Saunders Law successfully applies to have a police caution removed.
Our client was issued a police caution in 2016 for common assault after an altercation at his family home with his wife. During the altercation he kicked his wife in the shin and grabbed her arm in an attempt to move her from the door. The police were called by a neighbour after they heard screaming.
After six years, our client instructed us to make an application to have the caution removed. After reviewing the documentation received from both the police and ACRO, Saunders Law made an application for record deletion under the ground that it was no longer in the public interest to retain the caution on his record.
Under the ground of public interest, we made the following arguments:
- Our client was remorseful during police interview,
- The implications of a caution were never explained to him,
- Our client was very emotional during his time at the police station and understood that his only option was to accept the caution,
- The caution was causing difficulty with both his career and personal life,
- The caution was preventing him from moving country to care for his elderly parents,
- The caution was preventing him from career progression,
Saunders Law made the application in January 2023 and received the successful outcome in April 2023. The solicitor with conduct was Amber Richardson, supervised by Ali Parker.
