N.Y. Executive Law Section 838-B
Victim’s right to notice


Each police agency, prosecutorial agency and other law enforcement agency with jurisdiction over a sexual offense shall, upon request of the victim who has consented to report such offense to law enforcement, provide the sexual offense victim with notice of the date and location at which sexual offense evidence collected or received from such victim is assessed for CODIS eligibility and analyzed, whether a CODIS eligible profile was developed and whether or not a DNA match was identified, provided, however, that the police agency, prosecutorial agency or other law enforcement agency serving the jurisdiction may temporarily delay release of such DNA match information to the victim, prior to the arrest of a suspect alleged to have committed such offense, if such agency documents in writing and notifies the victim that release of such information would compromise the successful investigation of such sexual offense. The police or prosecutorial agency or other law enforcement agency in possession of a sexual offense evidence kit shall notify the sexual offense victim at least ninety days prior to the expiration of the twenty-year storage period in accordance with paragraph (k) of subdivision two of Public Health Law § 2805-I (Treatment of sexual offense victims and maintenance of evidence in a sexual offense)section twenty-eight hundred five-i of the public health law.
