have you sent off for a crb check?
If he got an absolute discharge then he must have been convicted?
It cannot have been thrown out. It is a sentence.
He was convicted of underage sex then.
What level of checking is he facing?
It depends on the level of checking he faces.
This will not show on basic or standard checking but it would show on enhanced checking.
I cannot immediately see why he is on the sex offenders register if he received an absolutely discharge when he was a youth but that is another issue.
It is very unlikely that he is facing an enhanced check. Very few people do.
Can I clarify anything for you?
He can get an absolute discharge.
He would not have gone on the register though.
Youths do not unless they can sentences of more than 12 months.
