which does not know your loved one, will have to figure out whether he or she will return to Court. They use lots of factors, including the nature of the charges, the person’s job history and educational background, and whether or not the person has significant ties to the community. They also take note of who has bothered to come to court on behalf of the person during the arraignment. IT IS THE LAWYER WHO WILL ARGUE THE BAIL APPLICATION. There may be no BAIL. In that case, the person is released on his or her own recognizance (ROR). That means the person can leave and will come back at a later date. If a bail is set, the person will be held until bail is posted.THE REST OF THE CASE WILL BE DEALT WITH AT LATER DATES. THERE WILL NOT BE A TRIAL ON THE DAY OF ARRAIGNMENT. Arraignments usually happen from 9am to 1am – 7 days a week (except Staten Island/Richmond County).

 

What is a DP?

DP stands for “Decline Prosecution” or when the District Attorney (DA) declines to prosecute a case.  This means that someone who has been arrested will not have any further action taken against him or her.  While the DA can file charges at a later date, often, this does not occur.  Sometimes, someone will say they were DP’ed.  When someone is released after arrest but before the arraignment (released before seeing a Judge) because the DA decides to decline prosecute a case, it is said that they were DPed.

In some situations, a person who was DP’d may want to consider contacting a lawyer regarding a possible civil rights suit and/or false imprisonment, false arrest action.  This is especially the case where a person who was arrested suffers damages.  Damages can be due to police brutality but may arise from someone losing days of work, having expenses as a result of an arrest, or from property damage that occurs as a result to or incident to an arrest.

If you are looking to talk to a lawyer regarding a civil rights case against the City of New York, you should do so RIGHT AWAY.  There are may rules that can bar your case if you don’t take action within a certain amount of time.  This applies to suits against the City in general, including false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force, civil rights, police brutality, false imprisonment, and similar cases.  While our firm handles these cases, this information, as with the rest of the information on our site, is provided for informational purposes and is not intended to create an attorney/client – lawyer/client relationship.  You should discuss these issues with your lawyer.

Get out a pen and some paper. You should get the following useful information from Central Booking, the Police Department that made the arrest, or the Arraignment Clerk at the Criminal Courthouse:

Arrest Number:
Date & Time of Arrest:
County of Arrest:
Docket Number:

These Items will be helpful for tracking your loved one through the New York Criminal Courts and Central Booking. The ARREST NUMBER is used by CENTRAL BOOKING and the POLICE DEPARTMENT (NYPD) to track people. The DOCKET NUMBER is used by the CRIMINAL COURT to track a Defendant’s Case. Each case gets a separate docket number. Each time someone is arrested, they get assigned a different ARREST NUMBER. The best way to get information is to call central booking and get the person’s ARREST NUMBER and then call the Arraignment Clerk’s at the Criminal Court in the County in which the person was arrested to get a Docket Number and find out when the person might be arraigned.

If someone is arrested, especially when the arrest was in the evening, that person will probably not see a judge until the next day. Sometimes, the person will see a judge the same day. A good rule of thumb, which is not absolute, is that the process can take about 24 hours.


 

REMEMBER:
OFTEN THE PHONES ARE BEING STAFFED BY ONE OR TWO PEOPLE FOR THE WHOLE COUNTY. THE CLERKS WORK VERY HARD. THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH HUNDREDS OF CONFUSED PEOPLE A DAY. DESPITE YOUR FRUSTRATION, BE KIND AND FRIENDLY TO THE CLERKS. PEOPLE SOMETIMES FORGET THAT A CLERK THAT PICKS UP THE PHONE IS JUST DOING HIS OR HER JOB AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ARREST THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE. BY PICKING UP THE PHONE, THAT PERSON HAS SHOWN THAT HE OR SHE WOULD LIKE TO HELP YOU AND GET YOU INFORMATION, IF HE OR SHE CAN. A LITTLE KINDNESS CAN GO A LONG WAY!

whether or not the person has significant ties to the community.They also take note of who has bothered to come to court on behalf of the person during the arraignment.IT IS THE LAWYER WHO WILL ARGUE THE BAIL APPLICATION.There may be no BAIL. In that case, the person is released on his or her own recognizance (ROR).That means the person can leave and will come back at a later date.If a bail is set, the person will be held until bail is posted.THE REST OF THE CASE WILL BE DEALT WITH AT LATER DATES.THERE WILL NOT BE A TRIAL ON THE DAY OF ARRAIGNMENT.Arraignments usually happen from 9am to 1am – 7 days a week (except Staten Island/Richmond County).

IMMIGRATION ISSUES

If your loved one IS NOT A CITIZEN of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, you MUST MAKE SURE THE ATTORNEY KNOWS THIS.This is very important.There are important additional considerations that must be accounted for when NON-CITIZENS are charged with a crime.Please
make sure you bring any immigration issues to the attention of your attorney
.

THE COURT SET BAIL, NOW WHAT!?

