We have successfully defended a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) barred listed prosecution and subsequently argued for the deletion of the client’s police caution.

The client had been issued with a police caution and placed on the child and vulnerable persons barred list. The client was prosecuted for applying for a regulated job from which he was barred.

On the first day of trial representations were made that the trial was unfair as the original caution had been unlawfully issued.

After an adjournment of the trial the CPS offered no evidence and the trial collapsed.

Subsequent to the collapsed trial we made representations so the police for the caution to be expunged. After meeting with initial resistance, we were able to persuade the police that the caution ought to be deleted without the need for costly judicial review proceedings.

I just wanted to say thank you once again for your steady perseverance and support throughout this almost 2 year case.
