Here's Five Things.

Good morning, here are five things to know today:

The owner of a Medford business who has admitted to making over a half-million dollars in unauthorized charges on one customer's credit card wants to have his sentencing memorandum sealed from the public, according to court filings. The attorney for Harry Levy, owner of Hank Lee's Magic Factory, filed a motion earlier this month asking the memorandum be filed under seal. It includes the outcome of a forensic psychological evaluation and numerous letters of support, according to the filing, submitted by attorney Steven Sussman. "The memorandum contains personal information about the defendant in which the defendant has a protected privacy interest that outweighs any interest of the public knowing the defendant’s background," Sussman wrote.