READY SET GO.It happens that quick sometimes.If you
can post bail in the Courtroom (it wont be there but if you can do it RIGHT AWAY) let the attorney handling the arraignment know so that he can inform the
Court.
He or she should know BEFORE the arraignment, not after.This is because if the Court isn’t aware that
bail is about to be posted, the person might be sent to a Borough house/holding facility.You can then post bail at a
number of locations at that point, but your loved one’s release may be delayed.This could happen anyway, but if you have any chance at a more expeditious release, it is doing things in this manner.

*THIS SITE MAY BE CONSIDERED ATTORNEY ADVERTISING IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS*  THIS SITE WAS CREATED BY A CRIMINAL LAW ATTORNEY & NOT BY THE COURT.

New York Criminal Law Firm

Please Note:

WWW.CENTRALBOOKING.INFO is run by a criminal attorney. We have tried to compile information helpful to those who have had a friend or loved one arrested in New York City. This site however, IS NOT RUN BY THE COURTS, OR ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY. We have tried throughout the site to help the General Public and our clients navigate the arraignment, central booking and arrest process by providing what we believe is information that will be helpful.

We have received many calls regarding Central Booking Numbers and the fact that many do not work or just ring. It may be helpful to call the arraignment clerk in the county that your friend or loved one was arrested in for assistance.


PLEASE NOTE, THESE NUMBERS CHANGE PERIODICALLY.

The following numbers may be of assistance to those seeking to obtain information regarding the arrest of a loved one and a future arraignment date/time:

Arraignment Clerks Phone Numbers:



Bronx County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

718-618-3008

Brooklyn/Kings County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

718-243-2545, 718-643-5296, 718-643-5675, 718-243-3501

New York County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

Queens County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

Richmond County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

718-390-8400

The arraignment clerk’s in each county court have information regarding when a person who has been arrested may see a Judge.  They are very busy.  Often, they not only do the work they have in the office, they also have to answer the phone.  Sometimes there are 1-2 clerks answering the phones for the whole county.  This means that it may be difficult to get through to find out if someone has been arrested, what someone has been charged with, or when the person may see a Judge in Court.  Please be patient.  The arraignment Clerk in each county is the best way to find someone arrested in New York City.  Please remember that the clerk might not have information on someone arrested in New York until that person is transported from the police precinct or put into the computer system.  Sometimes, someone arrested in New York City is not immediately taken to central booking.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office has an Inmate Information Page.

The inmate roster and census are updated daily, Monday through Friday.

How Do I Get My Property Back After Arrest in New York City?

Getting your stuff back after an arrest is not always as simple as asking for it back.  One of the biggest questions that first has to be asked is: WHY WAS THE PROPERTY TAKEN?

If your property was taken for SAFEKEEPING:

The owner of the property(or his or her representative – requires notarized letter):

  • must go to the borough property clerk office (Don’t wait a long time)
  • must have valid state issued identification (ID)
  • must have an “invoice number”

 

If your property was taken as Arrest Evidence:

The owner of the property(or his or her representative – requires notarized letter):

  • must go to the borough property clerk office no later than 120 days after the termination of the criminal proceedings
  • must have valid state issued identification (ID)
  • must have an “invoice number”
  • must have a District Attorney’s Release or a supervising District Attorney’s statement refusing to grant a release

If the property is not claimed or demanded before the 120 day period is up, the property may be disposed of by the Police Department Property Clerk.

  *THIS SITE MAY BE CONSIDERED ATTORNEY ADVERTISING IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS* Private Criminal Lawyer Jamel Oeser-Sweat, Esq. quickly discussing whether someone should hire a private attorney during arraignment in New York City.  The decision to hire a private criminal lawyer is an important one.  You should choose an experienced lawyer and/or law firm that you trust.  However, it is important not to discount the work done by Legal Aid Lawyers.  Legal Aid handles the majority of the cases in the City of New York.  Other attorneys that are assigned by the Court are on a panel and often also have their own private practices.  Some people do not realize that despite the fact that they have been “assigned” a lawyer, the lawyer may be a “private” lawyer.  These lawyers are part of the “Assigned Counsel Plan” and are screened and must meet certain requirements in order to take cases.  These lawyers are also referred to as “18-B” lawyers. Click Here for a New York Times Article on 18-B Lawyers.

Looking to find a lawyer?  Want to find an attorney in a specific area of law?  There are many ways to do so.  Your local bar association may be one place to find a good lawyer.  Bar Associations are often run by lawyers and require attorneys who are taking cases to meet certain qualifications and requirements.  These lawyer run associations screen attorneys to ensure that they are competent enough to handle legal matters.  If you are asking yourself: “How can I find a lawyer?” or “How can I find a good lawyer?” then you should be looking to use your network and resources.  Calling a lawyer that you have previously worked with for a referral is another good way to find an attorney.  There is no right or wrong way to conduct an attorney search.  If you need to search for attorney references, often the local court system will have a directory in which you can search for attorney licensing information.  These directories of online lawyers information can be helpful to ensure that someone you are considering working with is actually a lawyer.  Law Firms Attorneys and Lawyers often have websites that you can check out.  Google is a good resource for conducting a lawyer search or attorney search.
