“ROCKLAND, Maine — Theodore Berry, 24, was arrested and charged last month with domestic violence assault, but he’s not quietly waiting for his case to proceed through the criminal justice system.

Berry, who came within 35 votes of being elected to the Rockland City Council last November, has asked the court to seal any documents pertaining to his criminal case and order the removal from the Internet of a BDN article that reported the arrest.” – Bangor Daily News

Theodore Berry is currently serving as his own attorney. Apparently, he has proven the truth of the old saying, “A man who is his own attorney has a fool for a client.”

    Assuming he were to convince a judge to order removal of all references to his arrest from the internet, that order would be as effective as King Canute’s command for the incoming tide to halt.
