The motion to seal a conviction under the new New York law Section 160.59 represents a major step forward for New York Criminal Law, but it is not an automatic or easy process for a non-lawyer to navigate. The rules require that a judge consider a number of factors, some of which include the need to make legal arguments that many people will be unfamiliar with making.
