Police Caution Removed

Police Caution Removed

We have had a police caution removed for a client after making successful representations to the police.

The client had taken private paying legal advice from a leading firm of solicitors before accepting the police caution. The solicitors advised the client to accept the caution.

After reviewing the file we determined that the caution had been unlawfully given as no offence had been committed.

After our representations to the police, the caution, arrest record and DNA and fingerprints were deleted. We have requested the original firm of solicitors to refund our client for their incorrect advice.

Thank you Matt for getting the caution removed, this is wonderful news
