Hello James my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it I can help with about your question today please?
How many years ago was this? What penalty did You get?
What penalty did you get for criminal damage?
And just to be clear you pleaded guilty?
Did you have to go to court? If you did you must have had a penalty
Do you have any other convictions?
Or were you offered a caution?
Well I don't think you have a record. If you never went to court then you don't have a court conviction. If you were not offered a caution then you don't have one of those.
As such it appears to be that you do mot have a Criminal record.
You need to write to the police and ask for a copy of your police national computer printout, there is a fee for this.
But they will send you a copy and you will see what you have, if anything.
But on the basis you didn't go to court and were not offered a caution, I can't see how you have a criminal record.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
You said you never went to court. If you never went to court there won't be a conviction.
Can I clairfy anything else for you? Alex
You cant be guilty without going to Court. You have to attend Court for sentence if you are guilty.
Does that clarify? Alex
