Police Caution Removed for Nurse
Our client had been arrested following on from a domestic argument with her husband.
Our client had an argument with her husband which resulted in the police being called. When the police arrived the client’s husband did not want his wife to be arrested, however the police insisted on arresting and taking our client into detention.
Although the husband did not provide a signed statement, the police were able to base their case on the original 999 call that had been made to them.
The police threatened the client with prosecution if she did not accept a police caution. Concerned for her career, and the possibility of going to prison, the client accepted a police caution.
Since receiving the caution the client has had significant difficulty in progressing her career, which not only impacted her, but the rest of her family.
Upon receiving the client’s instructions we investigated the case with the police, and then prepared detailed representations.
The police, after consideration, agreed to delete the client’s police caution, which is now no longer being revealed on her DBS certificate.
