Hi all, i'm hoping for somoe advice.
I am currently in the process of application for a number of jobs, however i have concerns over my disclosre period.
According to the revised Rehabillitation of Offenders Act, my sentence (a fine) should be spent 12 months post the date of sentencing.
I applied for a basic disclosure certificate (to check and ensure it has been removed from that level of check) and it is still sitting on record.
I have sent this information to my solicitor and to my surprise his response was "even after 35 years i am confused by the disclosure rules".
My question - how can i facilitate or instigate the removal of my conviction or "make it spent" on a basic disclosure check.
Really hope someone has an answer for this
