Successful Caution Removal for Possession of a Class A

Saunders Law has successfully applied to have a caution removed.

Our client had been issued with a police caution in 2013 for being in possession of a class A drug.

After nearly eleven years, our client instructed us to make an application for caution removal.  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 her record.

Under the ground of public interest, we made the following arguments:

  • At the time of the incident, our client was in a toxic and damaging relationship,
  • Her mental health had deteriorated,
  • She was intoxicated at the time of the incident and was handed the substance with no intention of taking it,
  • She was never informed of the implications of a police caution,
  • The caution had prevented her from pursuing a degree in Nursing and pursuing her career,
  • The caution was preventing her from moving abroad with her husband, and
  • Her husband had moved abroad for work and she was unable to obtain a visa due to the caution.

Saunders Law made the application in April 2024. We received the successful outcome in May 2024. The case was conducted by solicitor Amber Richardson, supervised by Ali Parker.
