New York State Youth Executive Pardons Program

New York State Youth Pardon Program

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is offering executive pardons to New Yorkers convicted of nonviolent crimes at ages 16 and 17, who have been crime free for a minimum of 10 years since their offense.


For individuals who receive this pardon, the New York State Office of Court Administration has stated that it will restrict public access court records, no longer making them available to private employers, landlords, or other companies that seek this information.
