ABH Police Caution Deleted for Client

We have again had an ABH police cautioned deleted for our client.

The client was issued a police caution in relation to a domestic dispute with his sibling which resulted in his arrest.

The client didn’t take legal advice at the police station, as he was afraid it would make matters worse and cause a delay to his release, and so quickly accepted a police caution.

It was only after leaving the police station that the client realised the significant impact a police caution for Actual Bodily Harm (ABH) can have.

The current DBS disclosure rules state that a caution for ABH will be indefinitely disclosed on a standard and enhanced DBS certificate.

The client realised that the caution would significantly impact on his future professional career and got in touch with us.

After analysing the evidence, we were able to identify defects with the police’s case and the police caution, and made detailed submissions for the expungement of the caution.

Thank you for all your hard work – I could never thank you enough.

The police agreed our application and deleted the client’s caution, DNA, fingerprints and arrest record.
