    Answered . Normally, New York State Criminal Procedure Law §160.55 provides for the return of fingerprints, photographs and sealing of a defendant’s conviction of a violation of the penal code or a traffic infraction. A conviction of a “violation” of the penal code should not be confused with a conviction for misdemeanor or felony, which can not be sealed under New York State law. However, Driving While Abilities Impaired (1192.1) is a traffic infraction it is specifically exempted from the application of this statute.
