We have had another client’s police caution deleted. The client had been issued a police caution for theft.

The client had been issued an a caution for shoplifting a number of years ago.

The client had forgotten to pay for a small item from a well known shop, being distracted by her young child. On her way out of the shop the client was detained by the security staff. The security staff did not listen to her explanations and the police were summoned.

She was taken to the police station, misled about the impact of the caution, and decided to admit the allegation, and accept the caution in order to escape from police custody.

The client had tormented herself for many years about the caution, regretting her decision to accept it, and felt the caution was an unfair black mark against her name.

Theft Caution Deleted

On reviewing the police’s evidence, we concluded that there were some material errors in her case, and so we drafted a deletion application to the police.

Within several months the police acknowledged the caution had been unfairly issued, and agreed to the expungement of the client’s record.

The caution was completely deleted, as was the client’s PNC record, fingerprints and DNA records.

The client now has a completely clear record on the PNC and is “no trace” on an ACRO Police Certificate.
