    Re: difficult sentence

    To "lift prints off" is when the police use a method to check to see if fingerprints were left on objects/furniture etc at the scene of a crime. You will see this in all detective movies when the FBI or police first visit the crime scene and try to get "prints" of those who may have been at the scene of the crime. The fingerprints will help them find the "bad guys".
