Successful Case – Disclosure and Barring Service

Our client received a letter from the Disclosure and Barring Service stating that they were considering adding our client in the Children's Barred List and/or the Adults' Barred List following being issued with a caution for sexual assault contrary to section 3 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

Saunders Law made representations as to why our client shouldn’t be included in the Children's Barred List and/or the Adults' Barred List. These representations included but are not limited to:

  • We are currently representing our client to make representations for the caution to be removed based on the following grounds: ‘No Crime’, ‘Incorrect Disposal’ and ‘Public Interest’,
  • Our client should have never received a caution for sexual assault,
  • Our client only accepted a police caution and admitted to the offence following the negligent advice of the duty solicitor,
  • Ou client has an exemplary record and is of good character,
  • In the event that an application for deletion of the caution is unsuccessful, our client poses no threat as his caution would be disclosed to their employer on a DBS check. It is therefore not proportionate to add our client to either Barred List.

Saunders Law representations were successful, and our client was not added to the Children's Barred List and/or the Adults' Barred List.
