Deletion of a Domestic Assault Police Caution

Our client had been issued a police caution in relation to a dispute with a partner. The police have been called, but by the time the police arrived the client’s partner did not support any action being taken.

The police nevertheless arrested our client and took her to the police station for questioning.

At the police station the client was advised to accept a police caution or face being prosecuted at court. As the client was a high profile businesswoman, court proceedings would have been seriously damaging to her career.

After being released from custody, and on discovering the implications the caution would have on her professional career, and also her ability to live and travel abroad, the client may contact with us.

On investigated the client’s case we discovered some failures in the police’s procedure, and advised the client that there was a case to argue for deletion.

Within a few months of submitting detailed representations to the police, the police force concerned agreed to expunge the client’s caution.

Along with deleting the caution, the police also agreed to expunge the PNC arrest record, the clients fingerprints and DNA, and also the client’s custody photo.
