Historic Indecent Assault Police Caution Expunged

We have again had a police caution removed for a client. The caution was issued decades ago and, due to it being of a sexual nature, continued to be disclosed on a standard and enhanced DBS certificate.

The client had previously applied to the police to have the caution expunged, without success.

After we reviewed the file, despite the significant amount of time that had elapsed, we were able to identify a major flaw in the police’s conduct of the case.

The police agreed with our assessment of the evidence, and reviewed the file again, resulting in the deletion of the client’s police caution, PNC record, fingerprints and biometric data.

Now that the record is removed, the client will have a clear DBS certificate and will be able to apply for roles without the fear of having damaging information disclosed.
