How do I trace a criminal? #general

Dear genners -

A man I am researching has turned up in the 1930 Census as an inmate
at the state prison in Auburn. New York. Any ideas on how to find out
why he was in jail or when he got out ?

Surely there must be a way to work back >from his status as a prisoner
to a record of the court procedure that put him there.

Is there a lawyer in the house?
