Drugs Police Caution Deleted for International Travel

Our client had been issued with a caution for possession of cocaine. The client had felt that he had always denied the allegation, but that he had been browbeaten into accepting the caution.

The client stated that he had been wrongly accused of being in possession of the cocaine, however in order to avoid being prosecuted, and to secure his quick release from the police station, he had accepted the caution.

At the time of accepting the caution the client did not anticipate having a career that would take him abroad. The client approached us as he wanted to move to the United States where his drugs caution would cause him serious difficulties in obtaining his Green Card. For details on travel to the United States please visit here: United States Waiver of Ineligibility & Criminal Records.

We gathered together the client’s file from the police, and after our review of the evidence, we were able to determine that the client had a case for deletion of his caution. We promptly drafted detailed legal representations and submitted these to the police.

Within a relatively brief period of time, the police agreed to the deletion of the caution, the PNC arrest record, and the client’s biometric data.

Subsequently we also applied for the deletion of the PND local records retained by the police; the police also agreed to delete these records.
