Boston Municipal Court
Motion to Seal Record Chapter 276 Section 100(c)
Client was an all-around pleasant hardworking professional who had been charged with soliciting last year. The case was dismissed—but he wanted to make sure that no employer could see that he was charged in the past. Attorney Barabino prepared a motion to seal clients record. The motion included a number of items to include the clients background and reason for filing, affidavits and attachments. On the day of the hearing, client and Attorney Barabino presented the petition in court and the judge, ALLOWED the motion. As a matter of law, client may now truthfully answer on any job application that he has never been arrested for, or charged with, any crime.
RESULT: PETITION TO SEAL ALLOWED
