BB, a 36-year-old engineer, was charged with Malicious Destruction of Property. The charge arose out of a fight with his wife whereby a teacup was broken. No, seriously, he was charged with a felony after breaking a teacup in a fight with his wife. It seems like a joke, but it's true. This stuff actually happens. Anyways, the case was dismissed. Unfortunately, by merely being charged with the crime BB had a "record."
Attorney Henry Fasoldt successfully represented BB in both the case-in-chief and the record sealing process. The judge agreed to seal BB's record by ruling that he suffered current and potential professional prejudice by the existence of the charge on his record
