Dennis Farina Gun Charge Wiped From Record
The Midnight Run star was arrested in May of 2008 after he was caught carrying a loaded and unregistered .22 calibre pistol through security at Los Angeles' LAX Airport.
He was booked for carrying a concealed weapon but later reached a deal with prosecutors to have the felony reduced to the lesser accusation of entering an airport sanitary area with a weapon, reports TMZ.com.
Farina, 64, pleaded no contest to the charge last July and was sentenced to two years probation. The actor was back in court on Friday, exactly one year after he accepted the deal, with his lawyer Blair Berk requesting the withdrawal of the no contest plea, telling the judge, "Not all mistakes should be prosecuted as crimes."
But he received more than he was asking for when the judge decided to scrap the charge altogether and have the arrest expunged from his otherwise clean record.
