Malicious Communications Police Caution Removed

Our client had been issued a police caution in the context of an acrimonious separation. The client’s ex-partner had made a number of allegations against her, including that she had sent some malicious messages.

The police investigated the matter and concluded that our client had indeed sent grossly offensive messages, and offered the client a caution. The duty solicitor advised the client to accept the caution, which the client did. The client was informed at the time that the caution would have no impact on her citizenship application, and also with respect to employment.

After leaving the police station the client became aware of the true implications of the caution and got in touch with us.

After analysing the evidence we were able to determine that there had been some procedural defects in the way the case had been administered, and that on the basis of the evidence, the client had not been guilty of sending malicious communications.

We submitted representations to the police and, after a relatively brief period of time, they agreed to the complete expungement of the client’s police record and biometric data.
