how can I help with this please?
So, in short, you accepted a caution?
In that case, it cannot be reviewed.
You accepted a caution. There is no appeal. It is like a guilty plea at court. You have to admit an offence to receive a caution.
The only challenge is judicial review which will cost in excess of £5k and not really have much chance of success. It is a very high test. You have to show that the decision was one that no reasonable officer would have made and the problem with that here is that you had a solicitor who did not prevent you accepting a caution or advice you not to do so.
Cautions are fairly final I'm afraid.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You accepted a caution at the police station.
You would have been given a caution at arrest and in interview.
You do not have a challenge as I have explained.
I'm not sure what else i can say?
You cannot challenge a caution save in the way that i explained.
