Remove Online News Articles – Criminal Conviction Records, Arrest Records and Caution Records

If you have been arrested, cautioned or convicted then you may have found that news articles have appeared about your case online.

News articles published online are potentially permanent records of something that may have happened many years ago.

The law provides for strict rules about disclosure of past criminal arrests, cautions and convictions. If however your case happens to have entered the online public record your criminal record risks being disclosed forever – even if you were found not guilty or no charges were issued.
